Cambodia Golf Courses | Play Golf in Cambodia
Below is a list of some of the best golf courses in Sieam Reap & Phnom Penh, Cambodia.
(challenging and well-maintained Nick Faldo design)
The world-class Faldo designed Angkor Golf Resort is the best golf course in Cambodia and by a wide margin. The six-time major winner, Nick Faldo himself, received a blessing from local monks and then opened the golf course in December 2007, his first golf course in Cambodia. The Angkor Golf Resort brings Cambodia squarely onto international golf destination map.
(Phnom Penh's oldest golf course)
The first Cambodia golf course opened in December 1996. The Cambodia Golf & Country Club is located 33 kilometers, west of Phnom Penh.
Set among 120 acres the 7000 plus yard Cambodia golf course was designed by Japanese and Taiwanese and lined by sugar palm trees, native fruit, and evergreen plants, flowers and rocks.
(modern layout with Sea and Mountain Courses)
The Dara Sakor Golf Club is Cambodia’s first international casino complex with an associated golf club comprised of 54 holes; an 18-hole Ocean Course, an 18-hole Mountain Course, and an 18-hole Links Course.
Dara Sakor Golf Resort lies 200 kilometers down the coast from and east of the major southern Cambodian city Sihanoukville and Koh Kong province. It is a two and one half hour drive from the Sihanoukville International Airport.
(best-conditioned course in Phnom Penh)
Garden City Golf Club opened in April 2013 and immediately emerged as one of the best golf courses in Phnom Penh. The par-72 golf course is laid out on 240 acres 15 kilometers northeast of downtown Phnom Penh. The course conditioning from the use of Seashore Paspalum turf and operations management consulting by IMG is excellent and comparable with the top courses in the region.
(well-maintained & private Nicklaus design)
Grand Phnom Penh Golf Club is a private members club and part of the Grand Phnom Penh International City. The golf course is located 20 minutes northwest of Phnom Penh and on the way to the airport. With little development away from the city, the air and climate tend to be fresher and well-suited for golf.
(home of the Asian Tour's Johnnie Walker Cambodian Open)
The Sofitel-managed Phokeethra Country Club is one of the best courses available in Cambodia. The golf course hosted the 2009 Johnnie Walker Classic and 2010 Cambodian Open. Major renovations in 2018 have brought up the course standards to those set when first opened.
(flat course with variable conditioning)
Close to the capital of Phnom Penh and only 8 kilometers from the Phnom Penh International Airport is the Royal Cambodia Phnom Penh Golf Club. The 7,075 yard golf course is spread out over 200 hectares and nestled in amongst rice paddies and coconut palms. Being so close to the capital it is a favorite with locals and expatriates.
(good layout with wide fairways and excellent scoring opportunities)
The Siem Reap Booyoung Country Club (Siem Reap Lake) is the third international standard golf course opened in Angkor Wat. The $150 million US dollar course took one year to construct and is located 6 kilometers from the center of Siem Reap town.
The course designer Kentaro Sato is a well-known Japanese golf course designer.

Sitting on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, Vattanac Golf Resort includes two contrasting Nick Faldo designed 18-hole golf courses located 15 kilometers from the center of Cambodia’s capital. The East Course is publicly accessible, while the West Course is a private members layout.
The par-72 East Course plays to over 7,400 yards and through scale models of pre-Angkorean structures including Preah Vihear Temple, Bayon Temple, and Angkor Wat.
