Miklagard Golf

4-PLUS: Must play course - excellent standard; worthy of 4½ stars.

Est. 2001

Miklagard Golf is home to one of the top championship golf courses in Norway. Here you'll experience a Robert Trent Jones II designed tournament course, capable of thoroughly testing amateurs and professionals alike.

Miklagard's big dimension layout roams across predominantly open and pleasantly undulating parkland terrain. Excellent presentation and plenty of rolling elevation change underpins the modern stadium-style layout. Plenty of length from the tips will test the longest hitters.

An attractive variety of skilfully crafted and challenging holes ensures both a memorable and challenging round, with an attractive collection of straightaway and doglegging holes in the mix. The bunkering is generally deep and plentiful, with another significant test provided by the large, fast and undulating greens.

Stay&Play at Miklagard: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.

Did you know?

Miklagard Golf is located close to the town of Kløfta in Ullensaker municipality, an area with strong historical traditions dating back to the Viking Age. The name Miklagard itself, is taken from the Viking name for Istanbul. When Vikings sailed into the Golden Horn, in what was then called Constantinople, they marvelled at the huge city walls facing them. The city was the largest the Vikings had encountered, and was aptly named Miklagard, "the Great City".

All the holes on Miklagard Golf are named after Norse gods and kings. The signage, buildings and even aspects of the course are also inspired by Norse history.

Published ranking

Norway's 2nd best course (Golf Digest, 2022).

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.
