The North American Post

Last October, Frank Yoshitake, a local Seattle Nikkei (Japanese American), bought a huge tract of land located between Carnation and Fall City in order to spend a vast portion of his fortune making a new golf course. The golf course was recently completed and dubbed Carnation Golf Course. Opening Day festivities were held on May 6 and May 7. All Nikkei golfers will be welcomed by Mr. Yoshitake, who promised to offer as many benefits as possible to bring players to the new golf course.
