Though Sri Lanka is fairly unknown for golfing, the country has three golf courses sited in Colombo, Digana and Nuwara-Eliya; the Colombo’s being at sea level, Digana’s being at 600 metres and Nuwara-Eliya’s being 2070 metres above sea level and these have different terrains and climatic conditions. They contribute to the enjoyment and challenge as you could be playing golf in three different countries. The Colombo’s golf course looks like a flat course with broad fairways which looks simple to beginners. The Digana’s is a championship golf course designed by Donald Steel, inaugurated early in 1999. Nuwara-Eliya’s is reputed to be one of Asia’s finest golf courses. The fairways are long and narrow and bordered by trees and thick bushes.
