The Arctic Open

The Arctic Open Golf Championship is an international event which draws golfers - both amateur and professional - and spectators from various parts of the world. Apart from the magnificent natural scenery surrounding the Akureyri Golf Club, the chief attraction of the tournament is the prospect of teeing off at 10pm thanks to the near-perpetual sunlight of the Icelandic summer. The venue has the distinction of being the northernmost golf course in the world, as recognised by the Royal Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews Golfer's Handbook.

Venue: Akureyri Golf Club; Date: 24 - 27 June 2020; Website:
