hirono golf
C.H. Alison, 1932

Japanese golfers had never seen the kind of deep, strategically placed bunkers that architect C.H. Alison introduced to Hirono in the early 1930s, so bunkers built since became known as “Alisons.” Originally, the course bore a sandy, scrubby appearance, but tree planting changed Hirono’s character over the decades. Thankfully, Martin Ebert’s recent restoration efforts have reestablished sand as a dominant theme. (Photo: David Alexander/Getty Images)
