Welcome to the April 2023 issue of the Asian Golf Insider, the source for news-breaking information about golf in Asia. Also, unique golf-playing tips for South East Asia's tropical environment, announcements of golf travel promotions, and fantastic upcoming tournament information are all parts of this newsletter.

Firstly, I would like to introduce myself, Brendan Cunningham, the new Business Development & Events Director at Golfasian. I’m now two months into the role and have quickly discovered why the global golfing community chooses Golfasian when venturing into Southeast Asia for their ultimate golfing experiences – we have a knowledgeable, dedicated team of golf holiday consultants and it’s great to be part of it!

A testament to success of the Golfasian team is once again receiving recognition with multiple nominations for the 10th World Golf Awards. We are very proud to announce nominations in the following categories:

We would appreciate your support by voting for us 😊

In the first three months of 2023, we saw golfers return to Asia in droves, to the extent that at times in Thailand, it was difficult to find tee times on any course. However, as we move into the low season for the Asian tourism, it can be said that now is a better time than ever to travel with some great deals on golf courses and hotels all across the region.

While Thailand and Vietnam continue to be the top golfing destinations in Southeast Asia, we are seeing a lot more interest in Bali, the Philippines and our destination of the month – Cambodia. Angkor Golf Resort in Siem Reap is in prime condition at the moment, with Phokeethra Country Club and Siem Reap Booyoung Country Club rounding off an amazing golf experience, with the opportunity to also visit Angkor Wat – the largest religious structure in the world.

Phnom Penh also has some great golf course and can be combined with a Siem Reap package, please reach out to us if you would like details on Cambodian golf packages.

We held our first tournament in March, the Hua Hin Skins Golf Week, with over 50 players from 15 different countries around the world. Our tournament calendar gets very busy in June with the Centara World Masters and Avani Pattaya 2 Ball (wait list). Additionally, our new DoubleTree Phuket Golf Invitational starts in July. We then have three tournaments in September with the Pattaya Men's, Vietnam World Masters and Danang 4 Ball Golf Championship. Follow our updates by bookmarking this page for our ongoing Asian golf tournament calendar. Each golf tournament allows amateur golfers to participate in professionally organized golf events that challenge one's golf skills in a fun setting and provide excellent networking and new friendship-building opportunities with golfers from all over the world.

One final tip is the ‘hot’ season has just commenced in most Southeast Asian countries, so recommend requesting early tee times if you get the chance. It’s quite fortunate that carts are compulsory on most courses, so take advantage of them and remember to keep the fluids up and wear appropriate attire to protect from the sun. It’s a great time to get out on the course but just remember to take the right precautions 😊

I look forward to welcoming you in coming months whether to a tournament or personalized golf package. Our specialty is complete full-service itineraries created for your specific travel preferences, expectations, group size, and budgetary requirements. Please get in touch with us anytime for a competitive quote. Until the next month, happy golfing!

Brendan Cunningham, Business Development & Events Director

See the 8th Wonder of the World: the Temples of Angkor Wat
Present day Cambodia is a peaceful and welcoming country that has retained the style of its former French colony heritage and mixed it with indigenous cultural charm to completely redevelop itself and regain its proud title as “The Pearl of Asia”.

The past decade has seen a flourishing tourist industry with visitors per year enjoying a full range of cultural and luxury travel experiences. Golf in Cambodia, while relatively new, has been proving to be an increasingly important part of tourism in the country.

Siem Reap is the main golf destination in Cambodia. Siem Reap is a small former French colonial town that has been visited by foreigners mainly to see the 1,000 year old cradle of Khmer civilization and the Temples of Angkor Wat. There are 3 international standard 18-hole courses each with their own variety and challenges for everyone from amateurs to professionals. Of these, Angkor Golf Resort leads the pack in terms of world-class quality and service, followed by Phokeethra Country Club. In addition, with the temples of Angkor Wat nearby, Siem Reap is one of the world’s best undiscovered golf destinations.

COURSE OF THE MONTH: Angkor Golf Resort
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. Tess, fairways, and greens are all maintained as what you would expect from a Faldo designed, and managed the golf course. The latest Paspalum turf ensures excellent year-round playing conditions.

Anantara Angkor Resort & Spa

This luxury retreat in Siem Reap is only a 10-minute drive from the Siem Reap International Airport, the Angkor Archaeological Park, and the Central Market. This is the only golf resort in Cambodia that offers a highly acclaimed butler service in all of its studios and suites.

Anantara Angkor Resort & Spa's breathtaking landscape is the result of its stunning garden and water features as well as architectural design that harmoniously combines a contemporary resort design with subtle images of traditional Cambodian art. Each of its 39 studios and suites is well equipped with modern amenities.
