Troon has been selected to manage VattanacGolf Resort in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, with Troon International, the international operating division of Troon, overseeing golf and club operations, food and beverage operations, and golf course agronomy and club/membership marketing.
Vattanac Golf Resort’s golf courses are designed by Nick Faldo. The Championship East Course opened in May 2019 and the development will add an additional 18-hole West Course.
“We’re excited to usher in phase two of the development project for Vattanac Golf Resort in addition to Troon managing the Club on a full-time basis,” resort owner Sam Ang Vattanac said. “The addition of these two world-class courses helps us in delivering on our vision of positioning Cambodia as a true golf destination.”
Cambodia’s luxury golf resort is in the first phase of an integrated resort development that features cultural expressions including scale models of famous Khmer historical architectural sites such as Angkor Wat, Preah Vihear and Bayon in a spectacular setting. A golf academy is a key component of the project and will be available in the near future, developing young talents in the country.
“Vattanac Golf Resort is a stunning property in one of the most welcoming countries I have visited,” Troon International president Mark Chapleski said. “Our team is thrilled to get started and looking forward to working with ownership to take the club to the next level in terms of playing surfaces, member and guest services, exquisite dining, and overall experience.”
