Located just outside the former silver mining town of Kongsberg, next to the Numendal River, Kongsberg Golf Course is a part-parkland, part-woodland design from Jeremy Turner that first opened for play with nine holes in 1998. Within two years, an 18-hole layout was in operation, with more than 70 bunkers spread out across the property.

Today, the course measures just over 6,000 metres in length, playing to a par of 72, and holes are set out as two returning nines, each of which start and finish with a par five hole. Water comes into play at several holes, most notably at the 139-metre 7th and 133-metre 14th, where ponds protect the green on both these par threes.

Feature holes include back-to-back short par fours at the 3rd and 4th; the slightly left doglegging par five 9th, rated stroke index 1; the longest par three on the card at the 189-metre 11th with five greenside bunkers protecting the putting surface; and the 484-metre closing hole which veers slightly left towards the home green in front of the clubhouse.
