courses

enjoy seven championship venues

As a member of The Cliffs, you’re given the unique opportunity to enjoy six world-class championship venues every day, with Gary Player’s first Cliffs design under development. You have the pleasure of playing every course and receiving the keys to every clubhouse.

When you have only the best to choose from, it’s impossible to make a poor choice. Choose from mountaintop courses, lake courses or meadow and valley courses along winding rivers and through expansive forests. All are stunning in their own way, and each has its own personality. All of our courses are within minutes of each other and challenge every level of golfer.

Select from courses created by the most talented designers of our generation: Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Fazio, Tom Jackson and Ben Wright. These pros were drawn to the extraordinary beauty and climate of the Blue Ridge Mountains of the Western Carolinas, not to mention The Cliffs’ commitment to developing golf courses that enhance the land and provide a foundation for its sustainability.

 

keowee springs course

a championship course for the entire family

A challenging and rewarding experience for golfers of all ages and skill levels, the Keowee Springs golf course is the second Tom Fazio golf design available to Cliffs Members and one of his most versatile, scenic designs.

 

keowee falls course

our most exclusive golf setting

Located at the leading edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains on the shores of Lake Keowee, the 160-acre Keowee Falls golf course marries a challenging par-72, 7,171-yard layout with the incomparable aesthetics of a pure, core golf experience.

In many ways, Jack Nicklaus’ second Signature Golf Course at The Cliffs is a golfer’s dream. With heavily wooded surroundings, wildflowers and ravines, it is easy to feel like you are simply taking a walk through a national park…and clubs are optional.

 

keowee vineyards course

experience tom fazio’s original cliffs design

In creating this magnificent course, with eight holes bordering Lake Keowee and five offering views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Tom Fazio and The Cliffs took full advantage of one of the most beautiful pieces of land found anywhere in the world.

Elevated trees and spectacular views are the norm here. Navigate tree-lined fairways, ravines and coves – trying all the while not to get distracted by the views.

 

mountain park course

call gary player’s first cliffs course your own

Soon you will be among the first and few who can experience our newest course and Gary Player’s first Cliffs design.

Set along the banks of the North Saluda River, Gary Player’s river course takes full advantage of its surroundings: fourteen holes play along the river and mountain ridgelines are accentuated throughout.

 

valley course

a uniquely walkable mountain golf experience

Playing through a pristine mountain valley framed by protected forests, The Cliffs Valley is the first American design by Ben Wright. The golf course follows the land’s natural contours and elevation changes, and challenges Members to play over and around streams, ponds and rolling hills. The course provides a parkland-style golf experience that winds its way around creeks, hillsides, lakes and protected forests.

 

glassy course

the fourth most scenic course in the nation

The Cliffs’ very first course, and South Carolina’s only mountaintop golf course, is found atop Glassy Mountain. Sitting 3,000 feet above sea level, Tom Jackson’s design provides a championship golf experience with 50-mile views and bentgrass from tee to green.

If you want tranquility, there’s no better place than standing on the cliff-top green and staring out for a hundred miles. The Cliffs at Glassy course offers the passionate golfer the ultimate experience – and it’s something you can experience every day when you call The Cliffs home.

 

walnut cove course

play year round in nature’s amphitheater

Recognized by the PGA TOUR as the only championship golf course to debut in tournament-ready conditions, Walnut Cove is the first of two Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses at The Cliffs. At elevations of 2,100 to 2,250 feet, the par 71-course is extremely breathtaking and playable, while the southern exposure of the course layout provides for four season golf.
