CCCJ Golf Scramble 2017

The CCCJ's 16th Annual Golf tournament brought together 51 ethusiastic golfers from Tokyo's business community this year at Tsutsujigaoka Country Club. A day of perfect weather, with blue skies and just enoguh sun, we enjoyed a full day of golf and beer before finishing off with an award dinnner party on the terrace.
