Vestlia Golf course – highmountain golf at its best
Vestlia Golf course Geilo has par 34 on 9 holes, one par 5 holes and three par 3 holes. Bunkers, water, heather and birch make the path an exciting challenge. Vestlia Golf Course is approximately 800 meters above sea level – which means that the golf ball will fly up to 10 % longer than it does in the lowlands. We have tried to compensate this with some demanding technical challenges, making the course more appealing to technique than power. The path is pleasant and easy to walk with short distances between the holes.
It is possible to exercise both putting and teeing.
Green fee for this year’s season is NOK 200 for 9 holes and NOK for 18 holes.
Please ask in the reception regarding greenfee. You can reach us by phone 32 08 72 00.
The beautiful scenery in the highlands by Ustedalsfjorden makes a picturesque background for a good game of golf.
Vestlia Golf course is normally open from the end of June until the end of October.
Did you know this about golf?
Wikipedia tells that golf is a club or ball sport in which players use various clubs to hit balls into a series of holes on a course in as few strokes as possible. Golf is either played individually or as a team. The game is defined in the golf rules and regulations as “hitting a ball with a club into a hole by a stroke or several strokes in accordance with the rules”. The modern game of golf originated in Scotland and The Netherlands and has been played for centuries in the British Isles.
Golf was in the Olympic program in 1900 in Paris and in 1904 in St. Louis. It will once again be an Olympic sport during Summer-Olympics in 2016. Historically golf has been considered to be a leisure interest for the higher circles, but during the last decades this has changed and more and more people around the world now play golf. Around 125.000 memberships only in Norwegian golf clubs connected to the Norwegian Golf Association. Membership in a Norwegian golf club is for Norwegian golfers a prerequisite to be able to play in most Norwegian golf courses.
