Golfers can now indulge in a golf holiday to Sri Lanka with Asia’s largest golf tour operator, Golfasian. As part of an ongoing expansion and increasing requests from return customers, Golfasian is now offering Sri Lanka as an additional golf holiday destination to choose from in Asia.
“No matter how many images one looks at or video clips one browses through, the actual experience can never be matched. A small island perhaps, but the enormity of its diverse, complex, exotic cultures, hydraulic civilization, ancient temples, bustling towns, delectable cuisine – home to the internationally famous Sri Lankan crab, its climate – its higher elevation chill and sun kissed beaches, journeying along meandering roads and dusty gravel tracks within its national parks – the experience is always new and it makes this island a giant,” said Pascal Orczech, director of business development at Golfasian.
First introduced at the Royal Colombo Golf Club, the island is home to four fine 18-hole golf courses, each of them located at different elevations against a backdrop of stunning landscapes. The association with golf dates back over a century. The Sri Lanka Amateur Golf Championship instituted in the year 1891 follows the British Amateur, as one of the oldest national championships yet.
