Type of course? Links as it’s right by the sea, but not really according to this definition. Too much lava, not enough sand.
Pleasant staff? Very lovely and chatty, in perfect English of course.
Best hole? The 10th looked really tricky, with a ditch and cliffs to negotiate in order to reach the green.
Après golf? Excellent fish and chips and burger from the gorgeous, modern clubhouse overlooking the course and the North Atlantic Ocean.
Nice round? Time to come clean: we didn’t play. We just popped in because we couldn’t help ourselves. But the course looked great, in a sublime location.
Special memory? Chatting to the lovely young woman behind the bar and marvelling at the fact that a group of women plays every night at 10pm at this time of year. But then I guess that as the course is only open from May to September, Icelandic golfers need to make the most of the sun when it’s out.
Must play again? Golf in Iceland is a high-risk strategy because of the crazy weather, but there are five courses within easy reach of Reykjavík, so a golfing holiday wouldn’t be out of the question if I ever won the lottery. How amazing would it be to play golf at midnight in stupendous surroundings?
