The golf course
GKG golf Iceland is a 27 holes resort just 10 minutes out of Reykjavík centrum and is easily accessable. The Leirdalur is a 18 hole championship golf course played as 6.000 meters long par 71 and is a great test for all level of golfers. The 9 hole golf course which tests players with lakes and bunkers is designed as a 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 golf course is designed by the only Swede (Jan Sederholm) that has designed a golf course in Iceland and was redesigned by an Icelander Andrés Guðmundsson when GKG golf course extended their holes to 27 holes. Himmerland golf corse in Denmark played on the European tour 2014-15 is among courses that Jan Sederholm has designed.
The Leirdalur is one of the most diverse golf courses in Iceland and a great way to experience golf in Iceland. We especially recommend you experience Midnight golf.

„GKG GC is a very enjoyable test for all variety of golfers. The course layout is very diverse, the player will have to use all clubs in the bag. On several holes, accuracy is a must, while on others the player will have more space to work with off the tee. The greens are renowned for their fast and true pace.
Elevated views are to be enjoyed on many of the tees, giving players a good look at what challenge lies ahead. All around, players will revel in stunning views stretching all the way to the sea, and on a clear day, the Snaefellsjokull glacier beyond.“
Ulfar Jonsson, Sports director GKG GC.
