Brautarholt Golf Course

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 2011

Brautarholt Golf Course (Golfklúbbur Brautarholts): this incredibly scenic 12-hole course is laid out on a blissfully natural and rocky peninsula of land. From here you look out to sea and also enjoy views southward to Reykjavik city.

You have the option to play either the 12-hole course, or the first nine holes twice for an 18-hole round, or you can play play 21 holes (the 12 then a loop of nine). Whichever you choose, you can be sure of fabulous sea views, risk-reward reachable par-4s, par-3s ranging from 130 to 245 yards, water dangerously in play on several holes, towering volcanic hills, and as much rocky foreshore as your gaze can feast on.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.

Cullen Links Golf Club: "immensely scenic", "quirky as golf can get", "short!", "hugely enjoyable" ... Cullen Links attracts as wide a variety of comments as it lays down golfing challenges. Shoehorned into this 4,600 yard treasure trove are ten par-3s, seven par-4s and a good-length par-5. Here you'll find all the seaside scenery a golfer could ask for, and a lot more besides.
