Nuwara Eliya Golf Club, founded in 1889 by British tea plantation owners, is one of the oldest golf clubs in Asia. It is an institution rich in tradition, history and an ambience that is unique in this country. Although the club is just a stone’s throw from the city, it still retains a touch of exclusivity, a separation intended by the previous owners, so that when you enter its gates, you are transported into a world that has been left behind by history. The 18-hole course with a length of 6399 meters has a standard par 71 and consists of long, narrow fairways, which are delimited by rows of towering eucalyptus trees and elegant cypresses, which are held together by thick acacia shrub. Good position play is a must for a positive result and the terrain with its succession of undulating valleys and hills and the many water hazards requires strategic planning.
