Night Golf, Chiba

Before the heat of the summer arrived, I went out for a game of night golf in Chiba with some friends. The course was about 1 hours drive from the center of Tokyo and had excellent lighting for night golf. The cool breezes coming over the hills made it seem a long way from the concrete of Tokyo.

This hole is one of the more challenging ones. Time to hit your tee shot straight here. No escape if you go left or right. Anyone want to take this next shot for me?

Nice open fairway ahead. The lights keep the approach well lit

The valleys are dark, fairways light. Best to stick to the light

A nice turning hole with the lights doing a great job. It almost seems easier to hit the fairway at night with the danger out of your eyesight

Lots of light and greenery looking back to the clubhouse

If you are planning to play some golf in Japan, I recommend you give night golf a go. It can be less crowded then playing in the daytime and a lot more fun as well.
