Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and surrounded by towering peaks and 12,000 acres of protected national forests, The Cliffs Valley is an iconic interpretation of great American clubs. A grand clubhouse prominently overlooks an approachable Ben Wright-designed, parkland-style golf course tracing along the valley floor. Cliffs Valley also offers Members an expansive wellness complex with tennis courts, indoor and outdoor pools, a basketball court and more. The community's historic nature center serves as the hub for outdoor activities, including hiking, biking and bird-watching.
Convenient to the natural splendor of seven state parks, Valley is also just 25 minutes from downtown Greenville, SC; 40 minutes from Asheville, NC; and 15 minutes from Furman University. The Cliffs Valley is perhaps the most active community, year-round, among our seven, with more than 80 social clubs, a thriving tennis and cycling scene, and a fun and friendly golf course.
Opened in 1995, Valley is considered the heart of The Cliffs golf, the quintessential Southeastern-style golf course. Located in the valley and convenient to the many other communities at The Cliffs, Cliffs Valley offers warmer, often drier weather and is playable virtually every day — and there’s rarely a day when members aren’t enjoying the course. The course follows the land’s natural contours and elevation changes, challenging members to play over and around streams, ponds and rolling hills.
"My wife and I chose the Valley because we wanted to live in an active mountain community with a healthy outdoor lifestyle, a gorgeous golf course
and easy access to city life. The Cliffs Valley was a quick and easy decision for us, and we could not be happier with our choice."
-Mike Wallach, Valley resident & Cliffs member
