The new putting green at Black Mountain is opened. A summer of course upgrades is coming to an end as all golf course improvements are finished. Thailands best golf course is ready for high season.
Black Mountain has undergone some upgrades during the summer. The putting green in front of the clubhouse has been extended.
”We now have a huge putting green which will give everybody a good chance to feel the greens before teeing of” says course manager Richard Halls.
New putting green and new third green
The third green, which was reconstructed only two years ago, has had another make-over.
”The third green became to difficult and unfair. The undulation was to severe. We have lowered the green and made it flatter. The water hazard to the left is less in play. At the same time we still have the same spectacular playline into the mountains but it is now more playable.” says course manager Richard Halls.
The driving range has also been upgraded and now has much more appealing target area with greens bunkers and huge stripes up fairways.
New putting green, new third green, new cart paths
For those who knows their way around Black Mountain you can see in the picture a new cart path on the 18th hole. The cart path has been improved and changed on numerous places around course, improving the pace and playability.
”Cart parking around the clubhouse has been improved which makes the chipping area larger and more fun to use.”
The only work left on the course is to conclude the new 10th backtee.
”It should be ready in just a few weeks. We are ready for the high season”, says Richard Halls, course manager at Black Mountain.
