LOFTEN LINKS DEBUT RANKING ON GOLF MAGAZINE’S WORLD TOP 100!! + A Letter Of Gratitude

 

 

 

And then it happened.

 

After decades of perseverance, hard work, and passion our team has poured into making our golf course exceptional, Lofoten Links has finally achieved this most prestigious ranking by Golf Magazine.

We are debuting at #88 – an incredible honour and milestone.

 

Now let me break the journey down for you, and offer some perspective on how far we’ve come.

 

 

1991: An idea to create a world-class golf course was born.

1998: The first 6-hole version of the course was built.

2001: The course expanded to 9 holes.

 2008: 2 New holes added and some holes rebuilt,  still 9 holes.

2010: Lofoten Links defined as a true links course by  George Peper and Malcolm Campbell in the book True Links.

2015: Lofoten Links opened as a new and rebuilt 18-hole links course.
