I have been living in Okinawa for the past 4 years and started playing golf when I got out here. I have been hooked ever since. The equipment out here is very attractive and the clubs feel just as good as they look. I have picked up a set of the 2015 OnOff Kuro forged irons, a progressive set of the Tourstage 709 Limited X-Blades, a set of Cold Forged wedges, and an Arc1 putter (believe these are sold only in Japan still). Can't think of a better place to be for a golfer.
How are the greens fees, as compared to outside Japan?
I have not played a round in the states but I am sure they are pricier. Luckily, there a three military courses here (one is a par 3 course) that have good deals and prices. The courses are not pristine but they are well maintained for the most part and the views are incredible. There are probably about 20 courses to play on the island and they range anywhere from about 50$ up to about 200$. Carts are mandatory most places and they fit 4 people. But, you get to play all year round unless we get unlucky with typhoons.
It is also very easy to find cheap flights to Thailand, the Philippines, Bali, and other places that have great, cheap golf.
