The Southern Links Golf Course close to Okinawa is a wonderful links-style golf course that takes in the amazing location upon which it was built.
A resort style course the condition is always superb, and the course is a delight to play.
The most spectacular holes both visually and strategically are those that run along the 40-metre-high cliff top. Miss the fairway and you will be saying good bye to your ball as it cascades down the cliff to the Pacific Ocean below.
As you head towards the back nine the mood of the golf course changes from the cliff top holes into a run of holes that are littered with water hazards, creeks and tropical plants that are native to the area and reminiscent of the world famous Japanese bonsai tree.
Sea breezes constantly keep the golfer on their toes as they play on the more exposed cliff tops. And although slightly more sheltered the back 9 is still susceptible to the changing winds.
