I have just finished uploading pictures (all 700 of them) from my recent business trip to Japan and felt a quick blog post was in order. In fact I promise to write a number of posts over the coming days and months given how much I have to talk about.
I am working with a prestigious golf club near Fukuoka called Keya GC – looking at ways to improve the golf course. Keya was designed by legendary Japanese Golf Architect Shiro Akaboshi over 50 years ago and as part of the trip the client (and I) felt it would be worthwhile visiting other courses designed by the same architect. Add to that getting out and visiting a variety of golf courses would give me a better feel for golf in Japan which is important.
As a start I thought I would write about the overall golf experience in Japan because in so many ways it’s unique, fun, memorable, interesting and all the rest. I suppose If you are going to spend 4 – 5 hours playing golf then you might as well make it a great event / great experience….. as is the case in Japan.
Let me describe this experience using photos:
