Black Mountain Golf Club, Hua Hin Reaches Elite Status

Saturday, 13 December 2014 15:13
The Thai-Swedish Chamber of Commerce is pleased to congratulate its Corporate member, the by Swedes developed and managed Black Mountain Golf Resort Hua Hin for its most prestigious reward so far. The golf course won no less than three major awards at the Asia Pacific Golf Summit in Singapore in November, including Best Golf Course in Asia.
Black Mountain was also awarded ‘Best Championship Course in Asia’ and its Swedish general manager, Harald Elisson, was named ‘Best General Manager in Asia.’
This was also unprecedented; with one single golf course winning so many awards. The reinforced elite status for Black Mountain thus also spreads throughout the world, as golf industry professionals from Asia-Pacific, Europe and North America attend the annual awards event.
Black Mountain has also been awarded by the same summit back in 2012 when it was named best championship course in Asia Pacific as well as best course in Thailand, the latter for the second time.

Also in 2012, Black Mountain became the first course in Thailand included in the prestigious US Golf Digest list of the Top 100 courses outside the United States.
Harald Elisson said the awards represented further acknowledgement of Black Mountain’s widespread appeal to members and guests who come to the course from all around the world.
“We have worked hard to constantly improve the course, facilities and service standards,” he commented. “We strive to present the course in excellent condition year-round and have also made a big effort to make Black Mountain a true golf resort for families. As well as the championship course and a great par-3 course, Black Mountain has a water park and wakeboard park, tennis and volleyball courts, spa and an excellent restaurant. It is truly a family-friendly destination with something for everybody.”
The latest Asia Pacific Golf Summit awards are also further recognition for Hua Hin as one of Asia’s leading golf tourism destinations. In 2012, Hua Hin was named by the International Association of Golf Tourism Operators (IAGTO) as golf destination of the year for Asia and Australasia.
The attention for the Hua Hin golf course will be boosted even further in February 2015 when Black Mountain will become the home to the Thailand Classic, a jointly sanctioned European Tour and Asian Tour tournament, for the next three years from 2015.
