The Nordic Golf League is one of the four PGA European Tour-recognised third-tier men's professional golf tours that are collectively known as the Satellite Tour. The top five players on the rankings list at the end of each season earn a place on the second tier Challenge Tour for the following year.[1]

The Nordic Golf League is based in Scandinavia, and consists primarily of tournaments on the national tours of Denmark (Ecco Tour), Finland (Finnish Golf Tour), Norway and Sweden (Nordea Tour).

Beginning in July 2015, Nordic Golf League tournaments carry Official World Golf Ranking points.[2]

Alumni who went on to win on the European Tour include Thorbjørn Olesen, Morten Ørum Madsen, Kristoffer Broberg, Rikard Karlberg, and Christian Nilsson.
