The GKG golf club
The GKG golf was established in 1994 and has evolved since to a championship standard course, hosting the 2014 Icelandic championship.
GKG GC is a 27 hole resort just 10 minutes from Reykjavík center and is easily accessible. The Leirdalur is an 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 comfortable walk. The course is not so long, 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 Swede Jan Sederholm, and redesigned 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 with around 1.900 members from all ages. The club has the biggest junior program in the country which we are really proud of where approximately 800 juniors go through our program every year, with around 300 of them 15 years and younger being full members .
With our new indoor golf facility and clubhouse which opened in April 2016 gave us a great opportunity to extend our service for our members and visitors throughout the year. The indoor facility features 9 Trackman simulators as well as a putting and chipping green. We have 5 PGA certified golf teachers and it is possible to book a lesson with them by sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

GKG GC is a must visit for foreign golfers to enjoy on their trip to Iceland to play in the midnight sun.
