Unzen Golf Course


Japan’s oldest public golf course.  Opened in 1913, the oldest public course in Japan, and

second oldest golf course after the Kobe Golf Club, which opened in 1903. Moreover, Unzen

has been designated as Japan’s first national park in 1934, and the golf course has been

popular among people both Japanese and foreigner as the national park’s main facility.



The course is a hilly course at an elevation of 750m, and at the time of its construction, there were

no machines. This historical, hand-made course, integrated with nature, has small undulations on

the fairway.  There is also an authentic short 9 hole course as well. Only 3 minutes by car from the

Onsen town, it is especially cool in the summertime, and can be enjoyed throughout the four seasons

while appreciating nature.
