Diamond Cup Golf (ダイヤモンドカップゴルフ, Daiyamondo kappu gorufu) is an annual golf tournament on the Japan Golf Tour. The tournament is played over late May and early June. Since its founding in 1973, the event has traveled throughout Japan; different courses have hosted the event on all four major islands. In 2014, the purse was ¥150,000,000, with ¥30,000,000 going to the winner. Beginning in 2014, the tournament was co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour, as the Asia-Pacific Panasonic Open had been from 2008 to 2013.
