Where You Can Play Golf In Cambodia
Golf courses in this land, which are included in Cambodia tour packages, are not extremely crowded, so you could play more leisurely; however, this country has some fantastic playing places that you could choose from, and all of those are easy to reach. Here are the top 5 places that you can take into account.
Angkor Golf Resort
Don’t miss Angkor Golf Resort’s 300-meter driving range; Nick Faldo’s 18-hole design is the centerpiece of Angkor Resort. The course is recognized as the best in Cambodia and among the best new courses in the Asia-Pacific region because it reaches international standards for the facilities.
The Angkor course was operated in December 2007 with excellent playing conditions. The signature hole is considered the 426-yard 15th, a slightly tough par four where the fairway narrows as it approaches the green. The water on the left side of the fairway then cuts across the front of the fairway and winds around to the other side of the green, providing an enormous water challenge on this hole. Angkor Golf Resort hosted an Asian Tour professional event in 2012 when the course hosted the Handa Faldo Cambodian Classic, won by American David Lipsky. Unfortunately, the tournament has so far turned out to be a one-off.
Dara Sakor Golf Resort
It is located about 100 kilometers from the capital; Phnom Penh currently has two 18-hole courses and is Cambodia’s first international casino complex. The Ocean Course starts right in front of the hotel. As you can guess from the course’s name, ocean views, and breezes are the hallmarks of this course from start to finish, and as you’d expect from a multi-billion dollar project, the design is spectacular.
Seashore Paspalum turf is used on the 18 holes of the Ocean Course, which also offers night golf. The majority of the holes on the Ocean Course have breathtaking vistas of the Gulf of Thailand. All day long, a cooling wind sweeps in. Players of all skill levels will find enough of a challenge from the extensive landscaping, bunkers, water hazards, and undulating greens to appreciate the breathtaking surroundings.
Vattanac Golf Resort
The tee offers great views of the surrounding countryside and from the height of the course. Vattanac uses state-of-the-art Paspalum turf to ensure excellent playing conditions, which was constructed by Nick Faldo in 2019. The water action and lack of elevation changes on most holes are well compensated by hills, bunker complexes, and extensive landscaping.
Our extensive facilities include one of the largest clubhouses in Cambodia, a practice area, a pro shop, and chic changing rooms. The development plans include residential villas, resort hotels, retail stores, international schools, and other sports and recreational facilities. The quality of the course, close to the award-winning Angkor Golf Resort in Siem Reap, makes this activity in Phnom Penh a special experience.
Phokeethra Country Club
The location is close to Siem Reap International Airport, making it ideal for tourists on the Gulf of Cambodia. The course itself reflects a lot of Cambodian culture and history.For example, there is a restored ‘Roluh’ bridge between the 9th green and the 10th tee, also the iconic image used in the course’s logo, dating back to the 11th-century Khmer Empire.
Curvy fairways and expansive greens give Cambodia Golf Club its unique design and feel. Natural lagoons and sand bunkers characterize the course and offer a challenge at every hole. The special double water on the 18th hole offers a daunting final shot on a challenging island green. Close to the clubhouse are practice facilities that include separate pitching and putting greens, allowing players to sharpen their skills before heading out on the course.
Garden City Golf Club
The Garden City Golf Club opened in April 2013 and immediately established itself as one of Phnom Penh’s premier courses. The par 72 golf course is laid out on acres 15 kilometers northeast of downtown Penh. The conditioning of the course through the use of Paspalum turf and management consultancy of operations is excellent and comparable to the best courses in the region. Although the overall design goal was to create a course for professional participants, it is playable for modest-level players.
The contemporary clubhouse in Garden City features lots of locker rooms, a respectable restaurant, and a well-stocked pro shop. The grass driving range, together with a hotel, spa, gym, and swimming pool, is a part of Garden City’s overall master expansion plan. While caddies tend to the requirements of all players, carts are optional and can be shared. The standard in Garden City is excellent golf combined with Khmer culture and hospitality.
Located in Southeast Asia, Cambodia is eclectic in architecture and influence, which can be seen in French colonial buildings in Phnom Penh, for example. So Cambodia Tour Packages bring you to many unique places in this land, especially the Golf playing areas. As we can see, the best course currently located within a reasonable distance of the capital is the Garden City Club, which opened in 2013, but that could change in the future. Let’s carry the backpack and get ready; we will lead you to explore this beautiful land.
