World renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones Jr has designed an absolute gem in the Japanese countryside with Oak Hills Country Club.
As you would expect from a designer of the calibre of Trent Jones Jr the course at Oak Hills Country Club is a real challenge and a design masterpiece.
Set within the natural landscape of towering trees and rolling hills the course blends wonderfully with its surroundings.
At 6900-yards from the back tees the course is not as long as some courses in the area, but the elevation changes make the course tough.
It is a player’s course, that deserves respect from all golfers.
The fairways are generally heavily protected by lakes, severe mounding and majestic bunkers that require good course management and sensible shot selection to avoid.
Large, undulating greens complete the tricky challenge that golfers face at Oak Hills Country Club, but the quality of the course and the superb maintenance makes this a must play golf course for those visiting the Chiba region of Japan.
An impressive clubhouse awaits, with superb facilities for members and their guests. Practice facilities include a driving range, putting and chipping green.
