The course is diverse since the front nine was designed in 1973 and the back nine in 2008. To post a good score on Ondverdarnes golf course the key is to stay on the fairway on the front nine and keep your driver in the bag for the most part.

Our favorite hole at Ondverdarnes golf course: The second hole at Ondverdarnes golf course is a short par 3 hole (122 meters from yellow tees). What makes the hole special is that the green is well guarded by rocks as you can see in the video down below. If your shot is not precise you may expect your ball to be thrown a long way into moss but if you are lucky the ball will end up on the green. Before Ondverdarnes golf course was founded, the green used to be an old vegetable garden.
