Bonari Kogen Golf Club

Bonari Kogen Golf Club offers an 18-hole all-bent grass course. This club operates on a membership system. Situated at an altitude of 850 meters and surrounded by the rich nature of Bandai Asahi National Park, the golf course commands a panoramic view of such well-known mountains as Mt. Bandai, Mt. Adatara, and the Azuma Mountain Range. The landscape seen from the teeing ground on the third hole is especially fine, prompting a golf magazine to call it "the most beautiful par-5 course in Japan". At every season, the contrast between the vivid green of the bent grass course and the "borrowed scenery" of the surrounding nature is superb. The course was constructed on the site of a former sulfur mine. The deserted land with neither trees nor grass growing was greened and transformed into a golf course. For this, the course won a Forestry Agency Director General Award in 2004. Such an honor is rare for a golf course.
