Black Mountain Golf Club, located in the Thai resort town of Hua Hin, boasts far more than just an exceptional championship golf course

A challenging design

Black Mountain Golf Club, the first and only course in Thailand to make US Golf Digest’s list of the Best 100 Courses Outside the United States, is anticipating its most successful high-season since opening since 2007 and its first as a fully-integrated stay-and-play golf and leisure resort.

The multi-faceted facility comprises two golf courses, driving range, water park and wakeboard park, villas and condominiums for sale and rent, pro shop, spa, restaurant, bar, supermarket and tennis/volleyball facilities.

No other golf resort in Thailand, and few in Asia, can match the quality and choice of these attractions, nor the awards Black Mountain has collected since opening less than six years ago.

The par-72, 7,550-yard championship course was named in 2009 at the Asia Pacific Golf Awards as best championship course in Thailand.

In 2010, the year it hosted the Black Mountain Masters, it was voted host venue of the year by players on the Asian Tour.

More awards came in 2011 when Black Mountain was named best course in Thailand and best championship course in Asia Pacific, the same year it hosted the biennial Royal Trophy between Asia and Europe, won by the visitors who will defend their title in Brunei this December.

In May 2012, Black Mountain became the first course in Thailand to make US Golf Digest’s prestigious list of the Best 100 Courses Outside the United States. Being placed 98th was no mean feat. The list contains just 14 courses in Asia and is led by legendary names including St Andrews Old Course and Turnberry in Scotland, Royal County Down and Royal Portrush in Ireland and Royal Melbourne and Kingston Heath in Australia.
