Stavanger Golf Club was founded in 1956 and is one of Norway’s oldest clubs. The 18-hole course is situated 5 km from the town center, and lies in quiet surroundings near the lake «Store Stokkavann».
The course, designed by British architect Fred Smith has a par of 71. It is a tree lined, and relatively tight layout. Small greens and undulating fairways add to the challenge, and many championships have been held here, both national and international. Stavanger hosted the Norwegian Championships in August 2006.
