Black Mountain Golf Club Description:
(1st class European Tour & Royal Trophy venue)

Black Mountain was transformed from lush jungle and pineapple plantations and is located around 25 minutes west of Hua Hin. It is set in a valley surrounded by large black granite rock covered mountains.

The Hua Hin golf course was the site for Asian PGA tour events in 2009 and 2010 and the Europe versus Asia match play Royal Trophy in 2011. In 2012 Black Mountain was selected as one of the 100 best golf courses outside the USA by Golf Digest magazine. In 2014 Black Mountain hosted The Thailand Classic, the first European Tour event to be staged in Thailand. The Thailand Classic, held also in 2015 and 2016, is now a major fixture on the European and Asian Tours.

The golf course looks as natural as possible and maintains many original features. The most important of these are the small creeks that run throughout Black Mountain and the rocks that have been used as design elements on many of the holes. The original trees have been kept and many new ones have been planted. Meandering creeks with spillways for carts to pass over frame many of the holes.

Black Mountain is not only a test for the top professionals, but also very playable for the average golfer. 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. Black Mountain offers generous fairways for the shorter hitters that become narrower for longer tee shots. The greens are large with many pin positions that offer different degrees of difficulty. The holes are well protected by numerous white sand sculptured bunkers.

Seashore Paspalum grass was used for the tees, fairways and rough. This grass gives a wonderful playing surface and a beautiful emerald green color. Tifeagle Bermuda grass was used for the greens and this expensive hybrid grass yields fast and true year-round playing surfaces.

Some of Black Mountain’s best holes include the par-5, 6th. The peninsula green can be reached in 2 shots by aggressive long hitters, while casual golfers have a regulation path to the green 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 at each of the holes at Black Mountain.

Also impressive is the signature 11th hole, a par-3 over water to an island green. With no bail-out area and an all-water carry club selection is critical to achieve a dry landing and birdie chance. Otherwise, the generous drop area to the left of the green minimizes high scores and at least provides a good “wet bogey” opportunity for most Hua Hin golfers.

The views from the clubhouse are stunning, and give a 360-degree panoramic view of the whole golf course. The clubhouse facilities on offer include fine dining in the restaurant, one of Hua Hin’s most extensively stocked golf pro shops, excellent practice areas and driving range, luxurious locker rooms, and on-site spa.

Other attractions at Black Mountain include a fully catered golf resort with both villas and condominiums, general store for provisions, and family oriented waterpark. Black Mountain is European owned and managed which assures year round excellent standards, service, and great Hua Hin golf.

JIM BOYD (2014-04-29)

this course was awesome and my caddy "KET" was one of the best caddies I have ever had !

Robert Karlson (2010-03-17)

Absolutely immaculate and with the large number of tees a challenge to all levels of golfers. Without a doubt it has overtaken Springfield as No.1 in the area. A definite must play!

What a FANTASTIC course, top quality fairways, greens, very friendly and helpful staff, great food to a reasonable price. I've played courses in Europe, USA & Asia and this one is clearly my favorite. Only drawback is the road to the course but it is worth the ride - a must play if you are in Thailand

Andy (2010-03-04)

A WOW golf course. A difficult challenge but what isn't in life, even if you don't play well, it is worth it. A must do if you are in Thailand. The layout, the standards, the club house the F& B are all excellent. I am booking our next group trip now!
