Golf in Cambodia

|

Nowadays, many middle and upper class Cambodians start their careers with golfing entertainment on the side. There are 4 golf courses and 6 driving ranges in the Kingdom of Cambodia. Two golf courses are in the vicinity of Phnom Penh City; one located about 25 km. north-west of the city, the other about 45 km. to the west. And the other two golf courses and two driving ranges are in Siem Reap.

A 38 year old Cambodian man who has been golfing for 8 years estimated that there are about 300 Cambodians playing golf as well as many expatriates who enjoy playing golf in Cambodia because golf is less costly here.

For learners, the driving range cost is $4 for a bucket of 120 balls. But for $80 per month, you can have unlimited time and golf balls for driving. On the main course, the greens fee is $60-$80 for 18 holes.
