Phnom Penh, Cambodia, (7th December 2022) Vattanac Golf Resort, the luxury Troon Golf property, is celebrating a string of award wins following a magnificent 2022. The opulent golf resort is situated in the bustling, contemporary, and exciting city of Phnom Penh, Cambodia and boasts a string of amenities. These include 36-holes of Championship Golf, which are widely recognized as the best in the country, thanks to its Sir Nick Faldo design and top-level management from Troon.

Vattanac continues to go from strength to strength this year as it collects a raft of awards, including a bronze award for Best Golf Resort in Asia Pacific in 2022, ranking Vattanac Golf Resort as the number three golf resort in all of Asia Pacific. The prestigious and sought-after awards recognise and honour the best in the Asia Pacific Golf Industry and are widely regarded as the “Oscars” of the Global Golf Club Industry.

In addition, the West Course at Vattanac Golf Resort was voted as Cambodia’s Number One Golf Course at the 2022 World Golf Awards, the second consecutive year the West Course has received this accolade, and the third year one of Vattanac Golf Resort’s courses was recognized as Number One with Vattanac Golf Resort’s East Course receiving this recognition in 2020.

Vattanac Group Executive Director, Neak Oknha Vattanac Sam Ang, said: “The recognition as third ranked Golf Resort in Asia Pacific is confirmation of the incredibly bright future of Vattanac Golf Resort and Vattanacville. Alongside luxury hospitality products in Phnom Penh such as Rosewood Phnom Penh and Hôtel KVL, this award supports to showcase Cambodia as a high-quality hospitality destination and as a must-visit for the golf traveler seeking a high-end, endearing golf experience.”

DJ Flanders, Senior Vice President at Troon International commented, “This recognition is indicative of the commitment to excellence our Ownership and Associates have at Vattanac Golf Resort. I am confident that Vattanac Golf Resort will continue to be recognized as a premiere golf destination within Asia and Troon could not be prouder to be in partnership with Vattanac Golf Resort.

“This is yet another celebratory milestone for Vattanac Golf Resort and recognizes the hard work and dedication of all of our people at all levels. From Associates and Management Teams, who deliver attentive and personalized experiences, Troon Golf for the backing, systems, and support, and to our Ownership whose vision for Vattanac Golf Resort is nothing short of mind blowing. It is incredibly rewarding to see these collaborative efforts recognized by our peers in the golf industry” said Chris Geraghty, General Manager of Vattanac Golf Resort.

Both the East and West Course of the Vattanac Golf Resort provide a spectacular setting around famous cultural expressions that include scale models of Khmer historical architectural sites, such as UNESCO Heritage Site Angkor Wat, Preah Vihear, Terrace of the Elephants, and Bayon.

The East Course is a strategic golf course that utilizes dramatic water features, creative bunkering, and various forms of native fauna to challenge golfers of all levels. The West Course has distinctive differences from the East Course, including narrower and more undulating fairways, a variety of unique water features, and testing Paspalum greens.

The night golf venue “Dragon Turn” with unique and significant character has been named by the lake’s shape that sits in the middle of three holes of this exciting 9-hole floodlit course. “Dragon Turn was voted as “The World’s Best 9 Hole Golf Course” in 2021.

Some of the unique features that the club provides include its standard GPS-equipped Golf Carts. Guests can also relax during their round of golf with a lovely meal or a refreshing drink while basking in the surroundings in one of their seven teahouses across East and West courses.
