Lofoten Links kåret som verdens 44. beste golfbane utenfor USA


44 [NR] Lofoten Links
Gimsøyand, Norway
Jeremy Turner (2015)
6,687 yards, par 71
Score: 7.733

Perhaps the most remote course in the rankings, Lofoten Links is located, for reference, four degrees latitude north of Iceland on Norway’s Lofoten archipelago that branches deep into the Norwegian Sea. The course is set in an austere but stunning Game of Thrones landscape of rock and ocean, and the bumpy links-like holes are studded with pot bunkers and ramble through fields of stone and cold season native grasses. Lofoten started as a six-hole course in the 1990s and was only expanded to 18 holes in 2015, so it’s a newcomer to global golf travelers—but the prediction here is this might not be the highest ranking it ultimately achieves.
