CourseMap

  • Hole 1
    This is a pretty straight par-four hole. Aim slightly left of the fairway near the pine trees when for your tee shot.
  • Hole 2
    Try not to hit your tee shot too hard and aim slightly left of the fairway as the woods on the right side is OB.
  • Hole 4
    171 yards from the white tee. The undulating green with two green sdie bunkers requiring precise carry to the green.
  • Hole 5
    Par 5 with a dog-leg right. You’d better lay up for your second shot, carry to the green on the third as the green is hard to be seen from a distance.

IWATESAN HOLES(YARDS:BLUE=3,585yards、WHITE=3,278yards)

CourseMap

  • Hole 1
    Recommended to place your dive down the middle of the fairway on this down slope Par 4. Be careful on your approach, you have to avoid the bunker behind the green.
  • Hole 2
    This dog-leg left par 5 is almost flat. Mind OB on left side and try to keep the middle of the fairway on the first shot. The sloped green is a little smaller which requires careful approach.
  • Hole 4
    The hole with complex terrain requires consideration on wind effect. Aiming at the right side of the pine tree on the fairway on the first shot recommended.
  • Hole 8
    Looks easy at a glance but it’s not. The undulating green and bunkers around it await any mistakes. Aim right before the pin for approach.
