Comments:Re-opened and re-branded on March 1, 2010 Taiyo Golf Club (formerly Awase Meadows Golf Course) , with Taiyo being derived from the Japanese kanji, for sun, has a number of meanings, but the literal translation is Golf Club of the Sun.Taiyo is an apt name for this new property, as it serves to honor our host country while acknowledging the abundant sunshine that bathes this subtropical island. The club logo features a stylized hibiscus flower and evokes the Okinawa Prefectural symbol, confirming yet again our commitment to proudly and selflessly serve those who serve in Okinawa.

Taiyo Golf Club is located in Uruma City near the Kurashiki Dam in central Okinawa, just minutes from Camp Courtney and only 20 minutes from Camp Foster via the Okinawa Expressway (or 40 minutes by surface street).

Relaxing golf awaits on this visually stunning 18-hole layout that unfolds across 247 acres of rolling fairways, lush wetlands, scenic vistas, dramatic elevation changes, and large, well-manicured greens with subtle breaks. It is a feast for the eyes and a challenge for golfers of all skill levels from either of three sets of tees. Note this is a USMC course so if you are SOFA-sponsored it is excellent value for money!!

Great place to play golf. If you're looking for a nice challenging round that will be a true test of your game, then this is the course for you. This is not Awase Meadows. Its a brand new course that opened about a year ago. The service was outstanding. Everyone was very helpful and friendly. I've played golf all around the world and this course was just a joy to play. I'm looking forward to returning in the near future.

You have it listed as US Army course; it is USMC. If sofa-sponsored it is excellent value for money as it is about $15 including cart. Non-sofa it is poor value for money. Often undergoing maintenance so temporary tee grounds or greens. Crowded with U

The rought grass should be cut down to let the ball roll down. This will let golfers the game and not splending lot of money to buy golf balls.

This is a young course and as such greens do not hold. Holes tend to be similar to each other and overall not very interesting, although with exceptions. All staff very friendly.
