The Nuwara Eliya golf course was constructed in 1889 by a Scottish soldier of the Gordon Highlanders for the British servicemen and officials who were posted at Nuwara Eliya. The course covers approximately 40.5 hectares (100 acres) of land and was originally built amidst the tea plantations of this central highland region. The course is located at an altitude of 1,830 meters (6,000 ft) above sea level. It is an 18 hole, 5,550 m (6,070 yd), Par 70 layout – the scorecard is in meters, however the distance from the yardage markers to the edge of the green are measured in yards.

Our Review

Situated at 2,000 metres above sea level in ‘Little England’, Nuwara Eliya golf course has narrow fairways and heavy rough in between trees and bushes making it a challenge if you spray the ball around! When we visited we didn’t have particularly high expectations of Nuwara Eliya golf course but were delighted to arrive at a lovely old clubhouse and a well-maintained course. Being such an old course it was no surprise to find that the trees lining the fairways were all very mature. It’s definitely a quirky course which has been moulded to fit its location in the centre of the town, it has a few crossing fairways and one of the tee boxes is across a narrow laneway next to the course. One tee box is virtually in the high street so as you are teeing off, the local shoppers are watching from behind a fence just a few yards away! We came off the course very pleased with having played a well-designed, clever layout with some superb holes and all in a stunning region high in the more temperate mountains.
