Black Mountain Golf Course offers natural creeks, stunning surroundings and a superbly designed course. The idea of the design company was to build two equally attractive golf courses, the East Course, which is open now –is the Championship Course, and the West Course, which started construction in 2007, will be the Resort Course. Many of the original trees have been kept on the course, with new ones added to line the fairways.
The East Course, offers every golfer a safe route to the hole, but also offers the more adventurous golfer a higher risk option, with the fairways becoming much narrow for the longer hitter. The Greens are large and fast and protected by deep bunkers.
Also much thought went into the type of grass being used for the tees, fairways and rough – the decision was to use seashore paspalum, this grass gives a superb playing surface and a dark green finish. The grass on the greens is Bermuda; this type of grass is recognized to be the best for putting the world over.
Every care has been taken on the course, to make sure your visit to Black Mountain would be memorable, the same to with the off course facilities, with the locker rooms being to the highest standards, and the restaurant offering stunning views of the golf course, as well as 5* food and service.
A must play for every golf holiday.
Black Mountain has already held a tournament, hosting the “Black Mountain Masters”, won by Jonathon Edfors and also a European Tour Advent February 2015
