Angkor Golf Resort opened in 2007 to accolades and since then the praise has only increased. Many believe it is not only the finest course in Cambodia, but also the crowing achievement in course design throughout the entire region. That is saying something when you look at the superb caliber of golf in SE Asian countries. Designer and legendary tour icon, Nick Faldo, has expressed an affinity for Cambodia and the Kingdom seems to admire Sir Nick as well, if his current golf development work in progress in Cambodia is any indication.
Convenience is always a factor in the success of a golf course and Angkor Golf Resort is only ten minutes equidistant from central Siem Reap and the airport. Consistent with Faldo’s own heady style of play, the routing, shaping, and bunkering here at Angkor Golf Resort require your full attention and course management acumen to post a good number. Even the greens will keep you on your toes. If you lose concentration you are likely to miss the subtle undulations and claim you were robbed when it was your own lapse that lipped out the putt.
The third hole plays over 600 yards at par five and is a real attention-getter, as you might expect of the longest hole on the golf course. You start off with a tee shot from a narrow chute through trees knowing that water lurks along the entire left side of the fairway and comes seriously into play on the second and approach shots. The narrow green is deep and poised on the water’s edge, making par a job well done.
The course is rated by the PGA of America and affords challenging play at multiple levels with its choice of tee boxes for various handicaps and skill levels. The recreational golfer has been included in the mix for this resort course and Faldo has introduced a necessity for casual golfers to exercise good decision-making rather than build a course that is overly difficult from the middle and forward tees. In other words, bring your family, they’ll love it.
The entire resort is first-class and the clubhouse is no exception. All the amenities you could ever need or expect are provided in style. Outside, there is a quality driving range where you can see 300-yard drives land and warm up for your terrific round.
