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.

Tournaments

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
