県内のゴルフ場を紹介するサイト「ゴルフ・シズオカ」を運営するベネットさん=御殿場市神山
御殿場市内でゴルフインストラクターを務めるカナダ出身のベネット・ジョン・ギャロウェイさん(44)が、県内のゴルフ場を紹介するインターネットホームページを開設した。英語のサイトは珍しく、海外からのアクセスも増えているという。ベネットさんは「静岡は富士山があり、ゴルフ施設のレベルも高い。空港の開港が予定される中、多くの外国人に観光資源を知ってもらう機会になれば」と話している。


ベネットさんは地元カナダでゴルフやスノーボードに親しみ、ホテルリゾートのマネジャーに。1991年、岩手県安比高原のリゾートの交換社員研修生として来日。各地のゴルフリゾートで学んだ後、御殿場ゴルフ倶楽部(御殿場市)のティーチングプロとなり、現在は同市東山に暮らしている。

「日本にはゴルフコースが 2500 カ所以上ある。各国の関係者やビジネスマンも訪れるのに、英語の情報発信がほとんどなかった」とベネットさん。外国人旅行者向けアウトドア情報誌のサイト「ゴルフ・イン・ジャパン」を知人と手掛け、昨年には県内の91カ所を網羅した「ゴルフ・シズオカ」をオープンした。

Getting Stoked-up for Winter Golf

Summer heat has left us and the leaves have all but fallen. Most of you are probably starting to think about retiring your clubs for the season and focusing on winter sports like skiing and boarding. For some of us it's not that easy to turn off the game, and the desire to tee it up lasts all year! In this feature we will explore the options available for the year round golfer as well as helpful tips for your winter game. 

I have been a snowboard instructor and regular member of the Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors for over eighteen years.
