THE FIRST PROSPERITY CUP 2022
BY VATTANAC GOLF RESORT
The Prosperity Cup by Vattanac Golf Resort was ‘successfully’ held over the weekend with scores of golfers from several countries taking part in the event.
Some 70 golfers from Cambodia, China, South Korea and the United States (US) participated in the first edition of the tournament, which was held from May 21 to 22 at the Vattanac Golf Resort in Phnom Penh.
The participants competed in three categories: Junior’s, Women’s and Men’s. The organisers also arranged a number of individual challenges, including Nearest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Straightest Drive.
The First Prosperity Cup Champion 2022 title went to Tang Tao. The other winners were Sam Pay (“Men’s category), Baik Dongbeen (Junior’s category) and Miao Miao (Women’s category).
The winners received their prizes during the awarding ceremony that followed on Sunday.
“We believe that The Prosperity Cup will become an important yearly international event of Vattanac Golf Resort, and will be growing from year to year. We see it as an ultimate golfing weekend; where golfers can enjoy
a great round of golf, spend precious time with like-minded people, in a fun yet competitive environment,” Marcus Hartup, Acting General Manager of Vattanac Golf Resort, said.
Hartup then thanked the sponsors for the event, including Vattanac Premium Beer, Vattanac Bank, Ecco, SCG Cambodia and Urban Living Solutions.
Golf is increasingly becoming popular in Cambodia, with business associations, companies and golf courses organising regular tournaments, local media reported.
The number of golf courses in the Kingdom has also increased. There are more than 10 golf courses in Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and other provinces at present.
Cambodia was named 2020 Undiscovered Golf Destination by the International Association of Golf Operators or IAGTO.
In the last few months, the Sir Nick Faldo-designed Vattanac Golf Resort hosted several tournaments, including 2GEN Championship, Buaya Club 180th Golf Tournament and 5th Samdech Krolahom Cup 2022.
