Sri Lanka is not immediately associated with golf. However, the story of this sport on the island began in 1891 when a first competition was organized. The island hosts three of the best 18-hole circuits in Asia, including Colombo, Kandy at an altitude of 600 meters and Nuwara Eliya at more than 2000 meters above sea level.

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.

Nuwara Eliya Golf Club

The golf course unrolls its fairways on 5550m through the small town of Nuwara Eliya and is dominated by the Pidurutalagala mountain that culminates at 2134 meters above sea level. The course was created in 1889 and the singular atmosphere of its famous Club House is suffused with colonial history. Badminton courts, snooker tables and changing rooms with lockers are also available.
