Information in English

Krokhol Golf Club welcomes all guest players, and we have good availability of tee times to accommodate you.

In order to play, you have to present some kind of evidence that you “master” the intricacies of golf. If you are based in Norway, this would be the Golf card that you have received from your home club as proof that you have completed “Veien til Golf” training.

If you are visiting from abroad, you may present a handicap card issued by a foreign golf union/association.

Once the formalities are settled, you can tee off on the most accessible golf course on the eastern side of Oslo. The course used to be a 18-hole layout, but from 2011 it has been played as a 9-hole course. However, it is nine challenging and varied holes of USGA standard. Last year, it was on very good condition to booth.

Reserving a tee time

On weekdays, it is usually not necessary to reserve a tee time. You can just show up. However, if you want to be certain to start when you want, reserving at time in advance is recommended. Guests can reserve tee times two days in advance.

On weekdays, call 46473625 between 9 am and 3 pm.

The recommended reservation method is to use Golfbox, the reservation system used by the Norwegian Golf Association. It may be used by players based in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia. You can log on by using the boxes provide on the top and bottom of this page, or to the right.

No other discounts may be used in conjunction with the offered package (i.e. you have to pay full green fee).

Driving range

The driving range is at one end of the parking lot. Thus, it may be considered a “drive-in range”. There are plenty mats, and an area with grass tees are available for use for practice when conditions allow.

The ball machine does not accept coins, but you may use your debit or credit card. Since we haven’t tried it, we are a little uncertain whether the terminal accepts non-Norwegian cards.

Range cards are available from the pro shop though.

One bucket filled by using a range card or debit/credit card should contain around 36 balls.

Other useful information

Practice facilities

In addition to the driving range, the club has a practice green adjacent to the first tee, a short game area to the right of the first green, and a full length (par 4) practice hole adjacent to hole 9. Range balls are not allowed in these practice areas.

Clubhouse opening hours

Whereas the course is open during all daylight hours (unless there is morning frost, in which case the course is closed), the opening hours of the clubhouse is somewhat more limited. It is generally open between 10am and 6pm. Please note, however, that in case of inclement weather, the clubhouse will be closed. Self-service check in is however always available in the hallway to the clubhouse.

When the clubhouse is closed, trolley rental is free of charge. If you want to use a cart, and the weather permits its use, you can try to call the course manager on +47 9309 9461. He may be available to help you, but may also not be available. In that case, you will not be able to rent a cart.

Score card

When you register, you will be given a printed score card with your name and handicap. If you use self-service check-in, blank score cards are available in the clubhouse hallway.

There are four different tees available, depending on your skill level and attitude to risk. Please state the tee you intend to use when you register. A summary of the information on the score card is found here (yardage, par, stroke index).

Slope rating

You can find the course and slope rating of the course, as well as slope tables showing your playing handicap here. These are in Norwegian, but as they mostly consist of numbers, they should be easy enough to understand. Course and slope rating depends on the tee you choose.
