The first Cambodia golf course was opened in December 1996. The Cambodia Golf & Country Club is located 33 kilometers, west of Phnom Penh.

Set among 120 acres the 7000 plus yard Cambodia golf course  was designed by Japanese and Taiwanese designers and is lined by sugar palm trees, native fruit and evergreen plants, flowers and rocks.  Large and distant mountains in the background make for a relaxed day out golfing in Phnom Penh.

The front nine is rather flat, with wide fairways and many sand traps is surrounded by rice farms. The greens are very large and 3-putting is fairly common. The back nice is a bit hillier and more challenging. Elevation changes, long fairways, small greens and numerous ponds and bunkers characterize most of the holes. Club selection is critical to reach the greens in regulation. The Cambodia Golf and Country Club is a fair test of golf and rewards good play.

The Cambodia Golf & Country Club has a nice French style clubhouse with a good restaurant as well as areas for other sports such as swimming and tennis. All in all you will have a nice day out golfing in Phnom Penh.
