Congratulations to Eiji Wakikawa for his victory on Wednesday 23 June in the annual Japan Society Golf Tournament for the Asprey and Garrard Plate. This year's tournament was held at Essendon Country Club on the par 73 New Course, which opened in 1992 and stretches over 6,700 yards. The New Course was inspired by Japanese design with two greens on 16 of the holes, one suited for summer playing conditions and the other for winter. 

The players enjoyed a wonderful summer day, with perfect golfing weather.
