Newcomers to Camp Zama are surprised by the outstanding golf course and facilities available on post to all active duty military personnel, DOD civilian personnel, family members of military/civilian personnel and sponsored guests. Since golf is played year round, the Camp Zama Golf Course has a very active participation / tournament program.
The Golf Club (a non-appropriated fund activity) has over 150 annual members. The club features an 18 hole Par 72 course measuring from 4903 yards from the forward tees to 6464 yards from the back tees. It is considered by most golfers to be an extremely challenging course with large undulating greens and water coming into play on 6 holes on the front and 4 holes on the back. A driving range is available about 1 mile from the golf course. The golf course has a club house with full accommodations. These accommodations include a pro-shop, full service restaurant, bar, locker rooms, showers, rental clubs, professional golf instruction, and electric car rentals.
