Golf in Iceland

Golf in Iceland is an adventure you will remember for a lifetime. Just think of playing a round of golf at midnight during the Midsummer Night, also known as Jónsmessa. Many golf courses in Iceland are surrounded by lava fields, sweeping mountains and provide majestic ocean views and - if you are lucky - some nearby geysers.

Inspiration

Golf in IcelandMidnight golf is available in summer due to Iceland’s northerly location, and one-tenth of Iceland’s surface is adorned with lava. Many Icelandic golf courses follow the contours of the naturally dramatic landscape. In total there are 38 golf clubs on Iceland. The best golf courses on Iceland are: Golfklúbbur Vestmannaeyja (also known as Westman Island), Akureyri Golf Club and Golfklúbburinn Brautarholti. Iceland does not have real golf resorts. Best option is to stay in a hotel in the capital of Iceland, Reykjavik. Iceland is easy to reach via Keflavik International Airport, the main airport in Iceland. Keflavik connects to different travel destinations between Europe and North America. It's also a popular stop-over location.

Keilir Golf
Keilir is located just 20 minutes from downtown Reykjavik in the direction of the Kevlavik international airport. The front nine are totally surrounded by black lava stones. So basically the fairways and greens are bordered by rocky lava formations where you don't want to be with a golfball! The contrast however is beautiful and conservative play is required. Because the …

Golfklúbburinn Brautarholti
Brautarholt is a 12holes (9+3) course, situated just north of Reykjavik, on the coast. The location is magic, holes facing the sea, swirling through a lava field, with seabirds flying over your head. Maintenance of the course is splendid, greens are exceptionally beautiful. Teeing of at the 1st is an experience, the long par 3 5th over the beach magnificent. Short, golf p…

Golfklúbburinn Brautarholti
Just 25 minutes from the city center of Reykjavík, this course has conquered me. WONDERFUL. What a turf! How natural and Brutal to play "at any time" in the Summer. And I specify at any time since it would be possible to play it until 4 in the morning. We finished playing at 10pm, and there were still 4 or 5 hours of light ahead. What beautiful sunsets with the midnight…

Golfklúbburinn Brautarholti
A tan solo 25 minutos del centro de la ciudad de Reykjavík, éste campo me ha conquistado. Qué maravilla. Qué natural. Brutal jugarlo “a cualquier hora” en verano. Y especifico a cualquier hora ya que sería posible jugarlo hasta a las 4 de la mañana. Lo terminamos de jugar a las 10pm, y aun quedaban unas 4 o 5 horas de luz por delante. ¡Qué bonitos atardeceres con el midn…
