The course at Golfklúbbur Öndverðarness dates back to 1974, when a number of like-minded freemasons from Reykjavik decided to form their own golf club. Today, the layout extends to 5,366 metres from the back tees, playing to a par of 71.

The outward half consists of all the holes from the original 9-hole layout, with the inward half comprised of holes added in 2010. The course was mainly built by members who volunteered to work for nothing and the club continues to change and improve the facilities on an ongoing basis.

Highlight holes include the first of the five par threes on the card at the 122-metre 2nd, where three sides of the green are bounded by a low stone dyke that once marked the perimeter of an old vegetable garden. The par five 16th on the back nine is considered the strongest hole and a tough nut to crack.
