Wishing You A Merry Christmas!
Dear Valued Golfers,
At this joyous time of time of the year, I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. May your holidays be filled with joy and good cheers, and best wishes for a Happy New Year.
December marks the first edition of Garden City Golf Club’s online publication! We are delighted to be able to communicate with you through this channel on the latest tournaments, events and news update taking place at Garden City Golf Club and also take opportunity to thank you all for your generous support since the opening of our golf course.
I am honored to announce that Garden City Golf Club has been featured amongst the top ten finalists in the 2013 Asian Golf Monthly Annual Awards in the BEST NEW COURSE IN ASIA PACIFIC category. Previous winners of this categories have included now famous golf courses in Asia designed by some of the leading golf course designers in the world so it is certainly a privilege to be nominated for such a prestigious award and great recognition that Garden City Golf Club is achieving its aim to provide the best international standards for golf in Cambodia.
The first question we are always asked is “when will the hotel be open?”
Development of the hotel is progressing well, accompanied with full golf operations and four savory restaurants will be open by April 2014. The hotel operations will commence in October 2014 and we will keep all our golfers updated on this matter.
Upon completion, the hotel offers 250 spacious guestrooms, restaurants and a wide range of new and top class facilities such as spa facilities, gym, swimming pool, entertainment areas, grand ball rooms for functions and conferences and retail outlets, all with international standard service.
The driving range has been grassed and the building and car park are under construction and scheduled to open early next year in 2014. Once open the driving range will feature VIP rooms, a teaching academy, short game practice areas and an international café.
I would like to take this opportunity to say how very pleased IMG is to be able to provide golf club management consulting services to Garden City Golf Club. The vision and expectations of the ownership of Garden City to provide international standard best practices for facilities and service standards goes hand in hand with IMG golf course management services.
Widely recognized as a leading international golf course management company, the IMG Team regularly makes visits to provide advice on agronomy, staff training, food and beverage and planning for the golf operations once the hotel is complete and I must say how pleasing it is to see the progress made since the opening on 12 April.
With the continued improvement in service and golf course conditions combined with the 5 star facilities, once they have been completed, it is clear the vision of ‘World Class Golf in Cambodia’ will be achieved by Garden City.

The golf course is holding up well during the rainy season and we are looking forward to the upcoming drier weather when the course will be at its best. Currently players will notice some improvements to landscaping and some work being done to bunkers around the golf course. This combined with a renovation programme later this year will ensure that the conditions of the golf course at Garden City Golf Club will be of the highest international standards.
