Golf Club Saudarkrokur was established in 1970. Land for a permanent golf course was not acquired until 1980 at Hlidarendi.
Saudarkrokur is a town on the Skagafjord bay.
Fishing and fish processing is the main source of employment, but light industry and services to the neighbouring farm area also contribute thereto. Two islands on the bay, Drangey and Malmey, are within a close distance and sea cruises are on offer to Drangey with its sheer cliffs, where one can climb to the top under the supervision of experienced guides.
