Golf Club Jokull was founded July 21st 1973. Its golf course was moved twice before it was permanently located, where it is now, and its club house was finished in 1986.
The community Olafsvik developed centuries ago on a sinonymous cove. It offers a good natural harbour and rich fishing grounds nearby. The harbour was rebuilt and greatly enlarged in the 1950’s and since then Olafsvik is the most productive fishing town on the Snaefell’s Peninsula resulting in thriving fish industry and related undertakings.
