Cambodia

Map of Cambodia

Cambodia has seen its fair share of problems but the country is getting back on its feet and back on the travel map. Located in southeast Asia, Cambodia has been occupied by many, consequently there’s an eclectic mixture of architecture and influence which can be seen in the French Colonial buildings in Phnom Penh for example. After the end of the Civil War during the 1980s things are finally settling down and long may it continue.

Naturally golf in Cambodia is relatively thin on the ground but we are aware of few golf clubs, several of which are located within a reasonable distance of the capital, Phnom Penh. Cambodia Golf and Country Club is home to the country’s first course which was opened for play in 1996 and the Royal Cambodia Golf Club came along in 2004.

In 2006, the new 7,145-yard Phokeethra Country Club in Siem Reap opened for play, bringing a world-class course to Cambodia and a tourism boost to the stunning area famous for its 1,000-year-old Angkor temples. In 2008, the Nick Faldo-designed layout at Angkor Resort was unveiled, raising Siem Reap's golfing bar even higher.

The best course that's currently located reasonably close to the capital is Garden City Golf Club, which opened in 2013, but that may change when Sir Nick's two new courses open at Vattanac Golf Resort on the outskirts of Phnom Penh in 2020.

Further afield in Koh Kong on the Gulf of Thailand coast, we're keeping an eye on developments at the Dara Sakor Resort, Cambodia's first casino facility, which opened in 2015. 54 golf holes designed by a local architect called Ocean, Mountain and Links are part of the master plan. The Links course is not yet (as of April 2019) open for play.

Our Cambodian rankings were last updated in April 2019.
