The adjacent Kvinesdal golf club was voted "Best golf course in Norway" in 2007, and it's not difficult to see why. A 9 holes championship standard wooded Pitch and Putt course is set in the natural surroundings of a mountain. There are stunning views of Kvinesdal village below along with the rivers that run to join the ocean. A round of Pitch and Putt here is truly relaxing, unique and unforgettable. There is also a full 18 hole golf course.
