December 2016 — Jay Manner and his team welcome Michael Devane back as the Golf Course Superintendent of Balsam Mountain Preserve. Michael was Balsam’s original Superintendent. As Arnold Palmer said to Michael on opening day, “What you’ve achieved here is nothing short of a miracle.”
Michael’s goal is to restore Mr. Palmer’s original vision and the course’s renown. Under his supervision a robust program of under-brushing continues to open up vistas, restore bunkers to a maintainable state, verticut fairways to improve drainage, and more.
Jay’s team also continues to refine the club operating budget and optimize staffing to the membership experience. A number of club events are scheduled in December, and specific times will be announced shortly:
December 16th – Holiday Dinner with Piano Bar at The Boarding House December 31st – New Year’s Eve Celebration
December 31st – Balsam Annual One Club Tournament December 31st – Annual Community Association Meeting December 31st – Development and Equity Club Update Meeting
