グラウンドゴルフ国際大会YURIHAMA2019

2019国際GG大会5

Ground golf (GG) is a sport similar to mini-golf or a putting game. It was developed in the town of Yurihama in Japan’s Tottori Prefecture as a lifelong sport that people of all ages and abilities can enjoy. The club and ball used often remind first-time users of the equipment used in croquet, but players use a club to hit the ball into the goal while counting the strokes it takes to do so, just like in golf.

There are 8 holes on a standard course of varying distances. Players set their ball on the tee (which is found on the start mat) and aim for the hole-post, adjusting the power of their swing to the distance and layout of the course. There is no actual hole used in ground golf (allowing players to set up anywhere, including parks), but rather a metal rim that marks the boundary of the goal. The ball must come to a complete rest within that metal rim to hole out.

Players must play the ball as it lands and are not allowed to move obstacles, such as grass or branches, out of the way; however, you do remove your ball from the field to not obstruct the person who goes after you by placing a marker where it was to mark its position. You also get 3 strokes off your final score for each hole-in-one!

2019国際GG大会7

The 2019 Yurihama International Ground Golf Open is being held in order to help foster friendships and exchange between players of all nationalities, to further promote the sport, and in preparation for the World Masters Games to be held in the Kansai region of Japan in 2021.

Participating in the tournament is a great way to meet new people of all different nationalities and to be active and enjoy the game- as well as the incredible view of the sea!

With simple rules and an emphasis on courtesy, it’s a sport anyone can enjoy even if they’re trying it for the first time. There is even a good chance for an upset victory!

2018年国際GG大会 報告

2018.06.04 (Mon)

GG1.PNG

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!
