E. Sneed and Taizo Kawata creatively utilized the natural vast landscape of Hokkaido and designed this authentic champion course which is blessed with beauty, but also provides ample opportunity for strategic play.
With a course rate of 75.7, it is also one of the most difficult course in Hokkaido.
In July 2016, the Japan Amateur Golf Competition was held here.
The contrast of white birch and Japanese pine trees on the front nine is beautiful while the layout of the back nine closely resembles the links of Scotland's courses.
The first authentic tournament course in Hokkaido to use bentgrass 007 for the beautiful high quality and high speed green. The total yardage is 7,312 yds, with a course rate of 75.7. The course is conditioned to host official competitions such as the Kojun Classic held in 2011, the Sapporo Open held from 2011 to 2015, and the Hokkaido Open held from 2013 to 2016.

The No. 18 hole at the end has the longest distance, with a difficult elevated green that is challenging even for the professionals.
