Stavanger Golf Club was founded in 1956 and is one of Norway’s oldest clubs. The 18-hole course is situated 5 km from the town center, and lies in quiet surroundings near the lake «Store Stokkavann».
The course, designed by British architect Fred Smith has a par of 71. It is a tree lined, and relatively tight layout. Small greens and undulating fairways add to the challenge, and many championships have been held here, both national and international. Stavanger hosted the Norwegian Championships in August 2006.
The course has a very good driving range which is open to visitors, and also a nice putting green and other short play areas. Stavanger Proshop has 3 PGA certified professionals which are at your disposal every day. The club also has a nice cafe, which also has newly built bar in the old clubhouse.
