Troon Women’s Golf Month is in its 7th year and aims to celebrate women in golf with a month of activities and awareness programmes.
We look to encourage female participation in the game throughout the year, with our international destinations spotlighting clinics, tuition programmes and activities geared towards growing the game amongst women. These range from junior programmes like those at Montgomerie Golf Club Dubai to specific Ladies Days as implemented by The Els Club Dubai which offer women discounts on green fees to ladies and complimentary access to practice facilities.
During Troon Women’s Golf Month, we focus in on Women’s Golf to get as many ladies experiencing golf at their local Troon managed golf course, as possible. But let’s not forget the women that work behind the scenes to maintain the golf course; women in agronomy.
At Vattanac Golf Resort in Cambodia, Sokhim Chheang has played an integral role at the facility as Assistant Superintendent. Working in the golf industry for seven years, she is passionate about continually learning and developing her knowledge and sharing that knowledge with the team to produce superior playing surfaces and a great golf experience for guests. She started out in the landscape team and has worked her way up to Assistant Superintendent thanks to her ambition. Sokhim continually trains the team in all departments whether it be in agronomy or explaining to the caddies on how green speed is measured and the characteristics of the TifEagle putting greens at Vattanac Golf Resort.
