Information in English Krokhol Golf Club welcomes all guest players, and we have good availability of tee times to accommodate you. Welcome! 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, there is usually plenty of times available, but you will need to reserve a tee time. Even if it is when you 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 five days in advance.

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 of 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 32 balls. Prices One charge of the bank/credit card costs NOK 25, and gives you, as with the range card, approximately 24 balls. Range card The range cards are value based, and are structure in such a way that you receive a greater value than the price you pay. Member with full playing rights that “fill” the card with NOK 200 to NOK 399, will get a value on the card that is 40% higher than the purchase price. If they pay NOK 400 or more, they receive a value that is 50 % higher than the purchase price. Others purchasing a range card will receive a benefit of 10% and 20% for purchases between NOK 200 and NOK 399, and over NOK 400, respectively. The range card costs NOK 50 when you buy a new one. If you have an old range card, you may have it exchanged free of charge, and be credited with the balance, if any.

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 12 noon (10am on weekends) 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, you pay for trolley rental VIPPS. If you want to use a cart, and the weather permits its use, you can try to call the course manager on +47 64857790, line 2. 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.
