Our favorite hole at Keilir golf course: 15th hole – a hole that is going to give you the chills when you step on the tee box. With bunkers covering the left side and the ocean on the right, you have a narrow window to hit the undulating green. It is one of the most difficult holes in Icelandic golf and par is going to be a very good score.
