PHNOM PENH, 12 September 2019: Vattanac Golf Resort is the second Cambodian course to join the Faldo Design portfolio, following the opening of its East Course.
The golf course covering 7,500 yards takes inspiration from the Bayon temple at Siem Reap, as well as actual on-course replicas of other pre-Angkor structures, including the Preah Vihear and Angkor Wat.
Located 20 kilometres from the centre of Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital, this is the first of two championship-standard 18-hole golf courses that make up the core of the with the West Course set to be completed later this year.
The other Faldo designed course is located in Siem Reap. The Angkor Golf Resort in Siem Reap is recognised for having one of the best clubhouses in Cambodia.
Meanwhile, the Vattanac Golf Resort development master plan will also eventually see the addition of residential villas, a resort hotel, retail shops, an international school, and other sports and recreation facilities in order to attract international visitors.
