Cambodia Golf & Country Club holds a distinct place in the history of Cambodian golf as the earliest international quality golf course n the Kingdom. It opened back in 1996 just far enough from the city to provide a feeling of getting away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to be conveniently accessible. It is situated on 120 hectares amidst rich farmland, some 33 kilometers west of Phnom Penh on Highway 4.
A team of Taiwanese and Japanese developers jointly designed and engineered the property with the two nines having distinctly individual personalities. The front nine consists of large greens and generally flat fairways dotted with palms and other indigenous trees, with the back nine taking on a contrasting personality defined by smaller greens, hillier terrain, and a preponderance of water hazards. If you play the whole course it covers a respectable 7077 yards, but most players choose one of the forward tee positions that make this track user friendly for players of all abilities. The local nickname for the layout is Sugar Palm owing to the aforementioned trees that dominate the front nine.
Bunkers are prevalent on both nines and may surprise you, especially on the front. In addition to the sugar palms—considered one of Cambodia’s national treasures—you will see plenty of native fruit trees and tropical evergreens, various tropical plants, flowers, and indigenous rocks. And as mentioned, you will see water after the turn on this Phnom Penh golf course. The greens are a little larger than normal but that allows the cup to be moved to more locations and helps spread the traffic and keeps the greens in good condition.
The clubhouse is styled in a French country motif with a all the facilities of a socially prominent club, such as Guest Reception, Ballroom, Pro-shop, Locker Rooms, Swimming Pool, Tennis Courts, Cafe, and Dining Room. It has the capacity to host international or regional championship golf competitions, as well as conventions, weddings, and other functions. The management has signs posted stating that the caddies do not expect tips, but most golfers are inclined to slip them a proper gratuity out of sight of the starter or caddie master.
