The low-fare airline, Iceland Express, is offering up to 20% off green fees at 12 Icelandic courses. All golfers have to do is show their Iceland Express boarding card to get the discount.

The participating courses include the oldest and largest golf club, Reykjavik Golf Club, and the Husatoftavollur Golf Course which straddles two continents covering the American and Eurasian techtonic plates. All courses offer between 10 – 20% discount.

A round of golf on one of Iceland’s courses has been likened to playing on the moon, with vast expanses of volcanic craters surrounding many courses. Then throw in the near 24 hour daylight during the summer months which enables tee-off at midnight and you’ve got one of the strangest golf experiences in the world.

Flights to Reykjavik cost from £78-one way which includes taxes, surcharges, check-in, a 20 kg bag in the hold and 10 kg hand luggage. Iceland Express do not charge extra for flights booked on a debit card.

“Our low-fare flights depart daily from the UK including London Gatwick, London Stansted and Edinburgh giving golfers plenty of opportunity to come and play on our numerous courses, says Heimir Már Pétursson, Iceland Express’ Public Relations Manager.

“Golf is very popular in Icelandand we’re seeing a rise in international golfers visiting our unique island, primarily because of our extended daylight hours and very unusual landscapes. We also have the Iceland Express Golf annual membership which provides excellent benefits for just €35 including free transportation of golf clubs for two flights a year and additional offers from Icelandic golf clubs,” he added.
