Shangrila Golf & Country Club

Holes 18 | Par 72 | Length 5584 m / 6107 y | Type Parkland | Architect

The Shangri-La Golf and Country Club was Sri Lanks first all-purpose golf resort.

Set within incredible surroundings of a coconut plantation and the Indian Ocean, The Shangri-La Golf and Country Club is the perfect location to enjoy the most relaxing of golf holidays.

Designer Robert Wright, an advocate of integrating the local environment into the design of the golf course, has created a harmonious marriage between course and nature.

Water is abundant throughout the course, creating added difficulty and a wonderful sanctuary for local wildlife.

The stand out holes are without doubt the par 3s. Hole 4 is a tricky par 3 played over water, requiring a well struck shot and good clubbing depending on the wind. Delightfully named, the 8th “Little Gem” is exactly that. At just 158-yards the hole plays over water requiring nerve and good judgement.

Unusually the final hole is the fourth par 3. At 197-yards it is a hole where many a match will be won or lost. Water protected the left of this large green.

Another hole worth a mention is the 14th, a short par four that could possibly offer a chance of reaching the green from the tee, but the coconut tree protecting the entrance will cause problems for many.

Played alongside the Ocean, and susceptible to the ocean breezes the 17th is a tough par four that requires length and accuracy.

The facilities are superb, modern and dedicated to the travelling golfer.

A large pro-shop offers a wide range of products and also golf lessons for visitors wishing to improve their games whilst on holiday.

The clubhouse is aptly named “Ulpatha” meaning watering hole, and is designed in a traditional Sri-Lankan colonial heritage.

Serving international cuisine as well as a selection of international wines, whiskeys and beers the restaurant is a pleasant place to enjoy a post-round snack.

Shangri-La also has great practice facilities which include a large putting green, with a chipping area, and a good sized driving range.

The resort is also home to a wonderful hotel, which offers additional dining options and quality accommodation to suit every taste.
