The ground golf open kicked off the next day with an opening ceremony, with remarks from the event chairman and mayor of Yurihama, Mr. Masamichi Miyawaki, and head of the Japan Ground Golf Association, Mr. Kazuo Sonoyama. During their breaks in-between rounds, players were also able to enjoy a free matcha green tea service, tonjiru soup (made with pork and vegetables), and the beautiful view from atop the hill.

Gameplay was followed by a small forum where representatives from Korea, China, Taiwan, France, Spain, Poland, and Mongolia met to discuss the creation of an international organization, issues regarding access to equipment across the globe, and upcoming tournaments and events.

For the first time this year, the tournament was held across two days, with participants completing 4 courses (8 holes each).
