Directions to Akureyri Golf Course
Are you a golf lover? If so, you should visit Akureyri, nicknamed „the Capital of North Iceland'. The Akureyri golf course at Jadar is one of the best golf courses in the country and It's the most northerly 18 hole golf course on earth. Picture yourself playing golf in 6.400 yards of graceful trees and magnificent rock outcroppings that are tactically used as tee sites, while enjoying the splendid view of the surrounding countryside. It doesn't sound too bad, does it?
The Akureyri Golf Club was established in 1935, which makes it Iceland's second oldest golf club. After travelling around for many years, the club finally settled down in it's current home at the Jadar farm in 1970. The club is currently undergoing a renovation to ensure that the Akureyri Golf Course maintains it's status as one of the best golf courses in Iceland for years to come.
The Akureyri Golf Club will be hosting the annual Artic Open golf tournament this years as always, during the summer solstice when the skies are bright all through the night. Golfers from all over the world have gathered at this event for the last twenty years to play at least a few organized rounds of golf while watching the breathtaking sunset, and this year will be no exception. For further information on the Artic Open you can visit the official website, www.articopen.is.
The Akureyri Golf course is the perfect place for a golf enthusiast to play it's favorite sport in the unique and breathtaking environment that only Akureyri can offer.
