Vattanac Golf Resort-East Course in Phnom Penh
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. The design makes a unique combination of culture, leisure, and golf. Teeing areas provide for good views over the surrounding countryside and from the high points on the course. Vattanac is grassed with the latest Paspalum variety which ensures good golf conditions. Water comes into play on most holes, and the lack of elevation change is more than made up for in mounding, bunker complexes, and extensive landscaping.
Vattanac will attract high and low handicap golfers and depending on selected tees is even up to hosting professional golf tournaments. Standard golf buggies are driven by caddies and in the fairway with the option of upgrading to premium carts with GPS.
Full facilities include one of the largest clubhouses in Cambodia, practice areas, pro shop, and posh locker rooms. The development plan calls for residential villas, a resort hotel, retail shops, international school, and other sports and recreation facilities.
Vattanac and its “Temple Design” sets the innovation standard for golf in Cambodia. The course quality is close to the award-winning Angkor Golf Resort in Siem Reap and makes golf in Phnom Penh that much more special experience. With its premier location and design, the Vattanac Golf Resort changes the Cambodia golf standard. The course serves as a draw to visitors from abroad.
