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.
Farm 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.
