Try not to be too alarmed when you hear a drone flying across your head when enjoying a golfing session at Chiba Prefecture’s Camel Golf Resort!

Rakuten Inc, a leading creative Japanese e-commerce company has decided to upgrade its services and launched “Sora Raku”, a drone delivery service for golfers to access golf equipment, snacks, beverages and other items at pickup points on the golf course with just an Android app on their smart phones.

It takes only 3 steps to get your snacks delivered to you by drones on the golf course:

  1. Download and sign in to Rakuten Drone app on your Android phone
  2. Place order and select your desired collection point
  3. Wait for your order at the collection point
