Welcome to Oslo GC
Oslo Golf Club, established 1924, is the oldest golf club in Norway. The first golf shots were hit one autumn day in 1924. Except for the 2nd World War period, when people grew potatoes and other vegetables on the course, we have been playing golf here ever since. Over the years the club has invested in several course upgrades. The original area for golf has been changed and is today one of the most compact golf courses in Norway. As we are the only 18-hole course within the Oslo city limits, keen golfers frequently play our course. + 31.000 rounds every season, which lasts from May to October.
Reconstruction in 2008
After many years of wear and tear the course was worn down, and in 2008 the course was closed for a total reconstruction. Steve Forrest, one of americas best course designers, designed our new course and MS Golf did the work supervised by our own people. With triple drainage, fully automated water irrigation system, sub-air under all greens, sand capped fairways, “sportcrete” in all bunkers, bent grass on greens, tees and fairways, our new course is among Europe’s most technologically advanced, and we believe that the course design will meet both the average golfer’s needs for challenge and at the same time be a tough challenge for the professional golfers for many years to come. The work was done in record time and we reopened Bogstad may 31st 2009. The feedback is unanimously overwhelming, and both members and guests seem to love what we did to the course.
The golf club by Lake Bogstad
The Oslo Golf Club’s course is beautifully situated around the Bogstad Lake. The par 72 championship course, measuring approximately 6300 mtr, is a truly unique design with long par 3s and water coming into play on several holes. The view of the waterfall on the 12th hole right next to the green is quite rare. The players who would prefer a shorter total distance have a great variety of lengths as the course offers tees approximately 4100 mtr 4900 mtr, 5400mtr, 5800 mtr or 6100 mtr. The series of par 3s, 4s and 5s are enjoyable and challenging for all golfing categories.
New Club House
We are building a new club house, at the same location as the old club house. 2 500 square metres including indoor winter training fasilities. The new club house will open in the spring of 2020.
As the building constractor needs space where we used to park, the 2019-season will be one of provisionals. We have rented space at the camping site across the street for parking. There is a VIP-tent with ajoining terrasse functioning as our club house. Our pro has his shop in barracks between 9th green and 10th tee. Storage fasilities for golf bags and electrical trolleys are in containers.
Our facilities includes the 18 hole championship course, one putting green, pitch- and putting area and the driving range. Our restaurant has all serving rights and the kitchen in the VIP-tent is open from 11.30 am to 9:00 pm.
