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.
