Golf & Country Club

Sri Lanka's premier 18-hole golf course

The first and only resort golf course in Sri Lanka is set amid a vast coconut palm plantation, offering spectacular views and distinctive challenges for both casual and seasoned players.  

The abundance of nature and wildlife, framed by lakes and the bountiful Indian Ocean, sets the scene for an incredible golfing experience.

The beautifully-landscaped par-70 course, designed by Rodney Wright, takes you on a memorable journey through 3 landscaped zones, each with its own unique character: 

  • The Coconut Plantation - offering lush fairways and challenging bunkers  
  • The Dune Area - subtle elevation changes and breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean  
  • The Sapphire Mine - showcasing generous greens with an abundance of water features 

Because of our dedication to biodiversity and habitat protection, the course development was approached from an eco-perspective by revitalizing an abandoned sapphire mine, restoring vegetation, re-introducing bird life and using salt-tolerant turf. The luscious turf is made of Paspalum grass, which is resilient in the tropical climate and allows the highest standards of course conditioning.

The Pro Shop is equipped with golfing essentials, and all golf equipment is available for hire. In addition, the resort offers tee-time bookings and electric buggies for ease and comfort. 

Shangri-La's Golf and Country Club is open for international, regional and local tournaments. Local memberships are also available.
