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.
