Looking over the site of Black Mountain Golf Club now, it is hard to believe that just last December 2006, this was lush jungle and pineapple plantations. Now the construction is completed and the final grassing is being done. By the 1st of March 2007 the course will be opening to the public, and what a joy it will be for golf lovers.
The course is located just 10 kilometres from the Royal becoming the choice retirement area of Thailand for Thais and expats alike. This area is home to many wonderful 5 star hotels and 6 golf courses, but Black Mountain will be the 7th in the area and due to its beauty and quality, will surely become the most famous.
The aim of the designer was to create a golf course that looks as natural as possible and maintains many of the features of the site. The most important features are the natural creeks that run throughout the course and the natural rocks that have been used as design features on many of the holes. As many of the original trees as possible have been kept and many new trees have been planted to frame the holes. Very important in the design concept, was to create a course that could be a test for the top golfers in the world but also very playable and enjoyable to 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. The design offers generous fairways for the shorter hitter but becoming narrower for the longer hitter. The greens are large with many pin positions, with different degrees of difficulty, and the course is well protected by beautifully sculptured bunkers. Much thought went into the choice of grass, and it was decided to use seashore paspalum for the tees, fairways and rough. This grass gives a wonderful playing surface and a beautiful emerald green colour. It was decided to use tifeagle bermuda grass on the greens. This hybrid bermuda grass is now recognized as the best putting surface in tropical areas.
No expense has been spared to make the golf course as good as possible and the same is true of the clubhouse. The view from the clubhouse is truly stunning, and gives a panoramic view of the whole course. The clubhouse facilities on offer include fine dining in the restaurant, a well stocked golf shop and luxurious locker rooms. Black Mountain intends to offer service and dining to a standard that is normally only found in the finest hotels.
