This golf course is a traditional Japanese Hillside Golf Course with spectacular views of Mt. Fuji on every turn. The course offers an array of holes ranging from basic short holes through to challenging par fives, that although not long in length, they require accurate shots to score well. Gotemba has a one green configuration featuring unusually large bent grass greens.
The course is very challenging of the tee and often requires the consideration of both the land lie as well as the prevailing winds. The courses starting holes 1st and 10th start at the clubhouse and the 9th and 18th finish there striking a balance between uphill and downhill holes.
