I have been on two absolutely outstanding golf tours with Elite Sports which were conducted, like a composer, by Paul Sheehan. Paul won the Japan Open and various other tournaments in Japan and as a result became entitled to invitations to play some events on the USPGA Tour.
He is treated with legendary golfer status when visiting golf clubs of the highest ilk in Japan. All courses are accessible to Paul and Elite Sports. Courses in Japan are of an excellent standard and guarantee a great golfing experience. I am able to compare against courses throughout the world and rate golf in Japan as competitive to most destinations.
Paul enabled me to complete the Top 100 Courses in the World 2003 list by gaining access to courses including: Tokyo GC, Hakone GC, Naruo GC and Kawana GC. We also played some great courses at the foot of the dramatic Mt Fuji.
The great benefits of golfing in Japan include: similar time zone to Australia, relatively short overnight flight, great dining experiences with outstanding food and of course, great golf and camaraderie with caddies and polite Japanese culture.
I look forward to my next golf tour to Japan, this time to Hokkaido with Elite Sports and Paul Sheehan who has impeccable contacts and knowledge of a great place to play golf and dine. It is also a unique pleasure to play a round with Paul.
