This is a gem in Colombo... great value for money, good food and personal service. You do need to tag along with a member though.... but spending that time to find a friend who is.... is well worth it :) Unfortunately, wasn't able to try the golf course but will be the next one on the list.

lovely golf course, some tricky holes but a very playable course - some severe green works were underway on the entire back nine during our 3 separate visits to the course that were expected to last for months but this didn't take away from the experience too much. I was particularly lucky with caddy's, they were all helpful and spoke... More

Steaks, Seafood, Rice and curry are served at there best. A popular dish is the 'Pork kalu pol with rice'... More

I am not a golf player so I just went with some friends to have some drinks and dinner. The atmosphere is nice and the view with all the green around you is relaxing and cool. The food is ok, nothing special but tasty. The service is not so great, we had to ask for the waiter many times and... More

The staff has the typical Sri Lankan friendliness. The course itself is quirky in it's design but really nice to play. You share the fairways with many monitor lizards as the... More

Much of Sri Lanka still has remnants of their colonial past. They have preserved it far better than we have in India. The RCGC of which I have been a member for the past 10 years is one such place. The course is not as perfect as it should be with the fairways and greens needing attention at times. But... More
