Borgarnes Golf Club

The Borgarnes Golf Club is located in the Village of Borgarnes about an hour’s drive from the capital of Reykjavík. The course is not too long, yet narrow and with a lot of trees and water in play, which makes the course very demanding and interesting to play. The Borgarnes golf course is one of two 18 hole golf courses in the western part of the country. The course is renowned for its beautiful surroundings and spectacular view and is considered one of the most beautiful golf courses in Iceland. The Borgarnes Golf Club is the only golf course in Iceland that has both Hotel and Guesthouse facilities on the premises.

The club and golf course

The Borgarnes golf club was founded in Borgarnes on the 21st of January 1973. Initially, the club acquired a small piece of land from the Town Council about 4 km from the Borgarnes village where club members built three golf holes for practice purposes. In 1976 the construction of the first 9 holes was completed. In 1987 the build up of the back 9 holes took place, and in 1998 a total re degsign of the course took place, designed by Mr. Hannes Þorsteinsson, an Icelandic Golf Course architect. The full 18 hole design and construction was finished in 2007.


The Borgarnes Golf Club is located in the village of Borgarnes about one hour drive (74 km) from Reykjavík. The Borgarnes village is on the other side of the Hvalfjörður bay from Reykjavík and the travel takes you through the Hvalfjörður tunnel to Borgarnes. The driving distance from Keflavík airport is about 115 km. When driving in to the village of Borgarnes you take the first turn to the right and from there on,signs will lead your way for around 4 kilometers to the north.
