All set up for the Nations Cup

FINAL preparations are being made for the 2009 FCC Nations Cup at Siem Reap’s Angkor Golf Resort over the weekend.

This inaugural team golf event in the Kingdom will challenge a total of 40 golfers who represent the nations of Australia, France, Britain and Ireland, Thailand, Canada and hosts Cambodia.

Teams of up to six will play a stableford scoring system, with the best four scores counting on each day. However, every member of the team must contribute at least one score over the two days.

The team with the highest points tally Sunday will be deemed the champion nation.

There will be some entertaining traps along the way, with the FCC staff plying golfers with their signature drink, the Transfusion, as they tackle the championship course.

Angkor Golf Resort also welcomes back a number of golfers who competed during the Angkor Amateur Open. Notable course stalwarts include Brendan O’Driscoll, Rob Matteo, Chris Poniah of Malaysia, and big-hitting South African Chris Boshoff, who will represent his adopted country of Cambodia.

Play is due to commence at 12:30pm Saturday, with the final round starting at 8:30am Sunday. A buffet lunch and prize giving will be held at the Angkor Golf Resort clubhouse.
