East course: designed by Kinya Fujita and Shiro Akaboshi (1929), with five holes redesigned by Charles "Hugh" Alison (1930). Modifications made by Taizo Kawata (1998) and a wide-ranging renovation made by Logan Fazio (son of Tom Fazio) in 2015.

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.
Private club - guests may only play Kasumigaseki's East Course if accompanied by a member.
In 1957, the fifth Canada Cup (known today as the World Cup of Golf) was staged on Kasumigaseki CC's East Course. The same course will again be in the spotlight as the golf venue for the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.
Directly bordering Kasumigaseki CC to the south is the also revered and private Tokyo Golf Club.
World: formerly ranked world's 86th best course (GOLF magazine, 2001; not in subsequent editions of this ranking).
Japan: 9th best course in Japan (Golf Digest, 2020).
Japan: 7th best course in Japan.
Solheim Cup: can Europe defend the most prestigious team trophy in women’s professional golf, when the 17th Solheim Cup is played out at the Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio (Sept 4-6).
Italian Open: Nicolai Højgaard recorded his first European Tour win (Sept 5), just a week after his twin brother Rasmus landed the European Masters title (Aug 29); the first brothers to win back-to-back on the European Tour.
The San Roque Club: "... how best to revitalise a course that had previously been fit to play regular host to the European Tour’s qualifying school finals..." by Toby Ingleton.
