The game of golf in Sri Lanka (then Ceylon), was rumored to have been played by the occupying Dutch, as far back as 1656.The association with golf is more than a century old and the Sri Lanka Amateur Golf Championship, which was instituted in the year 1891 follows the British Amateur Golf Championship, as the oldest national championship in the world.
