Golfers hoping to play a round at Korpúlfsstaðavellir golf course were met with a surprise at the 14th hole.
“I politely pointed out to him that there are camping sites around,” he said. “I didn’t know if he was lost or what. But he said that he got a flat tire on his bike, and had decided to wait for the nearby Bauhaus to open.”
Hjörtur said that he and the other golfers were not disturbed; they simply played through, finding the whole experience humourous.
However well Hjörtur took the experience, it should be pointed out that he is right: Iceland does have actual camping sites. If you do find yourself in an emergency situation, and must make camp for the night, please try to do so in a less conspicuous place than a golf course.
