A game of midnight golf seems an unlikely prospect to many enthusiasts and few golfers have experienced this delight. But now you have a novel opportunity to participate in an event which features round the clock golf in mid-summer at high latitudes. The Akureyri Golf Club hosts this tournament which is known as The Arctic Open Golf Championship. It is an international event which attracts golfers from various parts of the world. Players do not have to worry about darkness cramping their style because the sun barely dips below the horizon. This championship tournament is open to professional and amateur golfers alike. Played is by Stabelford points. Maximum exact handicap for men is 24 and 28 for women.

Please note, a confirmation of handicap is required.

Prizes are with and without handicap.

The Golfers Handbook of the Royal Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews, states that: "The most northerly course is the Akureyri Golf Club in Iceland which is situated 65 40 north of the Equator."
