Play Golf 160 miles from the Arctic Circle at the Mosfellsbaer Golf Club

The links based course rewards those who keep to the wide fairways, while golfers who meet the rough will need to play through the jagged lava rocks.  The greens are very well maintained, with exceptional views of Faxafloi bay. On a clear day you can see across to the snow-capped glacier of Snæfellsjökull and the great mountain Esja.

Where can we play both a 18-hole championship course and a 9-hole course in Iceland?

Head to the Hlidavollur 18-Hole Championship Course, a ten-minute drive from Reykjavik and overlooking the bay Kollafjörður. Further inland, the Bakkakot 9-hole course is ready to challenge your short game. Both courses are part of the Mosfellsbaer Golf Club.

The second course within the same club is the 9-hole. Bakkakot is a smaller 9-hole course, playing into the hills of a beautiful valley. As everyone knows, trees are a rarity in Iceland, so you’ll be happy to see these tree-lined fairways!

  • There are 65 golf courses in Iceland. 15 are 18 holes and the rest 9 holes
  • The golf season in Iceland runs from late May to early September
  • 24 hour tee times during mid-summer
  • The friendly staff will help you enjoy your da
  • Green fees for the Championship course are 12,500 ISK
