Golf in Its Purest Form
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.
At elevations reaching 3700’, this scenic gem requires golfers of all skill levels to use every club in their bag. The course rests on Mr. Palmer’s belief that a course must be both truly beautiful and must serve the game of golf in its purest form─ the end result is a mountain golf course in a class of its own.
The design and slope of the course allows players to see every shot and provides generous landing areas, making it a pleasure to play regardless of the golfer’s skill level.
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.
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
