  • The Golf Club is a great, secluded and quiet place in Nuwara Eliya. The main attractions are the world famous golf course, the old fashioned restaurant and the cozy bar. The service is brilliant. It's a members only club so if you're not a member you'll have to get a member to take you there. There's a dress code for the bar and restaurant- no shorts, slippers, sarongs. The staff is really friendly and the crowds that visit are quite charming :)
  • A members only club, the NE golf club is an all-rounder. Views, food, service and ambience, you name it, they've flaunt it. BEST prices, I recommend EVERYTHING on the menu but a frequently ordered dish is their cheese toast. From beautiful wooden ceilings to brick hearths, the interior take you back in time. (Members are allowed to bring in guests but if you want membership, you need to love golf and )
  • It's a great club, the weather is great, the atmosphere is amazing! The rooms need to be updated however. Food is also very good! :))
  • The food, great views, golf, and hospitality.
  • Still an awesome place. Great Management & staff.
