The club and golf course:

The golf course is in the land of Kidjaberg, which is an ancient settlement, mentioned in “Landnáma” of Ari the wise (1067 – 1148). The work on the golf course was initiated 1989 and the first 9 holes were played for the first time in 1993 and the 18 holes were completed in 2005. On the grounds is also a 5 hole par-3 course. The layout of the golf course is in perfect harmony with the landscape, with the river “Hvíta” (the White River) as dominating feature. It is spectacular to see this great body of water flowing by and on the 14th tee there is no need for “quit please” as the river cascades only few yards away, displaying its colour of white.

Successful playing of the golf course involves careful game plan, where the player with high handicap can take advantage of the moderate length of the course while the low handicap player must find the relatively small greens and at times negotiate the wind, which can have different direction on neighbouring, holes due to the dramatic landscape. Any drive finding fairway is rewarded, while a drive beyond the semi-rough is a formidable test of any player, as the rough nature offers no guarantee of neither good lie nor easy stance.

There is a clubhouse, hosting a restaurant offering hot and cold meals.  The opening hours of the restaurant is from 8:00 o’clock in the morning to 22:00 o´clock in evening. The clubhouse is located by the 18th green, with the 1st and 10th tee on either side.
