Located in the heart of the city, the Royal Colombo Golf Club is ideal for those who wish to play a spot of golf at their leisure while enjoying the old-world charm of a bygone era.
A Brief History
Founded in 1879 during the colonial period by the British, the Royal Colombo Golf Club is one of the most premier golfing facilities in Sri Lanka. Established as the oldest in the country, the club attracts many foreign dignitaries and international visitors of repute.
Located at No.223, Model Farm Road, Colombo 08, the 18-hole golf course and the spacious clubhouse can be easily accessed from surrounding hotels and Colombo luxury apartments including the likes of One Galle Face.
A strict dress code for both the clubhouse and the golf course is adhered to. Golf shirts with collars and proper golf shoes need to be worn on the course. During daytime, visitors can dress in shorts and flip-flops to relax at the clubhouse. After seven, a smart casual dress code is observed.
Best Time to Visit
While the mornings would be the best time to visit to play a spot of golf, interested parties can even go about it at 12 noon given the ample shade provided by towering tree groves. The main restaurant and the bar are in full service from 6 .00 a.m. to 11 .00 p.m. so a relaxed meal or a drink can be enjoyed anytime.
