The Cliffs Valley Golf Course

Known for being one of the most walkable courses at The Cliffs, the golf course is ideal for players of all ages and ability levels. Given its location and four-season climate, golfers can enjoy this course almost every day of the year. In the spring and summer, the course comes alive with blossoming flowers, while in the autumn, changes in the foliage creates a bright burst of color. 

The Golf Course 

When designer Ben Wright started work on this parkland-style course, he made an effort to make as little change to the landscape as possible. As a result, The Cliffs Valley golf course naturally blends in with the surrounding environment. It is no wonder this course debuted in 1995 with honors from Golf Digest’s Best New Courses Award. 

The Cliffs Valley golf course guides golfers over and around meandering streams, shimmering ponds and rolling hills. These natural elements offer thrilling challenges for players around every bend. Throughout the course, players will find Bermuda grass tees and fairways and champion ultra-dwarf Bermuda greens. 


The Valley Clubhouse, designed in traditional European style, offers views of the golf course from above. Sitting on a hilltop, this 28,000 square-foot clubhouse has the look and feel of a mountain resort, both inside and out. With a grand rock-faced fireplace and tall walnut bar, gathering at The Valley Clubhouse is the perfect place to unwind with friends after a round of golf.
