Sittrakala Watta, Chithragala, Ambalantota, Sri Lanka

Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Club opened to guests in 2016 within the hotel grounds of Shangri-La’s Hambantota Resort & Spa. It is an 18-hole resort course designed by the world-famous golf architect Rodney Wright. With three decks of tees, this club provides tee-off chances to golfers of all abilities.

Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Club spreads across a coconut palm plantation, which offers not only stunning views but also exclusive challenges for golfers. This par 70 6107-yard course has three distinct zones with different characteristics, the Coconut Plantation, the Dune Area, and the Sapphire Mine.

The Coconut Plantation features lush fairways and demanding bunkers; it is the most testing in this resort course. The Dune Area showcases subtle elevation changes, while the Sapphire Mine remarks large greens and numerous water hazards. If you want to adorn the breathtaking view of the Indian Ocean, go head to the Dune Area in Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Club.

Rodney Wright designed this golf course with the dedication to biodiversity and habitat protection. It integrates cultural and environmental elements into a golf course to not only enhance the golf experience but also soothe visitors’ eyes and feelings.

There is an array of state-of-the-art facilities in the clubhouse of Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Club. It overlooks the 18th hole and is a must-stop destination for golfers. Ulpatha – the restaurant within the clubhouse serves beers on tap, refreshing drinks, and pub-style foods in a sociable setting. There is also a spa – CHI, with Ayurvedic treatments for players and guests.

Once again, Shangri-La’s Hambantota Golf Club is a resort course. It has 5-star facilities for a weekend escape. This course is also close to Yala and Bundala National Parks, several historic temples, secluded beaches, and quaint fishing villages. They are all ideal places to unwind from bustling city life.
