Opening of the Eagles' Golf Links in Sri Lanka

The Eagles' Golf Links, Sri Lanka's fourth golf course and the only golf course along Sri Lanka's picturesque East coast, was inaugurated on 7th January 2012 by Former Secretary to the Ministry of Defence and Urban Development, Mr. Gotabaya Rajapaksa.Former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Roshan Goonetileke; Former Commander of the Sri Lanka Air Force, Air Marshal Harsha Abeywickrama; and Former Chief of Staff Air Vice Marshal Kolitha Gunatilleke, and other distinguished guests were present at the occasion. It is owned and managed by the Sri Lanka Air Force.

 

The 171-acre course extends inland from the periphery of the bay, and embraces undulating lush greens and forested areas, with intermittent lagoons adding to the changing landscape. The Club House, located close to the first tee-off, faces the bay and is surrounded by rolling lawns. Eagles' Golf Links' fairways extend down from par 3 to par 5, with plenty of challenges such as water hazards, sand bunkers, roughs and doglegs, left and right. The view from any point of the grounds is breathtaking, with walks along the fairway winding over undulating turf, arched bridges and through colourful bowers of greenery.

The new Eagles' Golf Links is undoubtedly an excellent addition to Sri Lanka's golf offerings, and offers a unique experience in the country's picturesque East coast.
