I came out to the Shinagawa Golf Center at Oimachi to have a hit of golf. Oimachi is one station down from Shinagawa on the Keihin-tokhoku Line. The range is close to the station and not that expensive. The booth cost 300 yen to hire and then the balls had to be paid for on top. It cost me about 2,000 Yen to hit approx 100 balls.
Normally I go out to Kasai where there is a much bigger (250 yard and about 300 booth) range, but sometimes close is good and the SGC had some laid back charm in a crowded city feel about it. Kasai also normally ends up costing me about YEN 10,000.
You can walk easily from Oimachi Station. It only takes about 4-5 minutes. Some people come by car, and in this photo you can see a few bikes as well.
Where do you normally practice your golf in Japan?
