Black Mountain is everything you would expect of a world-class golf resort. Not only is the championship course acknowledged as being one of the best in Asia, it is the only course in Thailand ever named in Golf Digest’s Top 100 Courses Outside the US.
Here you will experience golf at its very best in a wonderful setting, with sweeping vistas from almost every hole, a challenging yet highly enjoyable design and tour-standard conditioning.
Since opening in 2007, Black Mountain has hosted three Asian Tour events, including the 2014 King’s Cup held in January, the co-sanctioned Asian Tour and European Tour event True Thailand Classic, and has won a string of international awards, including best course in Thailand for the past four years in a row, and “Best Course in Asia Pacific” 2014.
Black Mountain is not only a test for the top professionals, but also very playable for the average golfer. All of the holes provide the golfer with a safe route, but for the more adventurous player there is a higher risk option with a potential greater reward. For example, the par-5, 6th peninsula green can be reached in 2 shots by aggressive long hitters, while casual golfers have a regulation path to the green almost requiring a 270 degree series of 3 shots around the tree and water fronting the green. Many birdies and a now and again eagle can be had here. Immediately following, the 7th hole, a par-4, provides two realistic ways to play the hole. Those who can carry their drives 230 yards or more over water will be rewarded with an easy wedge to the green. Others, will need to 2 shots to skirt around the water, first left and then back right, making it almost impossible to par. Again, this hole is a good example of the risk & reward situation on each of the holes at Black Mountain.
The par-3 course may be the best you will ever play. Set in a natural valley, there is water on every hole – requiring precise shot making and concentration, just as you need on a full-length course!
Outstanding service, the most modern carts and electric buggies available – yes, you can walk the course if you wish – first-class practice facilities and a modern clubhouse overlooking the course make Black Mountain a golf experience you will long remember.
Other attractions at Black Mountain include a 9 hole par-3 course along with a wake board and water park. Black Mountain is European owned and managed which assures smooth operations, year round excellent standards, and enjoyment for the whole family.
