His 9th hole at Innsbruck Golf Course, Helen, Ga. was recently named the 6th best in the world in 'Divine Nines, Innsbruck by Arnold Palmer'. (You could Google it) Bill and Elaine Watts, his wife, have enjoyed retirement and extensive travel.
Why the Owner Chose Sky Valley: This home is well maintained. Attentive single family owners have loved this retreat for years making many wonderful family memories! We hope you will experience the same joy and peace that we find at this mountain retreat. Our elevation is 3,300' with evenings in the 60's and summer days in high 70's and low 80's!!
