Golf in Phnom Penh

Post by delboy » Sat Feb 10, 2018 9:48 pm

Hi Folks

is it cheaper to book your games once in PP or to book through agents in the uk, coming over in March and was looking at playing in PP,

also looked at the Dara Sakor resort between Kon kong and SKV but cant find out much information on it, any one been there and know what the rates are ?

thank you

Well without knowing what the agent's in London are charging couldn't say. Golf is expesnive here, do not just expect to turn up on spec. if you are on limited time probably better book in advance.
Dara Sakor road is complete. Last I heard the gold course and hotel were done but most people gave up trying to get near it because there were security everywhere. No idea if its open or not. That whole development has gone quiet. A year or 2 ago someone here tried doing golfing tours and gave up. Could not get any response from Sakor.

I hear little whispers this is Chinese only. Same as some casinos. No westerners.

It would have to be cheaper to do it here, no-brainer. Agents, by definition, get a cut.

No matter how good you are, you will never ever win in a round of golf against HE. HE's good at swinging a club,,,,,,, on the golf course.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.
