Golfing in Cambodia is Now Par for the Course

June 12, 2013 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , ,

Due to our commitment to responsible tourism issues, we are currently reviewing the golf courses we feel comfortable working with. For any questions, please email [email protected].

Until a decade ago, golf in Cambodia was essentially nonexistent. Now, Cambodia is catching up with other Southeast Asian countries in its inventory of golf venues.

These days, foreigners mainly visit the former French colonial town of Siem Reap to see the temples of Angkor Wat. But the town is one of the world’s best undiscovered golf destinations. There are now three international standard courses each with their own variety and challenges for amateurs to professionals.
Early in 2007, the Sofitel Phokeethra Country Club opened its golf course in Siem Reap. It was the venue for the European Golf Tour Johnnie Walker Classic in 2009 and hosted the Cambodia Open in 2010.
Golfer Nick Faldo designed the Angkor Golf Resort which opened in 2008 and began welcoming players to what many think is not only the finest course in Cambodia, but also one of the best in Southeast Asia.
The following year, 2009, Siem Reap Resort Golf Club debuted to approving patrons and elevated Siem Reap to an attractive golf destination.

Phnom Penh has three 18-hole golf courses on its outskirts. The Royal Cambodia Phnom Penh Golf Club is only five miles from the capital and, being the most convenient course in Phnom Penh, it is the favorite of dignitaries and executives.
The Cambodia Golf & Country Club is located about 20 miles out of town in a picturesque setting.
The Grand Phnom Penh Golf Club is a private golf club designed by legend Jack Nicklaus just north of the capital city.
