This majestic club was designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 1984.  To become a member, you need a recommendation and a mere 3 million yen.  Luckily, though, non-members are welcome at all times.  Open every day of the year (including holidays), this 7020-yard course (6919 meters) features two extra-length holes of 607 and 591 yards, respectively.  Shortest hole: 184 yards.  Patrons also get to tackle five water hazards, 17 sand traps and three dog’s legs.  Off the fairway, there’s a practice putting area, a full restaurant, a snack bar, a pro shop, pool bar, mahjoong room, hotel rooms, party/banquet facilities, and the planned addition of a driving range.  A few staff members speak English, as well as a few caddies.  To get there, take the Keiyo line from Tokyo station one hour to Kimitsu station, where there’s a shuttle bus at peak hours.  Otherwise, a taxi from the train station will take about half an hour and cost approximately 5000 yen.

Peak season fees: 15,000Y weekdays, 23,000Y weekends (including caddy fee)
