This year, the golf club celebrates 42 years of establishing itself as one of the finest clubs in the region with an 18 hole and a nine-hole course. When kicking off last month, it was one of the first in the area to open for the season – and it will be one of the last to close too. “Ours are known for being fun and challenging courses, where you may very well end up playing your way across forest ponds,” says managing director Bjørn Lohne. While the two impeccable courses are the focal points, the thing that really sets Kjekstad Golf Club apart is the surroundings. Located in the middle of the forest, the courses are integrated into the original scenery with trees, lakes and hills.
