Sasson Golf Club is a unique destination in Hokkaido, where it serves as a golf course during the summer and transforms into a ski resort during the winter. During your round, you'll come across ski lifts in various spots, which might make you yearn for some skiing even while playing golf. Another peculiar aspect is that this course has a par of 71, featuring one more short hole and one less middle hole compared to the typical setup. Perched on a highland, the golf course offers breathtaking views of Otaru's cityscape below and the distant peaks of Mashike. The play style is quite casual, with a self-play system using navigated carts.
One particularly recommended hole is the 16th middle hole. Exercise caution to avoid going out of bounds to the right during your full swing. The second shot provides the enjoyable experience of a downhill approach, as if hitting the ball into the sea. It's worth noting that the ladies' tees are set quite forward, leading to an increase in women achieving scores below 100.
After your game, you can enjoy exploring Otaru's tourist attractions or take a glimpse of the local market, which adds to the overall enjoyment of the experience.
