Both the men’s and women’s Olympic competitions were held at Kasumigaseki Country Club in Kasahata, Saitama, Japan, about 35 miles northwest of downtown Tokyo.
Kasumigaseki Country Club is a 36 hole golf club surrounded by the rich, green forest of the Musashino Hills.
The private golf club opened on October 6, 1929. It was the first golf course in Saitama.
Kasumigaseki Country Club hosted the Canada Cup in 1957, the Japan Open Golf Championship in 1933, 1956, 1995, and 2006, as well as the Asian Amateur Championship in 2010.
The East Course was redesigned by Tom and Logan Fazio in October 2016. It successfully retains the classic look and feel of the previous remodelling work by C.H. Alison.
The West Course was designed by Seiichi Inoue. In spite of its elegant look, the course presents a challenge in that many holes require accurate shots from the tee. Lakes and creeks on the back 9 provide additional beauty while challenging the player to hit dead on.
