Jazz Wins In Royal Style!

Jazz Wins In Royal Style!

Thai super-star Jazz Janewattananon (pictured) romped home the big winner at the 2018 Queen’s Cup played in Pattaya today.

The young Thai, a brand ambassador for the award-winning Black Mountain Golf Club in Hua Hin left the field for dead in the final round when he raced to a commanding 19-under par 265. This was a whole four strokes ahead of the second placed G. Bhullar from India who came in at 15-under par.

Commenting on his win, the popular Thai youngster said, “This is a nice win for me and I am especially proud that I have been able to bring glory to me home club Black Mountain.”

Jazz took advantage of a hot streak to close with a four-under-par 67, sealing a solid four-shot victory for his second Asian Tour title and first on home soil.

Jazz made up for the disappointment of finishing runner-up last year with this victory which saw him take home a winner’s prize purse of US$54,000 and receive a total of 14 Official World Golf Ranking (OWGR) points.

Congratulations from all everyone at Black Mountain!

The Asia Pacific Order of Zenith is a spin-off from the long running Asian Golf Awards, the only pan-Asian recognition award programme for the golf industry that is now in its nineteenth year.

This is a unique award designed to recognise distinguished golf clubs and permanently enshrine these clubs in a hallowed class all their own.

Commenting on the special award, Harald Elisson, managing director of Black Mountain said, “This award really marks a new and important milestone for our club. It is an award that elevates our club to the highest level possible within the club industry in the Asia Pacific and we are indeed honoured to have been elected to this lefty status.”

To kick-off this special programme, a total of twelve golf clubs have been carefully selected to be the initial inductees and all the organisations have been successful in past Asian Golf Awards polls.

Each of the premier clubs on the award list has distinguished and excelled itself in terms of operating a golf club noted for the quality of its golf course, its club house facilities and services and its commitment to deliver a quality golfing experience to both members and guests alike.

The official induction of the select group of golf clubs will take place during the 2018 Asian Golf Awards Gala Banquet that will be staged in Bangkok, Thailand on November 3 at the brand new Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit.

Black Mountain Staff Celebrate!

Black Mountain Staff Celebrate!

The staff of Black Mountain Golf Club took time out on the evening of May 2 to entertain and treat themselves to a well-earned dinner to mark another good season.

The staff dinner was hosted by Stig Notlov, the founder and owner of the multi award-winning golf club and resort located in Hua Hin, Thailand.

In his welcome address, Harald Elisson, managing director of the club thanked the staff for their outstanding work and contributions. “We have successfully completed ten years of operation and we are now well into our second decade which already promises to be recorded in our history as another successful decade to come,” he said.

Referring to Black Mountain’s status as the top golf club in the Asia Pacific and to the numerous awards that it has won over the years, Elisson said, “We expect to continue receiving more such awards as we journey through our next decade. The awards are a solid manifestation of how good we are and how good we are, is again a measure of the excellent work that each and every one of you makes towards our success.”

In paying tribute to the staff, Elisson went on to add, “It is your singular effort that comes together with that of all our other colleagues in the various departments that we represent, that makes us GREAT!”

Elisson is optimistic that the future for Black Mountain is bright when he observed that Air Asia is now flying direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Hua Hin. “This is going to be a fore-runner to more airlines coming to Hua Hin and this is going to be good for Hua Hin and for Black Mountain. We will be working with the airlines to fly more golfers to our club and we expect this to be a new growth area for us in the coming months and years.”

In closing, Elisson implored on the staff to work harder and get better to ensure that Black Mountain wins a big share of the new market opportunities that will be opening up soon. “We must be better than Thailand which is perceived to be a very warm, friendly and smiling nation. At Black Mountain, we must aim to be better than Thailand. We must be warmer, friendlier and we must have a bigger smile! All of us can do it, so let this be our mission for 2018 and beyond – NOT ONLY TO BE ASIA’S BEST GOLF CLUB BUT TO ALSO BE ASIA’S MOST FRIENDLIEST GOLF CLUB!”
