At EastWood Country Club, we strive to provide golfers of all levels an opportunity to stretch their skills and relax on our tranquil course. Opened on October 4, 1995, the course in Tochigi Prefecture was designed by renowned architect Robert Trent Jones, Jr., who took full advantage of the lush natural landscape surrounding the club to make the fairways and greens a delight for the senses. Complete with hills and ponds, each of the 18 holes will challenge your skills and provide a grand day on the links. Golfers of all levels can enjoy the harmonious blending of function with nature that makes EastWood Country Club so special. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Since 2018, EastWood Country Club has been home to the Jarman International Charity Cup, sponsored by inbound tourism consultants Jarman International KK. The monthly tournament raises funds for Mirai no Mori, a non-profit orga­nization that creates fun, educational outdoor programs for deserving youth throughout Japan. We invite a growing list of beginner-to-advanced golfers living in Japan, as well as those here on visits, who want to grow their Japan network via this welcoming event. Please contact us if you would like to be added to the list.

During Japan’s effort to quell Covid-19, the government requests that in-person interactions be reduced by 80 percent. For this reason, we won’t be holding the usual Charity Cup—with lots of players—for the time being. As of April, we’ve added a “virtual” aspect. This allows small groups and indi­vidual players to enjoy the thrill of friendly competition while maintaining social distance. Please visit to join in the cup and maybe win the Jarman Trophy and monthly prize of ¥100,000!
