The Siem Reap Booyoung Country Club formerly known as Angkor Lake Resort Golf Club is the third international standard golf course to be opened in Angkor Wat. The $150 million US dollar course took 1 year to construct and is located only 6 kilometers from the center of Siem Reap town.
The course is owned by the Korean company KTC Leisure Co. Ltd. and was designed by Kentaro Sato, the well-known Japanese golf course designer. As expected from the Korean owners, no expense has been spared making the Angkor Lake Resort Golf Club the largest Angkor Wat golf resort. Luxury villas surround the course and each are a sight to behold in their own right.
The Siem Reap Booyoung Country Club is located only 6km from the centre of Siem Reap at Tropaingrun Village, Ompil Commune, Prasat Bakong District, Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The Angkor Lake Resort Golf Course layout features generous palm lined fairways and with 5 sets of tees is suitable for both beginners and the most accomplished golfers. Both nines open with long par 5’s which is a bit unusual. Additionally, the toughest par 4’s are saved for holes 9 and 18, insuring that golfers keep their concentration through to the end of the front and back, respectively, to score well.
Other unique features of the Angkor Lake Resort Golf Club are meandering creeks that cross several of the holes almost making for blind water hazards and severe greenside bunkering which demands accurate shot making into the greens. On the other hand the fairways are wide and flat and the greens very large which balances out the course difficultly very nicely.
Course conditions are immaculate and the club house stands out as the largest structure among the surrounding rice paddies. Elaborate saunas and showing areas are available for golfers bathing after the round. Several restaurants are available although the Korean dishes are highly recommended over the local fare.
Beautifully laid out in lush green countryside and surrounded by tranquil palm trees framed by tropical blue sky, this track evokes a sense of calm and well-being that is conducive to a pleasant Cambodia golf holiday. The peaceful country views reflect Khmer Empire history as captured by designer Kentaro Sato in his admirable design that pays homage to the indigenous culture of the region.
