Reykjavik Golf Club was founded in 1934 but the Grafarholt course only opened for play in 1963 and was designed by a Swede, Niels Skjold. Presumably the club moved to its present location in the early 1960s but we’re not entirely sure what happened. If you can throw any light on the subject, please let us know.

Reykjavik is the oldest golf club in Iceland and it's located some 10km east of Reykjavik. The 18-hole Grafarholt course measures a respectable 6,522 yards and this is currently the premier course in the country. But because it lies 100 metres above sea level, the greens take a pounding from the inhospitable Arctic elements, so members of the Reykjavik Golf Club often have to wait until late summer to find the course at its best.

Views from the Grafarholt are spectacular and in clear weather the Snaefellsjokull glacier, 200km to the north, can be seen. Grafarholt has hosted many championships including the Scandinavian Senior Open. The clubhouse was renovated in 2004 and it is one of the best 19th holes in Iceland.
