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!

Mayor Miyawaki of Yurihama and Sports Division Director Mr. Konishi of the Tottori Prefectural Government visited the Embassy of India to Japan, the Royal Thai Embassy in Tokyo, the Embassy of New Zealand to Japan, and the Embassy of New Zealand to Japan this past February to promote ground golf, the 2018 Yurihama International Ground Golf Open, and the 2021 Kansai World Masters Games while building new friendships and connections.

Ground golf is a life-long sport that was developed in the former village of Tomari (now part of Yurihama) in Japan’s Tottori Prefecture. Built on the concept of bringing people together and maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle, it was designed to be simple enough for people of all ages to enjoy, regardless of their background or athletic ability.
