Angkor Golf Resort joins the club

The award-winning Angkor Golf Resort ‒ which sits at the doorstep of the famous Angkor Wat Temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia ‒ is the latest high-profile golfing venue to become part of Asian Tour Destinations.

The popular resort, which boasts a Sir Nick Faldo-designed 18-hole layout, becomes the ninth golf club to join Asian Tour Destinations ‒ which was launched in 2020 to set up an affiliate network of premier golfing properties in the region that have direct ties with the Asian Tour.

“We are truly proud to be part of the Asian Tour Destinations program,” said David Baron, General Manager, Angkor Golf Resort.

“We are fully aware that the platform is going from strength to strength, and it allows us to align ourselves with some of the region’s leading venues. We look forward to utilizing the platform, enhancing our brand, and welcoming new golfers to our fairways.”

Opened in 2008, Angkor Golf Resort, has a proven track record for hosting tournaments including the 2012 Handa Faldo Cambodian Classic ‒ the Asian Tour event won by American David Lipsky.

The Resort is also the host venue for the Ladies European Tour Qualifying School in Asia, as well as the Faldo Series Asia Cambodian Qualifier, the Angkor Amateur Open and the Angkor Fourball championship.

“We welcome Angkor Golf Resort on board, and we are especially pleased to see them join as our first Cambodian venue,” said Ken Kudo, Associate Director, Partnerships, Asian Tour.

“We look forward to working with them and further developing our relationship. They represent one of the top-tier of golfing properties in Asia and are a perfect fit for Asian Tour Destinations.”

Among the many awards the Resort have won are the: 2016/17 Best Course in Cambodia, World Golf Awards; 2015 IAGTO Excellence Award; 2012 Best Golf Course in Cambodia, Golf Digest US; and 2011-16 The Rolex World Top 1000 Golf Courses.

Sentosa Golf Club in Singapore were the first to join Asian Tour Destination and were later joined by Black Mountain Golf Club in Hua Hin, Thailand; Classic Golf & Country Club in New Delhi, India; Kota Permai Golf & Country Club and Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club, both in Malaysia; Laguna Golf Lăng Cô, Vietnam; and Japan’s Sapporo Country Club and The North Country Golf Club.

Asian Tour Destinations will be adding other prominent venues from the Asia-Pacific region to its portfolio in the near future.
