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.

Ground Golf 。★。 グラウンド・ゴルフ

グラウンド・ゴルフ

Ground golf was invented in 1982 by the former village of Tomari’s (now part of Yurihama) Board of Education as a part of an initiative to promote lifelong sports. As it doesn’t require a high level of skill and the rules are extremely simple, anyone can quickly catch on and take part. Yurihama’s Birthplace of Ground Golf Open is held each year at Shiokaze no Oka Tomari, which is filled with many participants from all across Japan.

1982(昭和57)年に生涯スポーツ活動推進事業の一環として、旧泊村教育委員会が中心になり考案されました。高度な技術を必要とせず、ルールもごく簡単なことから、誰でもすぐに取り組めます。毎年「発祥地大会」を潮風の丘とまりで開催、全国各地から、大勢の参加者でにぎわいます。
