Sri Lanka launched a new chapter in its golf history with the opening of the Condor Golf Academy and Fitting Centre in Colombo.

Sports and Tourism Minister Harin Fernando inaugurated the academy, which features advanced training technology.

The academy features high-tech equipment like TrackMan, GCQuad, and Flight Scope.

These tools were made possible through the efforts of Founder/Chairman Jason Liyanage and Co-founders Nick Perera and Priyantha Athukorale.

TrackMan, a key feature of the academy, uses radar to analyze a golfer’s swing and ball flight.

“TrackMan is like a super-smart coach,” explained Managing Director Mithun Perera, a top professional golfer in Sri Lanka.

“It shows how far the ball goes, how fast it spins, and the angle it flies. It’s very detailed.”

US-based Jason Liyanage, the visionary behind bringing this technology to Sri Lanka, aims to make it accessible to underprivileged players.

Liyanage has a deep connection to Sri Lanka and wants to give back to the sport.

Other professional golfers involved include Sales and Marketing Director Chanaka Perera and Director Operations and Custom Fitting Specialist Vinod Kumar.

“Our goal is to develop golf in Sri Lanka,” said Mithun Perera.

The academy aims to provide training and experience to Sri Lanka’s many talented junior golfers.

“Junior players often go abroad for experience. With this technology, we can train them here and aim for victories overseas,” Perera noted.

The project has support from key figures in the Sri Lankan golf community, including Ranil Pieris, President of Sri Lanka Golf, and Amrith de Soysa, Captain of the Royal Colombo Golf Club.

The academy will offer free services to underprivileged children, making golf more accessible.

“We aim to support underprivileged children and schools by providing professional golf facilities,” said Perera.

“Our goal is to develop the game and make it accessible to all.”
