Kasumigaseki Country Club (East course)

Private: A course for members and their invited guests only.

Est. 1929

Kasumigaseki Country Club (East course): this most celebrated of Japanese courses has recently undergone a considerable renovation in preparation for hosting the men's and women's golf events at the 2020 Olympic Games. Not only has this maintained the East's excellent championship credentials, but also consolidated its position as one of Japan's top five golf courses.

While maintaining the existing routing of the holes, Logan Fazio and his design team have replaced the two greens per hole system, which was common in Japan as a way to deal with the country's extremely varied climate. Improved grasses have virtually eliminated the need for the two-green system. Both the East course and also excellent West course at Kasumigaseki now have one green per hole.
