Describing the 18-hole, championship course he designed, Arnold Palmer said it best: “Mountainous terrain, spectacular views of surrounding mountains and beautiful streams are what make Balsam Mountain Preserve different from any course I have ever designed.”
At the heart of the Preserve is the new Doubletop Village – a mountain hamlet of dining and recreational amenities overlooking Balsam’s Arnold Palmer Signature Golf Course. Doubletop Village features the architecturally stunning Summit House, with a private dining room and an expansive terrace for outdoor dining. Across the courtyard, the Mine Tavern offers casual indoor and outdoor restaurant service. There is a General Store and Pro Shop, and two great lawns for bocce, croquet, badminton, putting green and other sports. Within the Village will sit 23 turn-key cottages with mountain views and in walking distance to the new amenities.
More than a golf community, Balsam Mountain Preserve offers amenities for a variety of interests. At Dark Ridge Creek Camp, members can stay in tents or the camp bunkhouses and enjoy fly fishing in the nearby ‘North Carolina Class A’ mountain trout stream. Club members also enjoy the Ruby Valley Fitness & Wellness Center, which offers a myriad of group fitness classes, personal training and massage therapy. Take advantage of the 42 miles of private hiking trails, a Nature Center, and an Equestrian Center with trails, peaks, and valleys to explore on horseback.
Balsam Mountain Preserve has fewer than 400 homes spread across 4,400-forested acres, with a selection of real estate offerings including fractional ownership cabins, Doubletop Cottages, estate homes and homesites with elevations up to 4,700 feet. Request More Information now!
