Reykjavík Golf Club (Korpa course)

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

Est. 1934

Reykjavík Golf Club (Golfklubbur Reykjavíkur): The Club's much newer Korpa course (Korpúlfsstadavöllur), as distinct from the original Grafarholt course (Grafarkotsvöllur), is a relative newcomer to the golfing scene in Iceland.

Comprising 27-holes, the Korpa layout embraces three contrasting nine-hole loops: Sea, River and Land. If you are limited to playing just 18 holes, then the Sea-River combination will give you the best of the scenery and the most variety.

The front-nine quickly gets you alongside a black-sand beach and the water's edge, after playing past the neighbouring Mosfellsbaejar Golf Club at the par-4 3rd. The par-4 4th through to the par-4 8th provides a shore-hugging sequence of holes, and some wonderful views onto inshore islands and out to the Atlantic Ocean. Reykjavik's signature mountain, Esja, is also in view.

On the back-nine there are also many challenges that await players, with several holes playing along the River Korpa, which meanders through this nine. The par-5 11th and 15th holes both play around pronounced doglegs, maximising the river's threat.

Did you know?

In the mid 1990's, Reykjavik Golf Club's original Grafarholt course (which dated from 1934) could no longer handle the burgeoning demand for golf in and around Iceland's capital city. The Club decided to build a new 18-hole golf course at Kopulfsstadir in 1993, where there had been a small 12-hole course.

Tournaments

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).

Chevron Championship: the women’s major championship season gets underway for the second year at its new Carlton Woods home outside Houston, Texas. World No.2 Lilia Vu defends (April 18-21).

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.

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club

Marco Simone Golf & Country Club: With a clubhouse that might befit a Roman Emperor, and a golf course to match, you can be sure of a memorable outing at Rome's most talked about golf facility.

Jim Fazio's original layout was much changed to create a modern Ryder Cup course ... now one of the Eternal City's (and Italy's) most revered.
