Black Mountain Resort and Country Club, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Thailand

Black Mountain Golf Club Hua Hin is the 7th and newest golf course in Hua Hin and was transformed from lush jungle and pineapple plantations. The course is set in a valley, just next to the Black Mountains, which are so named because of the large black rocks set into the mountains, providing a nice backdrop too many of the holes.

The golf course looks as natural as possible and maintains many of the original features of the site. The most important of these are the natural creeks that run throughout the course and the rocks that have been used as design features on many of the holes. Many of the original trees have been kept and many new trees have been planted to frame the holes.

Black Mountain is a test for the top golfers, but also very playable for the average golfer. All 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 two shots by aggressive long hitters, while casual golfers have a regulation path to the green almost requiring a 360 degree series of three shots. I suspect than many birdies can be had, if not an eagle now and then. 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 chip shot to the green. Others, will need to two 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.

Black Mountain offers generous fairways for the shorter hitters that become narrower for the longer tee shots. The greens are large with many pin positions, with different degrees of difficulty, and the course is well protected by many 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 colour. Tiff eagle Bermuda grass was used for the greens and this expensive hybrid grass is the same turf as is used on the greens at other championship courses in  Thailand like the Thai Country Club.

The view from the clubhouse is stunning, and gives a panoramic view of the whole golf course. The clubhouse facilities on offer includes fine dining in the restaurant, a well stocked golf shop and luxurious locker rooms.
