Sokhim Chheang:

My Love of Nature Naturally Progressed to Golf

2nd Assistant Golf Course Superintendent at Vattanac Golf Resort, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

“I grew up on the outskirts of Phnom Penh in the province of Kandal, enjoying nature with my siblings from a young age and helping my family grow rice and vegetables. My progression to forging a career in golf course management was somewhat natural as it allowed me to continue growing the skills I knew and be amongst nature. I started my golf course management career nine years ago and have worked from the ground up: working as one of the golf course crew, a landscaper, operator, supervisor and now in my current role of 2nd Assistant Golf Course Superintendent. Through my strong work ethic and eagerness to learn, I have been able to develop professionally in my role at Vattanac Golf Resort, and use my position as a leader to share my knowledge and experience with my team and the other women working at Vattanac Golf Resort.”
