Just as Balsam Mountain Preserve has set a new standard in private mountain living, our Arnold Palmer Signature Course is setting a new standard for mountain golf. The course rests on Palmer’s belief that a course must be both truly beautiful and serve the game of golf in its purest form – the end result is a mountain golf course in a class of its own.
At elevations reaching 3700’, this scenic gem requires golfers of all skill levels to use every club in their bag. Rather than having one signature hole, Balsam has 18 . No other mountain course offers such breathtaking views, incredible wildlife, and outstanding level of service.
Golf Practice Park
Palmer is designing a state-of-the-art “Golf Park” to replace the existing driving range. The Golf Park concept is a hybrid of a driving range and a par-three short course—a growing international trend in golf—creating opportunities for night play, junior golfers, golf clinics, and new ways to engage players.
The Balsam Mountain Preserve Golf Practice Park features:
Bentgrass teeing surfaces
Target fairways and target greens
A short game complex featuring a chipping/pitching green, practice bunker, and a fairway approach area – approximately 40 yards long
A 3,500 square foot putting green
“Mountainous terrain, spectacular distant views of the surrounding mountains and beautiful streams are what make Balsam Mountain Preserve different from any course I have ever designed.” – Arnold Palmer
