Black Mountain ranked #59 in the world.

In Golf Digest’s third biennial ranking of the World 100 Greatest Golf Courses, Black Mountain has been ranked #59 (the first course in Thailand to receive such an accolade).

Using the criteria of overall greatness scored by international panelists organized by Golf Digest affiliate magazines around the world, the Top 100 list showcases brilliant layouts everywhere from Abu Dhabi to Vietnam, including Thailand.

From the Golf Digest World 100 rankings:

#59 [NEW] BLACK MOUNTAIN G.C. (EAST & NORTH 9s)
Hua Hin, Prachuabkirikhan, Thailand
7,550 yards, par 72

The first course in Thailand to make Golf Digest’s World 100 Greatest, Black Mountain was founded by a group of expatriates from Sweden. Created on land beneath a massive dormant volcano (hence the name), veteran Australian architect Phil Ryan did the original 18, harnessing two streams running through the property to create eight lakes that come into play on 14 holes. Ryan’s trademark flowery bunkers in fairways and around greens are so big as to pose testing recovery shots. A third 9, the West, designed by founder Stig Notlov and European tour pro Johan Edfors, opened in 2016.

Golf Digest also rank USA courses in their “America’s Greatest 100 Courses” listing.

The new 10th hole

Great new layout at Black Mountain’s Hole No. 10.

A new risk Vs. reward dilemma: Hit the wide open fairway for a straight forward 2nd shot into the green.

Or, if you want to take on the water and get really close, bring your best drive to this hole as you’ll need to carry 254 yards from the 65 tees.

Jaidee and Karlberg eyeing top spot at the Nordea Masters

The third day of the Nordea Masters on PGA National in Malmoe saw two of the remaining Black Mountain players defend their positions close to the top of the standings.

Karlberg bounced back from yesterday’s round to post an impressive four under par 68 which included six birdies and a few more opportunities to slice yet another two or three strokes off his scorecard. Karlberg heads into the final round at a total of six under par, seven shots behind Swedish leader and world number two Henrik Stenson.

Even better placed in the standings is fellow Black Mountain player Thongchai Jaidee. Jaidee has probably been the most consistent player in this tournament, posting three consecutive rounds of 70 or below. Today Jaidee had an impressive second half of his round which featured no less than five birdies in his last eight holes. Going into the final day of play Jaidee is tied for seventh place, only four shots away from the top of the leaderboard.

Sebastian Söderberg finished his third round with a beautiful birdie on the 18th hole and is right now one stroke over par for the tournament.
