Australia is often overlooked and some would say forgotten when it comes to golf. Perhaps it’s the relative isolation from the mainstays of the European and PGA Tours. Perhaps it is just a lesser known quantity or just a bit too far to travel for a short golf trip. What I can assure you is…
It’s no secret that Georgia is full of golf history. People beginning to utter the words “The Masters” shortly after spring turns the corner, is enough to make the hair stand on the back of your neck. Being host to a plethora of professional and amateur events always give people reasons to flock from near…
This week, we continue our “golf course spotting journey around the World” series and head out to Nova Scotia, described in the popular folk song Farewell to Nova Scotia as the ’The Sea-Bound Coast” which is appropriate as there is nowhere in Nova Scotia that is more than 67km away from the ocean. This lends itself to an amazing environment for…

To inspire you on your quest for new destinations, we asked our users around the world to share their bucket list of “must play” golf courses in their neighborhood. The list was truly inspiring, so we decided to make an entire series out of it. So without further due, here’s this week’s destination:
Iceland may not be your first choice when it comes to golfing destinations, but we’ve been fortunate enough to discover some hidden gems amongst this land filled with geysers. We sincerely hope an Islandic player makes it to the European Ryder Cup team in 2018, as their Famous Chant would make that 1st tee experience at Le Golf National truly memorable.
The 9 hole course at Brautarholt is basically an embodiment of what Iceland has to offer to it’s golfing visitors. The Par 5 1st strolls along the shoreline with some breathtaking views and a truly picturesque scenery behind the green. Depending on the direction of the wind, the par 3 4th will likely force to either make friends with the water or the volcanic rock separating you from the green. The 9th hole will guide you back to the clubhouse and if you’re lucky, you might have a friend greeting you on the final green.
Keilir has always been highly ranked in overall golf course rankings and there’s a clear reason for it. The front 9 holes were built over lava fields “Kapelluhraun”, with perfectly cut fairways that undulate amongst the beautiful volcanic rock. Whilst the scenery surrounding the fairways may look enticing, it’s wickedly treacherous. Trying to hit a wedge shot out from volcanic rock is probably not a great idea.
Mosfellsbaer is another fantastic golf course that provides a whole suite of challenges for every golfer out there. Depending on the year, in addition to lava rock waiting for you outside the fairways, you’ll also likely have to battle it out with some truly angry birds. Apparently your golf umbrella can serve the purpose of saving you a few shots (as well as your eyesight) if you ever end up astray from the fairways.
The course has a spectacular view to the Capital Reykjavik and the mountains Esja and Akrafjall. This golf course is a challenge for all golfers at any level of handicap. The par 3 hole “Bergvik” is the most famous golf hole in Iceland whereas the ball has to fly from the back tee nearly 200 m over the sea to land on the green. We’d say it’s probably a crisp 7-iron for most 😉
Reykjavík Golf Club was established in 1934 and is the oldest and largest golf club in Iceland. It offers two exceptional 18-hole courses; one at Grafarholt and the other at Korpa. Both courses have fantastic layouts and offer spectacular views of Reykjavik and the surrounding area.
The Grafarholt golf course opened in 1963, which makes it the oldest 18-hole golf course in Iceland. The course is recognized as Iceland´s premier championship venue and has hosted many European and Nordic tournaments.
So what are you waiting for?
It’s time to fill out your bucket list on Golf GameBook and start planning your next golf adventure!
