Velkommen til Liermoen og
Kongsvingers Golfklubb.

Vi er stolte av å presentere en av nordens beste skogsbaner, en fullverdig 18 hulls golfbane i et vakkert skogsterreng omgitt av åpne og lyse furumoer, tilrettelagt og bygget under ledelse av den svenske banearkitekten Peter Nordwall og hans beskrivelse av området er:

«I løpet av mine år som golfspiller og golfbane-arkitekt har jeg i Skandinavia ikke sett et område som har så fine og naturlige forutsettninger for en førsteklasses golfbane som på Liermoen.  Topografi og jordsmonn minner meg mye om de ondulerte sanddynene langs kysten av Storbritania og de sandbaserte hedene sydvest for London».

Banen byr på stillhet, naturopplevelser og utfordringer for spillere på alle nivåer, og med god plass mellom de enkelt fairways.  Det finnes ingen out of bounds markeringer og det er tilnærmet umulig å oppleve en plugget ball på fairway pga. områdets naturlige drenering. De fleste baner har noen få hull som kan karakteriseres som signaturhull, men på Liermoen har du mange  å velge mellom  når du skal velge ditt favoritthull.  Den er stemt fram i regi av World Golf Award som Norges beste golfbane i 2022 og totalt hele 8 ganger.

Kongsvingers første golfklubb ble opptatt av Norges Golfforbund i 1988 og hadde sin første par 3, 9   hulls bane på dyrket mark i Liermoens nærområde.  Grunnet økonomiske problemer ble  Kongsvinger Golfklubb reetablert i 2011/-12.

Nåværende golfbanens  første 9 hull ble åpnet for spill i 2005 og de siste 9 ble åpnet i 2009. Den består av fem par 3 hull, åtte par 4 hull og fem par 5 hull.  Banens totale lengder er:  6248 mtr. fra hvit tee, 5833 mtr. fra gul tee, 5417 mtr. fra blå tee og 5121 mtr. fra rød tee.

A short summary in English for our foreign guests Kongsvinger Hickory Committee welcomes you to our 3nd International Hickory Golf Tournaments in modern times at Kongsvingers Golf Club - Norway. The 15th – 16th of July 2023.

The Kongsvinger GC was for the first time founded in 1988 and the present golf course is located on Liermoen, and is designed by the well-known Swedish golf architect Peter Nordwall. The front 9 was opened in 2005 and the back 9 in 2009.

Peter quotes: “In all my years as a player and architect, have I never come across an area in Scandinavia better equipped for a first class championship golf course.  The topography and the sandy soil reminds me of the undulating dunes of sand along the south coast of England and the sandy areas of heather southwest of London, where you find some of the most fascinating and the best golf courses in the United Kingdom.”

The 18 hole golf course has been developed into a stunning course with lush undulating fairways cut through a natural pine forest with tall slender trees that surrounds every fairway.  Each hole has its own room in the forest with its own character and challenge. Playing the golf course is like having a private walk in the pine forest of Liermoen, with no out of bounds or plugged balls on the fairway.

Kongsvinger Golf Club is located 80 km east of Oslo Airport (OLS), the main airport of Norway and 30 km from the Swedish boarder.

Liermoen is located on historical ground of great impotence for the independent Norway as of today and is located along the ancient main road between Christiana (Oslo) in Norway and Stockholm in Sweden. Liermoen is the forest surrounding the Lier Estate witch can be traced back to the Bronze Age (550 – 1050 a.c.).  Kongsvinger Fortress have been for over 200 years a part of the Norwegian defense against  Sweden and the fortress most important forward defense was Lier Bastion located on the Lier Estate.  Several war battles have taken place her and the Norwegian Defense, Department of Culture and Tradition  (FAKT) have recreated two historical war battles from 1808 and 1814 in 2008 and 2014 on Lier Bastion, Liermoen. Sweden conquered us and occupied the Lier Bastion in 1808 and in 1814 we won and pushed the Swedish forces back across the border. In 1905 the Norwegian Defense had forces positioned at Lier Bastion during the negotiations with Sweden for a free and independent Norway.

The Liermoen Hickory Golf Tournaments will take place over 2 days. The first day will be The Peter Nordwall’s Hickory Challenge, 18 hole Stableford w/ hickory hcp. Front nine: Greensome Foursome and back nine: Fourball Bestball.

The second day will be The Liermoen Hickory Invitational, 18 hole stroke play competition w/ hickory hcp. followed by lunch and a price ceremony before departure.
