Located around 100km from Phnom Penh capital city, The Dara Sakor Seashore Resort currently boasts two 18-hole golf courses, with another still in the construction stage.
The first course to be opened back in 2015, The Ocean Course was first trialled by government officials in 2014, although they only tested the first 9 holes.
Night golf is available and the newly opened driving range and practice facilities are world class.
The Ocean course starts right outside the hotel, and as you might guess by the name of the course, ocean views and breezes shape the course from start to finish, and as you would expect from a multi-billion-dollar project it is a spectacular layout.
The use of native flora, strategically placed bunkers of varying size, water hazards and undulating greens provide all levels of golfer with a sufficient challenge to enjoy the spectacular Ocean views.
The newer of the two courses, Hill View is a short drive away from the hotel. A small clubhouse, and the driving range are to be found upon arrival.
Hill View is distinctive in design, with tight driving holes that require nerve and a bag full of extra balls just in case.
The front 9 features the only water hazards on the course and one such water hazard comes into play on the par 3 4th. At 175-yards it is not particularly long, but a carry over the water and a rear bunker calls for correct club selection and a well-timed shot.
You are afforded one of the best views on the course at the 10th, an elevated tee gives panoramic views of the course, the dense forest and the Koh Kong Sea. The hole plays downhill to a well-protected green.
All the holes are tight and having your A-game from the tee is an absolute must, as is avoiding some of the cavernous bunkers that lie in wait.
The course seems very mature for one so young and the condition of the fairways, tee boxes and greens is quite remarkable.
When the resort is completed it will be an international destination for golfers looking for a different location.
