Playing golf in the capital area

Playing golf in Iceland is an adventure you’ll remember for a lifetime. Do you think playing golf at midnight surrounded by lava fields sound too strange to be true? Not in Iceland! Midnight golf is available in summer due to Iceland’s northerly location, and one-tenth of Iceland’s surface is adorned with lava. Sweeping mountains and majestic ocean views characterises Icelandic golf courses, which follow the contours of the naturally dramatic landscape, a popular trend in golf course design today. Their design pays tribute to the first golf courses in Scotland – the home of golf.

The Reykjavík capital area has 10 golf courses both 9 and 18 hole. Many of them have gotten rave reviews from international players such as Brautarholt colf course. It has been named one of the best courses in the world  more than once because of it's beautiful landscape and breathtaking nature by the sea, with a view to Reykjavík city.
