GG2In March 2017, small delegation from Yurihama met with a representative from the Japan-Hawaii Ground Golf Association, based in Honolulu (Oahu, HI). The groups discussed the future of ground golf and how to further promote the game, especially internationally. As the home of ground golf, Yurihama was excited to hear that the health, social, and recreational benefits were being enjoyed in Hawaii as well.

Mayor Miyawaki also promoted this year’s Yurihama International Ground Golf Open, to be held October 20-21, 2017, at Yurihama’s dedicated ground golf course Shiokaze no Oka Tomari, as well as the 2021 Kansai World Masters Games.
