A ten-minute drive northeast from Reykjavík is the picturesque suburb of Mosfellsbær, and its amazingly situated golf club. Golfklúbbur Mosfellsbæjar has two courses: The championship 18-hole layout is called Hlíðavöllur, laying at the edge of the bay Kollafjörður, and a quaint 9-hole course in the hills of the Mosfell Valley, named Bakkakot.

The Hlíðavöllur course is truly a feast for the eyes. The very first impression is the stunning views and great food in the modern clubhouse. Perfectly visible on clear days over the water looms the snow-capped glacier of Snæfellsjökull and the great mountain Esja.
