One of the best in South Asia


The par-70, 18-hole, award winning golf course at Shangri-La Hambantota, spread across a coconut palm plantation with spectacular views of the Indian Ocean, is one of the best in South Asia.

This picturesque course was designed by Rodney Wright, the globally-celebrated golf architect, with the course offering lush fairways, challenging bunkers and a dune area featuring subtle elevation changes. This is a major challenge for any young or seasoned player to tee off.

Inspired by Sri Lanka’s colonial heritage, the resort offers a wide array of services and facilities for ardent golfers to relax and enjoy.

Ulpatha, the Golf Club House, overlooks the 18th hole and is the perfect place to unwind after a game, with a fine selection of beverages and snacks. For players’ convenience, the Pro-shop offers a wide range of products, including a selection of premium golf equipment, caps, polos, shoes and sun glasses.

The golf course is USGA (United States Golf Association) Course and Slope Rated. The course is open to in-house guests of the resort and non-residents of the hotel with annual golf memberships.
