Iceland boasts over 60 golf courses, with dramatic landscaping you won’t see anywhere else in the world. Golf can be played from May through September, with 24-hour golf available in summer due to the Midnight Sun.
The world’s most northerly 18-hole course in Akureyri, Jadarsvollur, is set in vibrant grasslands and hosts the annual Arctic Open Tournament in June. One of Iceland’s oldest courses was founded in 1938 on the Westman Islands and is considered to be the most stunning course on the island with tee-off against a backdrop of volcanic walls, changing wind directions and steep ocean cliffs.
There are three 18-hole courses found in the greater Reykjavik area with jaw-dropping ocean panoramas. Some of Iceland’s course designs pay tribute to the first golf courses in Scotland while others are designed by famous course architects.
Whether you’re teeing off near an exploding geyser or meandering on a seaside course with black sand beaches, golfing in Iceland is undeniably a one-of-a-kind experience.
