Early career

After spells with Spjelkavik IL and Frigg, Aarøy tried his luck at Rosenborg BK from 1999 to 2001. His time at the champions was marred by injuries and little time on the pitch.

Aalesund

At the start of the 2001 season he joined second tier club Aalesunds FK, scoring 11 goals in 26 games during the first season. The next season he would help Aalesund win promotion to the Premier League for the first time in their history, ending second top goalscorer with 17 goals. The 2003 season was a failure, despite 6 goals for Aarøy, the team finished second last and was relegated. In 2004 he had a decent season and Aalesund was promoted back. 2005 was another poor season, with Aalesund once again relegated. Right before the 2006 season he got a new partner, Dedé Anderson with whom he formed a great strike partnership, during that season he managed to score 12 goals while Dedé scored 14. In 2007, Aarøy played 20 Premier League games, scoring 6 goals.

Brøndby

Brøndby bought Tor Hogne Aarøy January 26, the price is 100,000£. He is bought as a replacement for Morten Rasmussen ( Transferred to Celtic )
