Erika and Angie from the iTravel Channel went to explore one of Thailand’s best rated attractions! The Black Mountain Golf Club and Spa is located fifteen minutes west of central Hua Hin over 500 acres of lush jungle mountains. This is not your ordinary resort, with lots of activities to keep the whole family busy, Black Mountain golf club has some surprises in store! Construction began in 2005 when the Swedish owner became inspired for a golf course in the scenic terrain and just 18 months later Thailand’s Best Championship golf course was a reality! They didn’t stop at the golf course though, they built several residences on the property for people who love golf and luxury.
These 15 modern homes of various sizes overlook the green to give a priceless view and are decked out with beautiful private pools. Black Mountain also has 76 luxury condominiums that are in high demand by international and local visitors. At Black Mountain you can only become a lifetime member of the prestigious course if you own property there! They also have a stunning hotel that boasts the same plush style villas and condos where weekend or vacationers can still enjoy the golf course right on your doorstep.
They offer both 18 hole par 72 and 9 hole par 3 championship golf courses that were created by the careful eye of an experienced architect who wanted the course to be challenging enough for pro’s, yet versatile enough for beginners. In fact, some of Europe’s best golfers have become members and home owners like Pelle Edberg, Rikard Karlberg and Simon Yates. They also offer a custom built driving range where you can practice your swing. The views on the course are breathtaking and a day spent at Black Mountain will not be soon forgotten. General Manager of Black Mountain, Harald Ellison has been with the property since 2007 and his passion about Black Mountain is apparent.
They have added several other fun activities in recent years to accommodate everyone in the family! J ust down the way from the villas is their very own water park! This is a hugely popular spot for families, children and adults. They have pools for adults, children pools, a bar and restaurant, sun lounges and lots of water-slides. So while mum and dad can relax, the kids are kept entertained for hours. There are nine different water slides that vary in speed and size or you can have fun in their beach pool, kid’s pool, lazy river or the pool bar. A special feature of the water park is the wave pool which sends out mammoth waves every 20 minutes and really looks like a beach you might enjoy in Thailand! For those tired golfers who just want to chill out, head to the spa or fountain pools to lounge. That isn’t the only water surprise Black Mountain has to offer!
They also have a custom wakeboard park on the property! If you have an adventurous spirit, you have to try out wake boarding here in Hua Hin! For beginners the recommend knee boarding for your first time out but if you are not scared to fall on your face a couple times, full wake boarding is an experience like no other! Not many golf courses also offer all this excitement from the water park to wake boarding, you are guaranteed to never be bored! With decadent accommodations and a World Class golf course plus a high end luxury spa and fine dining, this place really has it all!
Black Mountain Golf Club is the perfect escape from the city and busy life, where you can let all your stresses melt away on the green or in the pool. To see more watch the full Black Mountain Golf Club episode on theitravelchannel.tv or visit their website www.blackmountainhuahin.com.
