A game of midnight golf seems an unlikely prospect to many enthusiasts and few golfers have experienced this delight. But now you have a novel opportunity to participate in an event which features round the clock golf in mid-summer at high latitudes. The Akureyri Golf Club hosts this tournament which is known as The Arctic Open Golf Championship. It is an international event which attracts golfers from various parts of the world. Highest number of international players so far is 120 participants. We have had players from all four corners of the world which has given us a great pleasure and from the ever increasing number of enquiries, we assume the pleasure to be mutual.

It was in 1986 that we held the first Arctic Open Tournament. Players do not have to worry about darkness cramping their style because the sun barely dips below the horizon.

The northernmost golf course in the world
The Royal Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews golfers Handbook confirms that “The most northerly 18 hole golf course is the Akureyri Golf club in Iceland, which is situated 65 49′ north of the Equator”.

The Akureyri Golf Club was founded in 1935. Over the years, the golf course has grown to become a challenging 18-hole championship course, measuring more than 6,400 yards in length. This unique course is in a natural setting and provides a lovely view of the surrounding countryside.
