Gold Echigo Yuzawa Country Club
And no. I am not a member. Micheal Douglas 1993 blockbuster hit "falling down" was and still is one of my favorite movies. I remember in one scene when he criticized an uppity wealthy white person for building huge and expensive golf courses in the inner cities when he should've been building parks instead. Yet, even in Japan there are numerous gold courses all over the island, and in great locations. Big, extravagant courses with commanding views of mountains and valleys. Quite beautiful actually. Even in Kawabata's snow country , Echigo Yuzawa, there's a huge golf course with some amazing views of the Echizen Mountain range. There is information online available in English on a wide range of golf courses in the central regions of Japan, but I haven't seen any for this area, in one of my favorite hot spa locations. So I decided to post up this info.
