The Sofitel-managed Phokeethra Country Club in Siem Reap
has opened a new era for tourism near Cambodia’s famed Angkor-era temples,
bringing a world class golf experience to this
Phokeethra Country Club Angkor Wat combines world class golf and exceptional leisure facilities in a single complex just 20 minutes drive from
Siem Reap International Airport.
A challenging championship caliber layout features water on all but one hole and concludes with the signature double water carry 18th-hole that
offers a daunting final shot into a challenging island green. The 7,145-yard course was designed by Bangkok-based Designer Golf under the
guidance of Weerayudt Phetbuasak, who also designed Suwan Country Club. Climate tested Paspalum Grass was used on all fairways and greens,
giving the course its deep rich colour.
Between the 9th green and 10th tee is a restored ‘Roluh’ bridge, which is also the iconic image used in the course’s logo, dating back to the 11th
century Khmer empire.
The clubhouse features five-star amenities. It includes the Phokeethra Country Club Angkor Wat restaurant serving Western,
Khmer and Asian favorites, comfortable locker and shower facilities, pro shop stocked with the latest branded golf gear, plus spa services to
unwind after the round.
Golf carts and caddies are both available, and guests wishing to get in a quick round between temple visits can hire clubs and full golf accessories.
A driving range and practice putting green will be added in the near future.
Accor Asia Pacific managing director Michael Issenberg said the course continues on the group’s strategic goal of building a premium network of
hotel and golf courses around Asia Pacific.
“This is a very important addition to Accor’s resort and golf offer in the region, adding another dimension to the Angkor historical and cultural
experience,” said Mr Issenberg.
“Interest in golf is growing phenomenally in Asia. One only needs to look at the progress Korea has made to see the potential of golf-related
tourism, and with air access also improving rapidly, Accor will be placing a high priority on growing its network of golf resorts across the region.”
Phokeethra Country Club Angkor Wat joins ten other Accor resorts with adjacent golf courses in Vietnam, Malaysia, China and Australia.
Green fees at Phokeethra Country Club Angkor Wat start from US$120 to the public with 20% discount offered to travel wholesale agents (US$96).
Individual and Corporate Memberships are also available. Guests staying at
Sofitel Royal Angkor receive extra benefits including priority bookings,
guaranteed tee times and free round trip transfers.
