Golf balls on the greens replace cow herds in the pastures
After farming for over 44 years, first with his father and later with his son, Bjarni, with his wife, Sigrún, were faced with a choice: retire and quit or…pioneer something new. They sold their livelihood and poured their everything into a bold new idea. They built a golf course, a club house with massage facilities and a jacuzzi and a restaurant on their farm in the beautiful Reykholtsdalur. The restaurant also has excellent facilities for small conferences and meetings for up to 60 people.
Golfers are always looking for new courses to challenge their skills. Iceland is becoming well known as an interesting location to play. The par 70 course is enjoyable for anyone interested in the sport, regardless of their skill level. They have a guesthouse with both made-up beds and sleeping bag accommodation, bathing and cooking facilities. It is open all year for travellers to enjoy each season, providing a lovely place to relax in and enjoy the beautiful nature, with its waterfalls and hills and the rich historical sites of the entire Borgarfjörður area. Close by is Snorrastofa, the medieval culture centre, with its library and museum. Now, less than 2 hours from Reykjavik on road no. 518, is a 9-hole golf course, complete with putting green and driving range for all the world to enjoy, the result of Bjarni and Sigrún’s tenacity and vision.
