Royal Colombo Golf Club

Founded in 1879, the first golf course in the country receives the title of “Royal” in 1928, thanks to King George V, thus becoming the second oldest golf course outside of Britain to carry this illustrious distinction. As for the course itself, the terrain is flat and beautifully tree-lined. The main difficulties are represented by the ubiquitous bodies of water. The most charming aspect of this course is without a doubt the railway that snakes its way through the grounds, a whistle announcing the arrival of the train.
