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!!

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!
