Victoria Golf and Country Resort, Kandy, Sri Lanka - Head

“Some golf courses have a splendid undulating terrain over which the holes are routed. Some golf courses have a scenic backdrop of hills and lakes, which excite the senses. However, the Victoria Golf Course near Kandy is blessed with both attributes”

Donald Steel, Golf Architect


Victoria offers a unique golfing challenge to players of all abilities, and is rated amongst the 100 most beautiful courses in the world by Golf Digest.

Set within the grounds of a former mixed farm the 6945 yard par 73 Championship layout has taken full advantage of the existing undulating terrain, with coconut and majestic hardwood trees incorporated into the overall design.

Former European ladies Champion Katrina Douglas remarked in 1998: “This will be one of the top 10 golf courses in the world. The setting is spectacular and the course offers a test to even the most accomplished of players”.

The tournament is acknowledged as one of the leading competitive events on the Sri Lanka Golf Calendar. The competition attracted over 100 players from about 15 countries last year.

    Golf tournaments are great competitive events where you can both have fun as well as challenge your golf game along with others. There are hundreds and hundreds of golf tournaments held all over the world both for professionals as well as amateurs. Even local organizations have golf tournaments.-.

    Open golf tournaments, such as the U.S. Open, are held to try and give amateurs the chance to break into the field of professional golf. Golfers participate in a series of smaller tournaments to qualify for the Open where they proceed to the big tournament where they compete against professionals. The last amateur to win a U.S. Open was back in 1933….
