A Celebrity Yankee in Diplomat Abe's Court
The Kasumigaseki Country Club, founded in 1929, is the birthplace of Japan's golf craze. the center of controversy for a long time. the club’s policies toward women, 2020 Olympics organizers threatened to move to a different venue unless the rules were changed. The club ultimately ceded to pressure in March and now allows women to be full members (and not just ‘regular members’). no “single round” green fees. It is available for dues paying members only! ($1,000 a month, anyone?) Japan is trying to break the traditional male-dominated elitism of the bubble days and usher in a new era of growth. We’re talking about golf.
