Mosfellsbaer Golf Club

3-star: Good course – an enjoyable test for your game.

Est. 1980

Mosfellsbæjar Golf Club (Golfklúbbur Mosfellsbæjar): A ten-minute drive northeast from the centre of Reykjavík will bring you to Mosfellsbæjar Golf Club and its 18-hole championship Hlida course (Hlidavöllur). A further nine kilometres inland, the club's charming nine-hole Bakkakot course can be found in the hills of the Mosfell Valley.

The championship Hlida course lies at the edge of Kollafjördur bay, with many holes playing alongside the sea's edge. The relatively generous fairways, routed through jagged rocks of age old lava, lead you towards generally large undulating greens.

Spectacular sea and island vistas are here in abundance. Across the water, looms the snow-capped glacier of Snæfellsjökull, while inland lies Reykjavik's signature mountain, Esja. Immediately to the south is Reykjavik Golf Club's Korpa course.

Did you know?

The Mosfellsbaer Golf Club was created in 2014 as the result of two smaller golf clubs merging. Kjolur GC (dating from 1980) was located on the coast in Mosfellsbaer, while the Bakkakot GC had a nine-hole layout in the hills of the picturesque Mosfell Valley.

The nine-hole Kjolur course was extended in 2008 (and renamed) to become Mosfellsbaer's 18-hole Hlidavöllur layout. The club still retains the nine-hole Bakkakot facility in the valley.

The Masters: The 88th Masters Tournament at Augusta National sees LIV golfer Jon Rahm defend his title against the world’s best. Pressing hard will be world No.1 and 2022 champion Scottie Scheffler and world No.2 Rory McIlroy (April 11-14).

Who's Who

Nelly Korda: records a perfect start to 2024 with four wins out of her last four appearances on the LPGA Tour, a feat last achieved by Lorena Ochoa in 2008. Korda's win at the T-Mobile Match Play brought up her 12th LPGA Tour victory.

Scottie Scheffler: narrowly missed out on matching Nelly Korda’s three-in-three, when he placed second at the Houston Open. This followed back-to-back wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players. Like Korda, he remains comfortably ahead in the official world golf rankings.
