The Siem Reap Booyoung Country Club (formerly Siem reap Lake Golf Resort) was the third international standard golf course to be opened in Angkor Wat. The $150 million US dollar course took 1 year to construct and is located only 6 kilometers from the center of Siem Reap town.
The course was designed by Kentaro Sato, the well-known Japanese golf course designer. No expense has been spared making the Siem Reap Booyoung Country Club the largest Angkor Wat golf complex. Several high profile local tournaments have been held at the course including visits by dignitaries such as the Cambodian prime minister. Luxury villas surround the course and although unoccupied, each is a sight to behold in its own right.
The Siem Reap Lake Booyoung Country Club layout features generous palm lined fairways and with 5 sets of tees is suitable for both beginners and the most accomplished golfers. Both nines open with long par 5's which is a bit unusual. Additionally, the toughest par 4's are saved for holes 9 and 18, insuring that golfers keep their concentration through to the end of the front and back, respectively, to score well.
Other unique features of the Siem Reap Booyoung Country Club course are meandering creeks that cross several of the holes and excellent greenside bunkering, both which demand accurate shot making to score well. Several of the holes feature split fairways making for both aggressive and conservative approaches to the greens. On the other hand the fairways are wide and flat and the greens very large which balances out the course difficultly very nicely.
Course conditions are immaculate with the latest variety of Paspalum grass on the tee boxes, fairways, and greens. The club house stands out as the largest structure among the surrounding rice paddies. Elaborate saunas and showing areas are available for golfers’ bathing after the round. The main restaurant features international cuisine although the Korean dishes are highly recommended.
Metal chop sticks, rarely seen outside of Korea, add to the authentic atmosphere, as do the well-trained caddies who bow throughout the round and at every stop.
The overall golfing experience at Siem Reap Booyoung Country Club is excellent.
