Our aim is to provide higher-level, more polished services that will maximize our customers' satisfaction. We are expanding our field of activities from golf courses to personal devices, and our target customers from golfers to non-golfers.
We aim to provide Japan's most searchable tee time booking service, with a wealth of user reviews and robust search capabilities.
We sell golf products from about 390 makers in Japan and abroad, with warehouses operating 364 days a year (excluding New Year's Day) and same-day delivery on orders placed by 14:00. We also offer a range of unique services, including TRYSHOT--a subscription-style service allowing users to try out new clubs--and trade-in discounts for selling used clubs.
Golf news you can trust from on-the-scene reporters at domestic and international events. Club performance comparisons and lessons to up your game. The web magazine "BRUDER."

Advancements in golf ranges have given rise to a new class of golfers who get their golf enjoyment off the course. Our ranges offer every off-course golfer--young and old, individuals and groups--the fun of hitting balls.
GDO Chigasaki Golf Links is a 9-hole public course featuring refreshing ocean breezes and stunning views of Mt. Fuji. It preserves the charm of Osamu Ueda's original design while offering an uncommonly casual golf experience for Japan, with no dress code, push carts instead of motorized carts, and a bring-your-own-bottle rule to reduce plastic waste.
