  • Tough course but you will enjoy playing here. Restaurant is acceptable. Lovey cost place in a cool climate. Caddies are available. A practice range is available.
  • One of the oldest clubs in Nuwara Eliya, and in Sri Lanka. Golf courts are located along Peradeniya road and towards the actual club. Variety of people have memberships here and one type in particular are estate managers. Aside from playing golf, you can actually have meetings/ events here with in house catering. The place also provide accommodation to members. Food is great and architecture is elegant.
  • Very good place to relax in Nuwara Eliya. Prices are reasonable. Generally very quiet place with a decent crowd.
  • Golf course, Snooker room, general areas NOT maintained at all..food just edible, dress code vanished members in open neck T's at dinner, anyone can walk in and order food and drinks - whole lot of undesirable Indians, HNB function with very loud horrible music deep in to the night... ambiance and class gone to the dogs... so sad..
  • Amazing place. Nice staff and food. You can stay all day watching around
