around on the warm updrafts provided by nearby mount Hotaka, Tanigawa and Haruna. Donít let them distract you though as the greens here are quick and will require your full attention! Getting there is easy and just 1:15 minutes from Tokyo by
Shinkansen to Jomo Kogen Station, and if you reserve in advance a club shuttle will be waiting to take you to the course. Please check out the irresistible PLAY AND STAY package on the Gunma Country Clubs English site.

This is a pretty nice, relatively easy course without too many hazards. Some beautiful views of surrounding mountains.
Some hole are a little challenging, often playing bilnd makes the course fun. Interesting course, polite staff, good overall quality.
Nice course in good condition in a serene panoramic setting. Easy access from central Tokyo with club bus to/from clubhouse. Staff very friendly and helpful. Would recommend Gunma CC to anyone needing a relaxing break away from the city.
First visit last autumn unfortunately came on a drizzly day, so course condition probably is better than we experienced. Hard to beat the warm, friendly & very accommodating staff; plan to get back there again soon. (Written May 2009)
The Course is great condition. Being up in the mountains allowed the breezes to cool you down a bit.
The course was in great condition. Onsen is very good. It feel nice on skin. Easy to get from Tsukiyono IC.
Very fun day with splendid views on every hole. Well kept course with wide fairways, well manicured greens and challenging holes as well as a few easy par 3's. Will def. be recommending to friends, great day out of Tokyo.
A bit of everything on this course: wide fairways, narrow ones, some water, some hills. Challenging, but expensive.
