Royal Colombo Golf Club, Colombo
(3.6/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Reportedly the second-oldest club in the world, Royal Colombo Golf Club recalls colonial days with its scenic landscape and glimpses of plant and animal life. Tee off a round or two at this peaceful course, built across 38.8 hectares (96 acres) of a former model farm. As the only golf club in Colombo, it gets varied reviews for the quality of its course and service, but the location, with its beautiful sunsets, merits a visit.

  • A little disappointed with buildings that are under complete renovation, a "pro shop" that he should forget. .. not really clear prices... mandatory Cady who cannot afford a part... a neo-colonialist vibe that is heavy, a constant presence of staff who tries to sell you something... it's heavy. .c' is offbeat but in the wrong direction... Members who take the staff for minions. .Genant. .. and I measured! As for the course. everyone. sad, shabby and overpriced... 70 euros...
