    オーソドックスだが難しいコースとその手入れ、歴史、格式とも北海道随一のゴルフ場。トーナメント後のラフの深さでボール見失うこともしばしば。しかし、輪厚ルールというのがあり探しても見つからないときはあると思われる場所から代打できる。値段は高いがプレイする価値あり。レストランの輪厚ラーメンも美味い。

    最高に天気の良い日☀を狙って→滑りました…スノーボーダーです。 函館周辺の大きなスキー場ですね。ただ大き過ぎないから、地図の函館〜札幌方面からの来客も多過ぎず(ニセコへ行くことになるためか?)にローカル感があり、ほっこりします。 山頂から駒ケ岳、大沼公園へ向かって滑り始めるのでテンションも上がります。 コース幅も広く、斜度も適度にあるので、ファミリー〜みんな楽しめるスキー場だと思いました。

Hokkaido Areas

around-area-map

Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
