Golf course planned in Chilaw to boost tourism hub



Sri Lanka is planning a golf course in Chilaw as part of an overall strategy to develop a tourism hub in the Chilaw-Iranawila area, Cabinet Spokesman Bandula Gunawardana announced.

“Iranawila and Chilaw will be developed as a tourism hub,” Gunawardana said on Thursday. “A golf course is also planned for Chilaw.”

Sri Lanka already boasts several golf courses in Colombo, Kandy, and Nuwara Eliya. With five 18-hole golf courses and several 9-hole courses, the country is currently promoting itself as a destination for golf tourism.

In addition to the golf course, a connecting road will be built between Chilaw and Bingiriya, where an export zone is being expanded, according to Minister Gunawardana.

The development of the Chilaw-Iranawila tourism hub will be overseen by a task force charged with the integrated development plan for Bingiriya.
