“Undecided”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

The weather during our stay was not great for golf. We turned up for a game on a day when the heavens opened. Some people were out there trying but u could see the 9th green from the clubhouse verandah and it was flooded - unsurprisingly. We asked if we could order a drink however we were refused because we weren't members and nor had we played! We did get to play at a later date and it's not really a course that I'd rush back and play. A lot of long par 4's and wet again caused me to lose interest. The back 9,in my opinion plays easier than the front 9. Greens were in decent condition and similar to UK courses. The proshop is well enough stocked but very dark, even the staff agreed with my comments. Make sure you take yr passport with you for proof of identity. We did eat after our game and the menu was varied and good value. Expensive by Sri lankan standards but compared to golf in other major cities, probably priced fairly.

“Decent Golf Course, Good F & B”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

the course it self is not in the best condition. The greens were slow and bumpy and the fairways were not that great

the food and beverage at the course however is very good

snacks were tasty and the orange juice is a must try

parking was plenty at the course but the driving range needs to be done up. the balls were horrible and the range is just not upto a "ROYAL" level

“First class golf in colonial splendor”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

The Royal Colombo Golf Club is the third oldest Royal course outside the UK. A very tight and exacting golf course In the centre of Colombo. The caddies are adept at moving you round the course with helpful tips along the way and accurate instructions for putting. There is a unique ball retrieval system in place at the water hazards.

A large glass of King Coconut water, which is very refreshing and much better than energy drinks, is a must have at the half way house.

The club house is an elegant colonial building with excellent food and service, all at very reasonable prices.
