Absolute terrible customer service at this golf course. Beware when you book!! We booked a tee time weeks ago and were excited to play coming from Canada. The golf course canceled our tee time the day before due to a tournament.
When we re-scheduled for later the same afternoon but only for 9 holes since we didn’t have time for 18, they charged us for 18 holes even though it was their schedule change.
The staff should learn some customer service and professionalism. This is no way to run a business. Lucky they are the only golf course in Colombo.

A club in the old colonial style with a beautiful green and grand views. The restaurant served an average club menu and service was slow. Probably because it was day time and a late lunch

This is the most archaic sexist golf club I have ever experienced. As a well travelled experienced golfer I have never been refused entry into a club because I wanted to play in a shirt with long sleeves to protect me from the sun. This really does indicate how far this country is behind and until they welcome females into their club I will not return. This has left a very sour taste for me!

Colonial old-school ambience, laid-back setting.
Wednesday night is their Hopper buffet special. Possibly the best Srilankan buffet I've done..as close to homemade flavor as it gets. The Dhel breadfruit curry, pol sambol, seeni sambol, vambutu sambol, bitter gourd sambol, bandakka sambol & country rice string hoppers are to die for.

Colombo Royal Golf club's hospitality has deteriorated. Especially the hospitality and behavior of Milroy, a supervisor there, is condemned.

Try the hot butter cuttlefish and the cheese toast. I can genuinely say that RCGC has one of the best hot butter cuttlefish and cheese toast dishes I have ever had in my life. If you are a golfer, this is the best spot in Sri Lanka. If you are a guest of a member, you can come here. Otherwise you must be a member. This place is members only. I’m both. Love the hoppers night. One of the best. I give only 4 stars because the place is a tad bit not aesthetically pleasing. I would definitely come here again and again.

Lovely place that is said to be the oldest Golf club in the country. Its colonial architecture speaks out the fact that it has been there for quite a while. The entire club is very well maintained adhering to all standards. The restaurant offers a wide range of multi-ethnic cuisine that are absolutely delicious and great in quality. Staff is professional and extends an efficient service. Plenty of parking space available within premises.

This was not pleasant visiting this club the waiters were rude and they seem to think that this was for the rich and famous thief's in Sri Lanka . The green fees was a rip off over 15000rupees nearly 90 us .just a joke nothing special even though its the third oldest club in the world .Members were talking about the corruption within the club and how millions of rupees were been stolen from the members with bogus bills for work that would cost 100 being charged 100000 . My advice do not support this club we golfers need to show our support for corruption free golf .
