The Arendal & Omegn Golf Club is a real Norwegian golfing success story as the club’s climb to prominence in the national course rankings is all down to the hard work and fund raising efforts of its core membership. Starting out in 1986, the club’s members set to work on building their own course and this took until 1994 to complete.

Today the club boasts a 6,363-yard, par 72, 18-hole track and a 9-hole, par three learner layout. The main course is routed over some rather hilly terrain, involving some blind shots along the way, but this only adds to the pleasure of playing such a nicely balanced course.

The back nine holes are tighter than the front nine, with trees and water hazards coming more into play. It’s no big secret then to understand that playing to handicap at Arendal & Omegn is achieved by scoring well before the turn then holding on to what you’ve made on the way towards the home hole.

Very nice park/forest course outside of Arendal. Front parkland character and back more foresty. Not overly long on the card, however, the course are a bit hilly, and you rarely play your second shot from an even lie, so it plays quite a bit longer. The course was built without the aid of a professional designer, but, whoever had his/hers hands in the design actually did a terrific job, quite a number of good holes. The relatively few bunkers on this course is offset by a few brooks and ponds challenging you, typical is the par 3's, water in play on all, and all quite scenic.Notable holes. 2,4,6,9,12,14 and 18. I really liked the 14th, par 3 at 120 meters. Elevated tee, a small lake to the left of the hole, green fairly lumpy
