Private Golf Course
Tee off at Phokeethra
Take a break from temple exploration and drive off on an international-standard
golf course at the Sofitel-managed Phokeethra Country Club. With caddy
and golf cart included, all you need to bring is your best swing.
WHY THIS TOUR?
The majority of travellers to Siem Reap come to explore the ancient temples of Angkor. A great way to relax after several days of temple exploration is with a round of golf under the sun on an international-standard golf course. With the sport being available all-year round due to the warm climate, golfing in Cambodia is emerging as a popular pastime.
The Sofitel-managed Phokeethra Country Club is Cambodia’s debut international-quality course, offering the best of modern golfing, while retaining the refined ambiance of an exclusive country club. Nestled in the countryside, this world-class facility has been host to a number of international tournaments.
08:00 - 12:00
Tee off at Phokeethra Country Club. From the hotel in Siem Reap, we drive to the club (22 km) and practice our skills on the putting green and pitching area before enjoying an invigorating game on the course.
A combination of Paspalum grasses are used on both fairways and greens, which gives the golf course its deep green colour and ensures a high standard of course conditions all year round. The 18-hole course takes in sweeping fairways and generous greens, and natural lagoons and sand traps to challenge golfers of all abilities. The course provides a good mix of tricky par 3s, and individual par 4s and par 5s that require a combination of long drives and good direction control to score well.
Lunch is at our own account before we drive back to our hotel with a good game of golf under our belt.
