GBN REPORTS ON NORWAYS WLG MEMBERS
The acquisition of two of Norway’s most prestigious golf clubs impresses the press
Two of Norway’s most prestigious golf clubs have become the first Scandinavian members to be welcomed into the World of Leading Golf (WLG) causing online magazine golfbusinessnews to post an article on the reasons why especially reflecting the outstanding conditions of both clubs courses and facilities.
Miklagard Golf, a 10-minute drive from Oslo, is generally regarded as Norway’s best course. Its Robert Trent Jones II course is renowned for the speed of its elevated greens and its length. The grass roof of the clubhouse tends to be a talking point for first-time visitors but it is indicative of the unique qualities of all the comforts within.
Stavanger Golfklubb, in the south-west of the country, is the nation’s oldest and, still, one of the best, featuring regularly in the top nation’s top five. The Fred Smith-designed, rather tight 18 holes of Stavanger Golfklubb make their way across the undulating grounds close to Lake Stokkavan, which it abuts. The Stavanger management prides itself on the conditions of the course, and that is borne out by the number of national and international championships to have been played there.
