A worldwide ground golf tournament will be held in Yurihama
as part of the 2021 Kansai World Masters Games!

 Held once every 4 years following the summer Olympics, the World Masters Games (WMG) is the world’s largest international life-long sports festival for athletes over the age of 30.

Participants are able to register online to compete in any number of sports (participants can sign-up for more than one sport with no try-out!) for the chance to win the gold while making new friends and memories.

Yurihama is excited to be the official venue for the ground golf competition to be held as part of the 2021 World Masters Games, which will be held throughout the Kansai region of Japan.

As even first time players have a good chance of an upset victory, the ground golf games promise to be an interesting affair!

Visit the official website of the organizing committee (see link below) for more information and keep an eye out for when registration is opened (tentatively set for February 2020~February 2021)!

There is still plenty of time before registration, but it’s never too early to start making plans to attend! We hope you will consider taking part in the ground golf tournament and experience more of what Japan has to offer outside of the busy cities!!
