Lofoten Links Showcase: Why the Course is a top Golf Destination

How many golf courses in the world can claim to offer a full 24 hours of play time? Well, at the spectacular 18-hole Lofoten Links course on Norway’s northern island of Gimsøya, you can play golf in 24 hours of light between June and July during the Midnight Sun.

Navigate the challenging but rewarding course where the ocean features as a water hazard on several holes and natural sandy-beach bunkers are found on the rest. Its signature hole appears early at the 140-metre 2nd, where a two-tiered green sits atop a rocky outcrop, fronted by a solitary pot bunker. Its longest and toughest par four on the course is found on the back nine with a 430-metre 16th. Swing through its blind tee shot from the back markers with the hole played downhill between a narrowing fairway.

Lofoten Links recently ranked as the best golf course in Scandinavia and the 6th best in continental Europe by Golf World’s Top 100 Courses list of 2022. Plus, if you stay at Lofoten Links you can sign up to receive a notification on your phone when the Northern Lights are out.
