2018年国際GG大会 報告

2018.06.04 (Mon)


The 2018 Yurihama International Ground Golf Open was held May 19-20 at Yurihama’s dedicated ground golf course, Shiokaze no Oka Tomari (Tomari Sea Breeze Hill).

This year’s event kicked off once again with a welcome reception at the Suimeiso Hotel, featuring a special performance by one of Yurihama’s local hula groups, Lokahi Ka Makana.

The weather was unfortunately a bit overcast for the first day of the tournament, but nearly 240 players from across 8 countries were able to enjoy ground golf while building new friendships and connections, despite their diverse backgrounds, nationalities, and cultures.

Participants were also able to enjoy a small taste of Japanese culture through complimentary local tonjiru (miso soup with pork and vegetables) as well as a matcha green tea service.

Ground golf is a fun and easy sport suited for fostering friendships between players and promoting a healthy and active lifestyle for people of all ages and fitness levels. With simple rules, even beginners can catch on quickly and fully enjoy the game.

We hope you will be able to join us next May for the 2019 Yurihama International Ground Golf Open or for the ground golf competition held at Yurihama’s Shiokaze no Oka Tomari as part of the 2020 Kansai World Masters Games!

GG Open Flyer

Ground golf is like a mix between croquet and mini-golf, making it a fantastic way to mingle with friends and new acquaintances while you get some fresh air and exercise. It is simple enough that beginners can quickly catch on, but still challenging enough to whip up your competitive spirit!

For those new to Tottori, this is a great way to get to know the area and to make new friends! There are shuttle buses available from Tottori Station, Yonago Station, and in front of TPIEF’s Kurayoshi office, so there is no need to worry about transportation! However, if you drive, there is also parking available at the venue.

 It is only 1000 yen to attend (includes lunch and souvenirs) and free rental gear is available! There is also time to practice and learn the rules before the start of the tournament.

風車 ・ Wind Turbine

2015.09.16 (Wed)


Built in November 2002, Yurihama’s wind turbine was Tottori Prefecture’s first full-fledged operational wind power generator. Rising above Shiokaze no Oka Tomari and its ground golf course, the wind turbine has become a symbol for public awareness surrounding environmental issues and natural energy. It reaches a height of 60 meters, with the propellers spanning a diameter of 45m and the tower itself standing 37 meters tall.
