Bunkers, more bunkers and the railway track. View of the approach to the green at the short 300 yard, Par 4, 7th hole. Golfers need to be wary as if you are short the ball could ricochet off the tracks into oblivion

About this course

The Royal Colombo Golf Club was the 2nd golf course in the world to receive the “Royal” charter & oozes history & character. The premier course in Sri Lanka it’s located centrally in Colombo & is an extremely busy course – approximately 75000 plus rounds plus are recorded here per annum !! A tight & challenging 18 hole layout it plays to 6560 yards as a Par 71 course from the championship tees. From the regular tees for Men it is a 6303 yard layout.

Open to visitors the club is otherwise a members only club & has close to 3000 members as of Oct 2012. About 600 of them are golfers. The greens are Bermuda grass & can play fast on the stimp especially when the weather is dry & the fairways have Buffalo grass. The roughs are a mix of buffalo grass & have a crab grass feel that takes getting used too – as the grass tends to grab on your clubs & first timers here do take a while to get a handle on this.


The golf course has some very unique features which make a round here memorable. A large number of water bodies, a mature tree line (that one needs to avoid), tight fairways bordered by boundary walls that are all OB areas & the very unique distinction of having a railway line run through the course. So do not be surprised to be interrupted during your downswing with the sound of a whistle OR the sight of a express train in your peripheral vision.

The club has a well stocked pro shop with golf sets available on hire & also has a driving range with 3 professionals to teach the beginner & the regular golfer. The clubhouse has excellent dining facilities & visitors can avail of the changing room facilities which included access to lockers.


The RCGC has a excellent clubhouse that will take you back in time to the colonial era with a elaborate food menu. The Snack & bite menu at the clubhouse includes mouthwatering dishes like Sesame prawns, Fried hendallas, Hot butter cuttle fish, Mustard pork, Devilled beef & chicken & Muffins too !
