About Oslo GolfKlubb
Oldest golf club In NorwayThe Oslo Golf Club is the oldest and highest rated golf course in Oslo. It began as a 9-hole course on the southern shore of Lake Bogstad and has since transformed to the 18-hole championship track golfers know and love today. The course is a regular venue for Ladies European Tour Events, the Norwegian masters, and annually ranks in the Top 10 Best Courses in Norway.
Oslo Golf Club was founded in 1924, and opened for play in the fall of that same year. It is the only 18-hole golf course in Oslo’s city limits.
The course has been in continuous operation since its founding, with the exception of World War II, when the land was used to farm potatoes and in 2008 when the course was closed for reconstruction.
The courses sleepy aesthetic belies its technical advancements. In 2008, the course was retrofitted with thousands of meters of drainage lines, hundreds of catch basins, and all 18 greens were reconstructed with state-of-the-art subair systems.
In addition to technical advancements, the 2008 redesign included changes to the course layout to highlight the courses natural beauty. This was done by changing the position of the greens for holes 7, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 17.
The par 72 championship course, measuring about 6300 mtr, is a truly unique design with long par 3s and water coming into play on several holes. The view of the waterfall on the 12th hole right next to the green is quite rare. The players who would prefer a shorter total distance have a great variety of lengths as the course offers tees approximately 4100 mtr 4900 mtr, 5400mtr, 5800 mtr or 6000 mtr. The series of par 3s, 4s and 5s are enjoyable and challenging for all golfing categories.
