The revival opportunity following the reconstruction from the Hokkaido Eastern Iburi Earthquake
The Hokkaido Eastern Iburi Earthquake occurred on September 6th, 2018. The area where the Tomakomai Gold Resort 72 is located suffered from shakings with a seismic intensity of lower 6 on the seven-point Japanese scale, during which the ceiling of the Clubhouse restaurant collapsed.
"Luckily no one among the staff suffered from any injuries, and the course was left intact, so we resumed operations one week after the earthquake", said the manager Jun Ozawa. It was impossible to use the restaurant, so the emergency response was to use the convention hall for meals.
The golf course renewal project started on this occasion of the reconstruction. In 2019, the 45th anniversary of its opening marks a new page in the resort's history, including the renewal of the Clubhouse.
