Uthlid Travel Service has operated this private golf course
since 1992 for its visitors. Its construction and development has been gradual
from the beginning. Green fees are collected at the swimming pool
Hlidarlaug, where other golf services are also rendered.
Uthlid was first named the Outer Hlid and was a church site in the
Biskupstungur County. The
first farmer was Asgeir Ulfsson, the son in law of Ketilbjorn the Old of
Mosfell. His son was
Chieftain Geir, who lived there as well.
His burial mound is somewhere near the farm and the ruins of a
pagan temple are still visible.
