The Lava Challenge is a 36 hole tournament, played on two of the most prestigious courses Iceland has to offer; at Keilir Golf Club and Oddur Golf Club. During the months of June and July the sun only sits for a brief moment during the night which gives ample light to play golf through midnight and into the early hours of the morning. Midnight golf in Iceland is an incredible golfing experience, which many golfers from around the world come to enjoy. Lava puts a large mark on both courses and offers an exciting experience for golfers. The Lava Challenge takes place in the third week of June each year.
The Lava Challenge is a tournament open to professional and amateur golfers with a valid handicap. It is played under the Stableford point system. Scratch and handicap prizes will be awarded. In the event of a tied score, a sudden death will take place and repeated until there is a winner. Maximum handicap for men is 24 and 28 for women. Any competitors with higher handicap will compete with the handicap above.
