MercedesTrophy Sri Lanka Country Finals 2014

With players who were hosted at the Grand Hotel Nuwara Eliya; as the name implies, the hotel is indeed a 19th century grand structure, still young and very attractive.

The Mercedes Trophy Sri Lanka Country Finals 2014 was sponsored by Diesel & Motor Engineering PLC (DIMO) for the twenty fourth year. This time the tournament was held at Nuwara Eliya, the refreshingly cool "little England" as the world outside says, at the picturesque Nuwara-Eliya Golf Club on Saturday 21st June 2014.

How to get there: Walk from the Hotel for a warm up  Acourse 6200 feet above see level.So be prepared due to low pressure you will not get the same  performance  as see level level.More ball distance will be reduced Why -cool air is denser .If you are a pro this is an ideal course for training.
B is grand hotel

The course, the challenge.
