The Birth of "Made in Japan , SAKATA".

In the suburbs of Sakata in Yamagata prefecture, on a 500,000 square meters site spread out in the foothills of Chokai Mountain is HONMA GOLF's Sakata Plant. All the HONMA "Made in JAPAN , Sakata" clubs are produced here. While this is one of the largest plants of it’s kind in the world, we believe that the word “Studio”is more fitting than the word “Factory”. Our clubs are carefully handmade one-by-one by our staff of more than 400 skilled craftsmen over a number of different processes. No corners are cut or any job rushed to make our products. The beginnings of producing all HONMA clubs lie in this Sakata Plant.
