The GKG golf club
The GKG golf was established in 1994 and has built up since with extraordinary volunteers work through the years.
GKG GC is a 27 holes resort just 10 minutes out of Reykjavík centrum and is easily accessible. The Leirdalur is a 18 hole championship course played as 6.000 meters long par 71 and is a great test for all level of golfers. The 9 hole course which tests players with lakes and bunkers is designed for an easy walk and not so long course (around 2.400 m from back tees), so offers great fun and is ideal for a quick and fun 9 hole round.
GKG GC is designed by the only Swede (Jan Sederholm) that has designed a golf course in Iceland and was redesigned by an Icelander when GKG GC extended their holes to 27 holes. Himmerland GC in Denmark played on the European tour 2014-15 is among courses that Jan Sederholm has designed.
GKG GC is a family club and welcomes juniors to enjoy their facilities in their best manner.
GKG GC has around 1.900 members.
GKG GC has the biggest junior program in the country which we are really proud of and approximately 800 juniors go through our program every year and we have around 400 members 15 years and younger.
With our new indoor sport hall and clubhouse opening in march 2016 will give us great opportunity to extend our service for our members and visitors through the full season. The sport hall will feature a 4 Trackman simulators and optional 3 more in the near future, as well as a putting and chipping green. We have 4 PGA certified golf teachers and it is possible to book a lesson with them by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org That will change our golf club from 6 months business to a full season operation.
GKG GC has astonishing views over Reykjavik capital, Atlantic ocean, glacier and mountains which make’s the midnight sun glimmer as it best over the glacier Snæfellsjökull made famous in Jules Verne’s book Journey to the Center of the Earth..
GKG GC among other courses in Iceland is a must visit for foreign golfers to enjoy on their trip to Iceland and playing in the midnight sun with great views.
