The Course

Course Overview

Arnold Palmer designed Aomori Spring’s 18-hole golf course to strategically challenge golfers of all abilities, from championship golfers to amateurs.

From long 5-par holes to more technical doglegs with two-tier greens and many scattered ponds and bunkers throughout, this course can be as technically challenging as you like.
