Royal Cambodia Phnom Penh Golf Club
Royal Cambodia Phnom Penh Golf Club is close to the capital of Phnom Penh and only 8 kilometers from the Phnom Penh International Airport. The 7,075 yard golf course is spread out over 200 hectares and nestled in among rice paddies and coconut palms. Being so close to the capital it is a favorite with locals and expatriates. Moreover since opening in 1999 Royal Cambodia has hosted numerous dignitaries and celebrities. In fact it is Prime Minister Hun Sen’s preferred course as he got a hole-in-one at Royal Cambodia in 2004!
Royal Cambodia Phnom Penh Golf Club emphasizes environmental protection as has preserved many of the original land features and used native palms, flowers and bushes to make the course shine. Moreover, since some of the course plays through natural wetlands there are many birds that graze in the on-course ponds and streams.
The international standard golf course features 18 holes that are all unique. The course is rather flat yet it still provides a challenge with numerous sand and water hazards, including a large lake near the third hole. Four tee boxes allow for a wide range of distances to be played and welcome golfers of all levels. Water comes into play on 12 of the 18 holes and nice green-side bunkers promote accurate shots into each of the undulated greens.
The large Royal Cambodia Phnom Penh Golf Club clubhouse combines the traditional Cambodian architecture with modern convenience. Facilities are adequate for most Cambodia golf visitors. The golf driving range is one of the largest in Phnom Penh and a good place to warm up before your round.
