Designed by Phil Ryan. Opened in April 2007, Black Mountain has astounded onlookers with its quality and speed of construction. The aim of the designer was to create a golf course that looks as natural as possible and maintains many of the features of the site. The most important features are the natural creeks that run throughout the course and the natural rocks that have been used as design features on many of the holes. In 2012 Black Mountain was selected as one of the 100 best golf courses outside the USA by Golf Digest magazine.
