The Prosperity Cup by Vattanac Golf Resort was held “successfully”

The Prosperity Cup by Vattanac Golf Resort was held successfully over the weekend with dozens of golfers from several countries taking part in the event.

Some 70 golfers from Cambodia, China, South Korea and the United States (US) took part in the first edition of the tournament, which took place from May 21 to 22 at the Vattanac Golf Resort in Phnom Penh.

The participants competed in three categories: juniors, women and men. Organizers also held a number of individual challenges, including Nearest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Straightest Drive.

The tournament followed a Stableford format.

The title of inaugural Prosperity Cup 2022 champion went to Tang Tao. The other winners were Sam Pay (men’s category), Baik Dongbeen (junior category) and Miao Miao (women’s category).

The winners received their prizes at the awards ceremony that followed on Sunday.

“We believe that the Prosperity Cup will become an important annual international event at Vattanac Golf Resort and that it will grow from year to year. We see it as the ultimate golf weekend; where golfers can enjoy a great round of golf, spending valuable time with like-minded people, in a fun yet competitive environment,” said Marcus Hartup, Acting General Manager of Vattanac Golf Resort.

Hartup then thanked the sponsors of the event, including Vattanac Premium Beer, Vattanac Bank, Ecco, SCG Cambodia and Urban Living Solutions.

Golf is becoming increasingly popular in Cambodia, with professional associations, businesses and golf courses holding regular tournaments, local media reported.

The number of golf courses in the Kingdom has also increased. There are currently more than 10 golf courses in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and other provinces.

Cambodia has been named Undiscovered Golf Destination 2020 by the International Association of Golf Operators or IAGTO.

Over the past few months, the Vattanac Golf Resort, designed by Sir Nick Faldo, has hosted several tournaments including the 2GEN Championship, the 180th Buaya Club Golf Tournament and the 5th Samdech Krolahom Cup 2022.
