FootGolf Travel - Safe Hands

Going4Travel Ltd and UK FootGolf's Paul Killick have teamed up to provide FootGolf participants with seamless travel packages to overseas tournaments.

Our first package for these sportsmen is to Karuizawa in Japan in October 2017. The FIFG Japan Open is the final "Major" of the year, worth 1000 points to the winner and could be pivotal in deciding the very first FIFG World Tour FootGolf Champion.

Japan is a difficult country to navigate independently, the culture very different to the European ones we recognise, the language is unfathomable and few Japanese speak English outside the main centres.

We have teamed up with experts in the art of travel in Japan so that you, the contestant can concentrate on the sport while we look after all your local travel and other requirements.

This was a sport and travel philosophy taught to me by Sir Clive Woodward and his World Cup winning rugby team fifteen years ago and one which has very much stayed as a part of the philosophy of Going4Travel groups until now. A philosophy we intend to stick to at FootGolf Travel

Your chances of exceeding your FootGolfing expectations increase when the rest of your plans are all working as you expect.

Our intention is to provide an excellent level of service, choice of airlines, hotel and local travel companies. You are not just booking with an online travel provider, there are real travel and FootGolf people at the end of a phone line or e-mail address….24/7.

We choose flights with airlines with excellent back-up if problems do occur, hotels which are best suited to the contestant and add extras where possible, to make your journey seamless as well as a telephone number 24 hours a day to assist you.

For the Japanese competition we have teamed up with a world class airline, Lufthansa, and you will fly via Munich to Haneda airport in Tokyo with comfortable connections both ways.

On arrival in Tokyo, you will be met and taken either by coach or for a small supplement (around £50) you can take the bullet train to Nagano.

Karuizawa is an upmarket mountain resort at the foot of the active volcano Mount Asama in Nagano Prefecture. Located at an altitude of roughly 1000 metres, the town provides a pleasant escape from the summer heat. It was first "discovered" and promoted as a mountain resort by Western residents of Japan in the late 1800s. Today, many wealthy urbanites own a second home there. Thanks to the Hokuriku Shinkansen (bullet train) it takes little more than an hour to reach Karuizawa from central Tokyo.

The Prince Karuizawa hotel is perfect for competitors as it is located right on the golf course. The hotel is sold out for the competition but we have managed to secure twin rooms for our competitors. You cannot buy these rooms anywhere else and by staying at this hotel, you’ll have very easy access to the course.

After the competition and flushed with success, we’ll whisk you back into Tokyo for some sightseeing and a night in the Shinjuku Prince Karuizawa.

The Shinjuku Prince Hotel is a 5-minute walk from Shinjuku Station. Located in the centre of Kabuki-cho, one of Japan’s best entertainment districts, the Shinjuku Prince Hotel offers easy and quick access to the major areas of Tokyo, as well as the best in shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.

The 2nd floor of the hotel is the Seibu Shinjuku Station, and the hotel is a 5-minute walk to the various Shinjuku train stations for JR lines, subways, and private railways. The hotel is conveniently located within 20 minutes of major Tokyo districts such as Ginza, Marunouchi, and Kasumigaseki, so head off to one of those areas for a farewell dinner before we depart back home via Munich with Lufthansa once more.

Price from £2499
