Asheville's Golf Communities Blend Challenge, Satisfaction, and Green Homes

While watching the US Open at Pebble Beach on Father's Day, I remembered the sense of satisfaction golf course at Balsam Mountain Preserve- Asheville NC areaDad had in playing it . He loved it both for the challenge and the beauty of the course.  

But Asheville's mountain golfing challenge- the perfect blend of mountain vistas at 4,000 feet with golfing on the greenside - ranks right up there.  Take Balsam Mountain Preserve's (see photo) course, for example.

"Balsam Mountain Preserve is one of the best mountain golf courses I have ever played," said  Larry Rinker, PGA Tour veteran, and Champions Tour member.
" Arnold Palmer has created a masterpiece and the views and vistas are simple stunning."  

HOMES ON THE GREENSIDE: Just as Balsam Mountain Preserve has set a new standard in private mountain living, the Arnold Palmer Signature Course("Arnie actively was involved in designing it!"  one of the residents of a gorgeous eco-friendly home here reminded me)  sets a new standard for mountain golf. 

There's been a "green revolution" taking place on the golf courses where Audubon's Cooperative SanctuaryProgram (ACSP) for Golf Courses informs the best of them- including this spectacular Asheville area course!

Balsam Mountain's green golf course has, with the help of ACSP, had an environmental assessment including a wildlife inventory, water quality analysis, a check of vegetation, pesticides, water conservation. Here at Balsam Mountain Preserve,  golf course managers and home owners( only 354 homesteads nestled into 4,400 acres) are thinking on the greenside.

This exceptional course is also wonderful to walk and enjoy the beauty. In the winter this is one of my favorite places to capture the views and sunshine. As a homeowner, I can attest to this being a very expectional place to live and play! Great to see you featuring the beauty of Balsam.
