Sri Lanka is relatively unknown in the field of golf, but surprisingly has four of the finest golf courses (one incomplete) in Asia. In fact, Sri Lanka’s association with golf is more than 100 years and the Sri Lanka Amateur Golf Championship which was instituted in 1891 follows only the British Amateur Championship as the oldest national championship in the entire world. The four courses are situated in Colombo, Kandy & Nuwara Eliya. Colombo at sea level, Kandy at 1,500 ft. above sea level and Nuwara Eliya at 6,000 ft. above sea level have distinctly different terrain and climatic conditions. This contributes to the enjoyment and challenge as you could be playing golf in three different countries. Golf is played on all four courses throughout the year, but in Colombo the weather is fairly dry between the months of March and May.
