Beautiful course with view of Mt. Fuji. Interesting mountain course with a lot of level changes. It is worth any penny!

A true world class golf experience, and great way to enjoy the beauty of Japan! The elevation change made for spectacular scenery and challenging play at every turn.

Played with Ben the golf professional and some colleagues. Very wet but good course and the lesson very worthwhile. Good access from Tokyo.

The fairways are brown right now. Difficult to find the ball at times. Beautiful Mount Fuji views, but in terms of golfing experience I've seen better in Japan. Canadian teacher available.

Excellent, must-play course; stay in the village below (5mins cab ride), very easy by train to reach etc. Could not have been a better place to play golf with my brother visiting from the UK, and Bennett is excllent value and fun as a guide round the cour

Great location, wonderful views and good layout. With Ben, the English speaking pro, you can get the most from club and course. A "must" for any British/USA/Canadian/Aussie golfer

Especially during weekdays it gives you great value for money.Beautiful view to Mount Fuji and easy access through Tome highway.Great fun to play with Ben san but depressing to learn that the whole golf swing is more or less from the....

I had the pleasure of a "golf experience" with Mr. Bennett Galloway. This experience included overnight stay, breakfast, 1 round of golf with Bennett accompanying and offering instruction throughout the game as well as putting tips and personal consuling

Mountine course. Some hidden holes. Can be foggy in the morning. No driving range. Selfplay OK.

Nice and quiet course in weekdays. The morning fog worsened the visibility in this mountain course. Also a couple of blind holes gave some extra trouble.

Fire the head groundsman. Tee boxes and some fairways rough as a bears arse. Maybe under snow for a few months in which case winter tees should be used.

Very hilly course with a lot of similar holes. Condition average. No special reason to come or com e back. Suffers from lack of space (as on mountain.) Fuji views gt.
