Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club | Course Overview
The Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club opened in 1965 and was designed by Shinya Fujita. The course for this week’s tournament is a Par 70 layout that measures 7,079 yards. It is an unusual layout for a Par 70 in that it has five Par 3’s and three Par 5’s.
Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club features narrow, tree-lined fairways which makes club selection from the tee box an important part of play. Several holes are doglegged requiring an ability to shape the ball both ways. Like many courses in Japan, the host course at was designed with two greens (an ‘A’ & ‘B’ green) to help mitigate against wear-and-tear.
The greens are small by Tour average and have plenty slope and undulation. They are also well protected by bunkers and trees. Putts will be fast and challenging on many of the holes.
The layout demands precision and will reward ball-strikers. There is some elevation change and a variety of approach shots will be required to find the tricky green complexes. This is a week where, on the face of it, accuracy will win over power.
Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club Scorecard
There is no cut at the ZOZO Championship, so an aggressive strategy is required. However, good course management will be at a premium and accuracy off the tee will be key.
Scoring levels this week will ultimately be dictated by how penal the fairway rough will be and more importantly how slick and fast the undulating greens will play.
Players hitting full shots while in tune with distance and accuracy will prosper.
Strike a strategic balance by including both favorites and underdogs in your bets. While favorites offer stability, underdogs can yield substantial returns. A diversified approach ensures resilience in the face of unpredictability.
Expect players in the mix to have a healthy percentage of greens in regulation with first class putting and a low scoring average on the three Par 5s
Golf Betting Tips: ZOZO Championship 2023
Cameron Davis 20/1 (E/W) – second look at Accordia Golf Narashino Country Club for the Australian, finishing T29 last year. His last 6-results on Tour read an eye-catching T10-T7-T6-40-3-T7, putting him 3rd in this week’s Current Form table. No surprise that his rock-solid-form translates to his stats, placing 6th in this week’s Stats Analysis. The 28-year-old is also 17th on Tour for Strokes Gained Off The Tee and 29th for Birdie Average. This week is a good fit to add to his only other victory which came in the Rocket Mortgage Classic back in 2021. The current heater he is on makes him too hard to ignore. Excellent each way value.
