  • One of oldest golf clubs in the world. Great place to visit. I think one and only golf course having a rail track in side the course.  more »
  • More than 100 years old and well-established. Only golf course in Colombo. Walking course. Not a great course but on a good level for an inner city course. Well organized, though course itself a bit r...  more »
  • The golf course is okay with the Greens a bit varying. Caddies are forced and is of very fluctuating quality. No way too buggy and therefore it can be a very hot round. There is a bad option for getting water course around. If you are not a member so it meant that we had decidedly challenges with getting water. We ended up paying around $800,-for round Per person. EVERYTHING costs money. Even the key to the locker room you have to pay extra for. Server no one in the clubhouse is lazy and almost non-existent. Service in the Pro Shop is too bureaucratic and NO service. Positive was in the locker room and facilities, all in all, a charming town train by rail in the game several times.

  • A decent course though it is a bit pricey comparatively. Bring more spare balls as any ball rolling into the water will belong to the ball collectors who would gladly charge you a fee. Lemonade at the clubhouse is refreshing and the meals are on par.
  • Members only. Went as a guest. The dinner buffet was excellent... the breakfast buffet is equally good
  • Don't expect anything amazing but it's a decent course. It's flat and designed with crabgrass. Caddie was helpful. Lefty rental clubs were Wilson and slightly better than what I got down the street for half the price. Played on a weekday and the bar was closed from 2-5pm. Weird..
  • This is a Very very beautiful location, I'm passing that place on my way to work.
  • Apart from playing golf, the club has fantastic amenities. Great atmosphere good choices for spirits and food.
