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.

The Arctic Open is a 36 hole tournament, played under the Stableford point system over 2 days (nights), 18 holes each day.  This championship tournament is open to professional and amateur golfers alike.

The Arctic Open champion will be the participant who has the lowest score with handicap but prizes will also be given for the best scratch score, best ladies score and best Seniors score (age 55+). In the event of a tied score, a sudden death will take place at the 18th hole and repeated until there is a winner. Everyone that has a handicap can play, however the  maximum exact handicap for men is 24 and 28 for women.

A team tournament is run along the game. Participants will randomly be drawn into groups of four. Prizes will be given for the total three lowest scores of every group.
