Vattanac Golf Resort Opens Dragon Turn Night Golf Course


The Dragon Turn night golf is an exciting addition to the recently opened West Course at Vattanac in Cambodia. It offers golfers an opportunity to play in the breathtaking surrounds of Phnom Penh under the cover of darkness.

The Dragon Turn is aptly named by the lake’s shape that sits in the middle of three holes of this exciting 9-hole floodlit course.

Inspired by ownership’s vision to create a venue with significant character, this lake is yet another unique feature that this resort plays host to. Night golf will be available for play from sunset with the last tee time at 9PM, creating a very special addition to The Troon-managed Vattanac Golf Resort.

World wide acknowledgement

With character and identity, the East Course has received praise from golfers the world over. Set within natural surroundings, “The East” is a strategic golf course that utilizes dramatic water features, creative bunkering, and various forms of native fauna to challenge golfers of all levels.

Over and above the golf experience, “The East” pays homage to the marvels of Khmer architecture and the country’s rich history, with magnificent scale replicas of the world-renowned Angkor Wat, Bayon Temple and Preah Vihear Temple.

Distinctive differences

The West Course will certainly contend with the East Course as not only one of the best in Cambodia, but also one of the best in Asia.

The West Course has distinctive differences from the East Course, of which are defined by narrower and more undulating fairways, a variety of water features and testing Paspalum greens.

Cultural sculptures and great landscaping attribute to the scenery of Cambodia’s newest golf course. “The West” is a rewarding test of skill for players of all levels, featuring five sets of tees, starting at 4,935 yards, right through to 7,249 yards.

Karl Whitehead, General Manager at Vattanac Golf Resort, commented:

“It’s been an incredibly exciting end to 2020 and start to 2021 for us at Vattanac Golf Resort. The announcement of the 9-holes of night golf on the West Course showcases how we, not only want to compete to have the best championship courses in Asia, but we also, under Mr Vattanac’s vision, want to offer golfers a fresh and exciting approach to the game. The dramatic landscape of “The Dragon Turn” under the night sky will hopefully provide golfers this.”
