Golf in Cambodia
Golf holidays in Cambodia are a new introduction, yet pioneering golfers are finding it a fascinating country in which to play a few rounds. Golf is a relatively new pastime in Cambodia yet is developing fast. Cambodia doubled its number of luxury golf courses last year to four and hopes to have eight by 2010 in a bid to lure more high-end tourism from the fast-growing sport in Asia.

Cambodia is rich in history, culture and amazing tourism resources. The Angkor Wat is the World Heritage of Humanity and symbolises the heart and the soul of the Cambodian golf nation, and it illuminates our unique culture, civilization and the past history of the ancient Angkor Kingdom of Cambodia.
Golfin Cambodia also provides visitors with a variety of once undiscovered cultural and historical attractions throughout the Kingdom and the dual theme guiding Cambodia golf tourism is “Culture and Nature”. We invite you to share our appreciation of the majesty of our unspoiled environment and richness of the fauna and flora, the uniqueness of the Tonle Sap lake and the many wonderful and special places only to be found in Cambodia golf courses.
It is hoped that visitors to Cambodia and to this site may be interested in investigating business opportunities and to learn more about business conditions in today’s Cambodia. Cambodia offers a booming tourist infrastructure, with new hotels, guesthouses, restaurants, pubs, bars, nightclubs and many coastal sports with full services, security and safety. Tourist destinations are easily accessible with the many comfortable modes of transportation available, from the air, road, rail and boat.
Golf Asia Golf Course Pick: Angkor Golf Resort
The 18-hole design by Nick Faldo is the centrepiece of the Angkor Golf Resort. The course is not only broadly recognised as the finest course in Cambodia, but also one of the finest new courses in the Asia-Pacific region.
We have designed and built a golf course that challenges all standards of golfers, from the casual weekender through to the seasoned professional. It is a golf course that will offer enjoyment to everyone and will hopefully have them coming back to be challenged by this strategic layout time after time. Overall, I believe that we have created a course that offers great variety through all 18 holes and the fact that we have been working alongside such remarkable surroundings has been a real inspiration; the result is a strategically testing and very engaging round of golf. I believe that our course at the Angkor Golf Resort will help to put this part of South East Asia firmly on the golfing map.
Asia’s finest golfing facilities were honoured at a glittering gala dinner to commemorate the ninth year of the Asian Golf Monthly Awards. Mike Sebastian, the publisher of Asian Golf Monthly, said: “The response was overwhelming, underlining the ever-growing reach of the Asian Golf Monthly Awards. As we heard from many of the nominees, there is tremendous prestige and honour attached to the awards.”
Befitting its stature as the most comprehensive poll of Asia’s golfing facilities, the awards were handed out to category winners at a lavish gala dinner at the conclusion of the Asia Pacific Golf Development Summit.
