Through a single membership, Members of The Cliffs club have access to sports and wellness amenities, golf courses by top nationally acclaimed designers, more than 20 diverse dining and event venues, and more than 4,000 events each year across all seven communities. The Cliffs is particularly recognized for its focus on wellness, and has developed comprehensive wellness programming, including hundreds of sports, exercise and outdoor adventures across its communities and surrounding regions.
Founded in 1991 by local real estate developer Jim Anthony, our master-planned communities grew rapidly through the 1990s and 2000s, opening golf courses by world-renowned names such as Tom Fazio, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Jackson, Ben Wright and Gary Player, and selling hundreds of homesites across seven communities. Accolades over the years have recognized The Cliffs as the 'Best Wellness Community for Health Lovers' (Mountain Homes), one of the 'Top U.S. Golf Communities' (Luxury Living), and one of the 'Top 10 Private Golf Communities' (The Robb Report), among many others.
In December 2013, The Cliffs was acquired by Arendale Holdings, a premier, diversified real estate investment and development company with more than 40 years experience in developing residential, commercial, resort and golf course projects. Arendale is investing in charting the course for the future of The Cliffs, bringing a fresh perspective and approach to our communities.
Arendale is the sole owner and manager of The Cliffs, owning nearly 70% of the platted home sites and another 4,600 acres of future development “within the gates” of The Cliffs’ seven communities.
