Golf course update

With the 2006 British Open showing on a movie screen at Raffles Hotel Le Royal on

July 20, Rick Bucknall, general manager of Angkor Golf Resort, updated some of Cambodia's

golf enthusiasts on his company's 18-hole Siem Reap course scheduled to be completed

in early 2007.

The course, which was begun in 2004, was designed by British golf legend Nick Faldo.

Halfway between the airport and Siem Reap town, the course will be open to the public

and is aiming to be Cambodia's first PGA standard championship course.
