The Balsams Grand Resort (Panorama course)

Unrated: Well regarded course not yet visited by the Where2Golf team.

Est. 1912

The Balsams Grand Resort and its Panorama golf course CLOSED IN 2011. As at 2020, and despite various attempts to refinance, renovate and reopen the facilities, both the grand resort hotel and golf course remain closed.

[Original Where2Golf description]. The Panorama course at the Balsams Grand Resort is a well-rated and always popular layout. Signature greens and sloping fairways characterise the Panorama course, which was designed by Donald Ross in 1912. Almost a century later, the course continues to reward players with challenging play and incredible views into Vermont and Canada.

This tree-lined parkland course should not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. Plenty of golfing challenge, a well-crafted design and usually good upkeep all contribute to the appeal of this course. One to include on your play list if you are in the area.

Golf Son Gual

Golf Son Gual is home to a course frequently rated the No.1 layout on the holiday island of Mallorca. Opening for play in 2007, this Thomas Himmel design combines the openness of a links-style layout with the stylish bunkering and not infrequent water hazards more typically associated with parkland courses.

Son Gual is located just a few kilometres from Palma (Mallorca). Palma's Old City shows clear influences from the city's Arab past.
