This true championship layout – indeed, it was site of the 2009 Black Mountain Masters, an Asian Tour event won by Swedish star Johan Edfors – is among the best and most challenging golf courses in Thailand. Thanks to the many natural creeks that run through it, and the mountainous backdrops throughout, it’s also one of the most beautiful.
Water comes into play almost from the beginning, at the testing par-5 second, a downhiller from the tee but an uphiller from the fairway. Players must avoid the pond on the right off the tee – and then the creek that crosses the fairway about 40 yards short of the green – to get off to a good start.
The par-5 18th makes for a dramatic closing hole. It plays severely uphill to a green protected by several deep-faced bunkers, just below the clubhouse restaurant’s expansive dining terrace – the perfect perch from which to watch golfers close out their rounds.
