Reykjavík Golf Club (Grafarholt course)

3-PLUS: Good course - several memorable features; worthy of 3½ stars.

Est. 1934

Reykjavík Golf Club (Golfklubbur Reykjavíkur): Iceland's oldest golf club is home to the country's oldest 18-hole layout, the Grafarholt course (Grafarkotsvöllur). Located a few kilometres away, the club also operates the newer 27-hole Korpa course (Korpúlfsstadavöllur).

The out-and-back Grafarholt course is generally recognised as Iceland's premier championship venue, having hosted many European and Nordic tournaments. The relatively open layout utilises the rugged and undulating landscape to produce a testing championship course. The generally good-width fairways are lined with lava, and heathery vegetation.

Offering views over the city of Reykjavik, the Grafarholt provides one of Iceland's top golf experiences. The club's facilities also include a first-class clubhouse and a three-tier driving range ... the best such practice facility in the country.

Did you know?

Reykjavík Golf Club was established in 1934, and is the oldest and largest golf club in Iceland. The club was originally called The Golf Club of Iceland but later changed to Reykjavik GC when other golf clubs where established in the country.

Reykjavik GC was first located in Laugardalur, close to where the National Stadium is today. It soon moved to Leynimýri (where the Kringlan shopping centre is), and finally to what was then rather barren land in Grafarholt. Play on the course at Grafarholt started on a few holes in 1963, with a full 18-holes established by 1968.

Published ranking

Grafarholt course:
Iceland's 5th best course (Golf Digest, 2022).
