Just 16 Players Per Day
The Arnold Palmer masterpiece at Balsam Mountain Preserve is among the most spectacular and exclusive courses in the Carolinas. Now, by special arrangement, 16 outside players are invited to play each day.
Your couple or foursome will have the opportunity to challenge what may be the most beautiful mountain course in the East, to experience the acclaimed Palmer Practice Park, and to reserve a session at our Golf Academy. Before or after your round dining at the Summit House is certain to complete an unforgettable experience.
The views are indescribable, the conditions; immaculate. Playing to 6,824 yards, par of 70 and at elevations to 3,700 feet, Balsam Mountain is acclaimed as one of the most visually stunning courses in the country. Rather than having one signature hole, there are 18. And for these 18, all 14 clubs in the bag will be required.
Arnie’s approach to the game and his course design epitomize his mantra: You must play boldly to win. And Balsam is a crowning moment – a course where every nuance, every grade, every detail was considered, and flawlessly executed. It promises to be one of the most diverse and enjoyable rounds you will ever play.
PRACTICE MADE PERFECT
The Palmer Practice Park lives up to the legend behind its name. Bentgrass teeing surfaces. Target fairways and greens. Even a 6-hole short course to hone your wedges.
“The Park” is also home to the Balsam Academy, where golfers of every skill level will find expert instruction certain to make each round more enjoyable, and for the devoted, a welcome reduction in handicap. Private lessons for yourself or your group are offered as part of the program.
BEFORE, DURING & AFTER.
Drinks? Yes. Apps? Yes. Linger for dinner? Absolutely. By now you may have thought we’d run out of superlatives, but these are all reserved for the culinary program at Balsam Mountain. From what may be the best burger in the Carolinas to every morsel to be treasured on our expansive menus, Balsam stirs the soul. Equal parts organic, farm-to-table and decadent, willpower will be tested. And for those who believe the atmosphere is as important as the cuisine … ours is a feast for the senses. Dazzling views. Ruins of a historic quarry now a setting for a firepit. A sleek modern clubhouse and lounge – whether before, during or after, bring an appetite.
