Vattanac Golf Resort Integrates Cambodia’s Rich Culture Into Its Stunning Landscape

Located on the outskirts of the Cambodian capital in a spectacular natural setting, Vattanac Golf Resort offers a challenging and scenic layout and the most impeccable customer service. All playing a part in attracting golfers from around the world to sample its impressive facilities. This is why it has been selected by the experts at Luxury Lifestyle Awards as a winner in the category of Best Luxury Golf Resort in Asia.

The resort was founded in 2019 and at its heart are two world-class golf courses designed by Sir Nick Faldo who has used his extensive experience as a professional golfer to create two masterpieces. It is situated on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, just 45 minutes from the city center.

The first of the two courses that opened was the tactical East Course, a 7,467-yard par-72 that cleverly utilizes the landscape it sits in and provides a challenge to players of all levels with its dramatic water features and creative bunkering. Taking inspiration from the richness of Khmer culture and Cambodian history, the highlights of the course are replicas of the famous Angkor Wat, Bayon Temple and Preah Vihear Temple. Both courses go beyond providing a fabulous setting for a game of golf, also immersing players in the cultural background of the country while they play their round.

The second course, the 7,249-yard, par-72 West Course opened 1 year later in 2020. Its dramatic design welcomes players with winding paths, water features and a statue of the great King of the Khmer Empire Jayavarman VII as well as a statue inspired by the Terrace of the elephants. In the center of the course you will find the Dragon Lake that creates exciting challenges for every player as they play their way to the green.

Vattanac Golf Resort also boasts an advanced golf academy with an incredible array of state-of-the-art facilities for practice and prematch warm up, including a floodlit driving range. There are also VIP rooms available as well as Trackman technology and an extensive area for short game practice.

“We are delighted to have been recognized for our hard work and the excellence of our resort. On behalf of the whole team at Vattanac Golf Resort I would like to thank Luxury Lifestyle Awards for selecting us as a winner. This is an important achievement for us, and we will continue to invest profoundly in creating a luxury golf experience for our guests. We believe in the best future for golf in Cambodia and we are honored to be involved in building that future,” says Mr. Karl Whitehead, General Manager of Vattanac Golf Resort.
