2014 Japan Open: It Begins Thursday

We would like to wish everyone well as they prepare for this week’s PDGA Major Championship: the 2014 Japan Open. Held in beautiful Nasu Highlands, Tochigi, Japan, the Japan Open remains one of the most prized and coveted experiences on the PDGA Tour by players and spectators alike.

Not only will players enjoy a world-class course set in the mountains of Nasu Shiobara, they will experience the wonders of Japan and the Japanese culture. Tournament Director Kozo Shimbo and Innova President Dave Dunipace are bringing new surprises to this year’s event by transforming the Robert Trent Jones designed ball golf course, into two 18-hole disc golf courses.

In a recent article by PDGA member, Das Loomis, the Japan Open was described like this:

“This is THE disc golf experience. It is the tournament every disc golfer dreams about being a part of. It is the complete immersion of your mental, emotional, and physical being into one complete disc golf fantasy”

Das’ complete article is available online at The Japan Open: Are You Going? We would encourage you take a moment and enjoy the piece, as it delves deeper into the Japan Open’s rich history which dates back to 1985. For additional tournament information please visit:
