The course designer, Nils Skjöld used the existing rugged and varied landscape to produce arguably the toughest championship golf course in Iceland. All the fairways are aligned with lava and heather requiring the golfer to use his imagination if he wants to turn in a good score. The course has a par of 71 and measures 6.590 yards (6.026 m) from the back tees. 18 challenging holes with gently undulating fairways requires a golfers full repertoire . The mild climate and the magnificent views over the exciting city of Reykjavik make this a unique golfing experience.
The Korpa golf course is one of the latest 18-hole additions to his golf hungry nation. It opened in 1997 and has already established itself as one of the best golf courses in the country. The course is situated on a land that was used as a cattle farm in the early 1930’s and was the largest of its kind in Scandinavia. There are two distinct nines on the course. The front nine reach down and run along the beautiful coastline of the Atlantic Ocean with stunning views of Reykjavík´s signature mountain, Esja. A brilliant test of links golf is to be enjoyed on the front nine. The massive challenge of the par 4 12th and par 5 15th, both played along the river Korpa await players on the back nine.
