Staðarsveit Golf Club

The fields of Garðar consist of a 9-hole "Links" golf course in beautiful surroundings. The course is built on windswept sand dunes from the nearby shore so the experience is very "Scottish".

It is situated on the south coast of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, and embraced by spectacular nature. To the north lies a magnificent mountain range, to the south a golden beach and to the west, the majestic Snæfellsjökull in all its glory.

Guesthouse, restaurant and camping site.
