Arnold Palmer and his designers Ed Seay and Harrison Minchew designed an extraordinary mountainous layout as high as 5,400 feet of elevation within the Balsam Mountain Preserve, a 4,400-acre community about 45 minutes from Asheville and an hour from the Tennessee border. Forced carries over ravines and streams on most holes make this a difficult course to navigate for some, but our panelists give the routing top sccores for aesthetics with the tremendous views of the Great Smoky Mountains.

In the era of social media, it’s rare to find a true hidden gem these days. Sequoyah National might be the last of a dying breed. Located 45 minutes west from Asheville, this Robert Trent Jones II design is built on dramatic terrain with incredible, panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains. Though measuring at 6,600 yards, the elevation changes provide a strong ball-striking test. A recent bunker renovation and conversion to zoysia fairways has this 2009 design in as good of shape as ever. Just minutes away from the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort, Sequoyah National is a great destination for a buddies escape.
