A Day in the Life of a Member at The Cliffs

Club Membership: Why Live in a Gated Community

When looking for a luxury home, you may find yourself asking: why live in a gated community when I can find a luxury property elsewhere? The answer is not as simple as it may seem. Even though every community is different, they each provide a set of characteristics that make the lifestyle truly exceptional for those fortunate enough to call one home. One of those defining factors is the club membership amenities offered. 

Here at The Cliffs, our club membership is what transforms the living experience, offering members countless opportunities to enjoy life in our private corner of the Carolinas. To help you grasp how valuable this membership truly is, let’s take a look at what a typical day is like for our members and some of the many amenities that you can take part in every day of the week. 


Morning at The Cliffs

Start your day in your luxury mountain or lake property, enjoying a cup of coffee on the patio. Surrounded by panoramic views and the tranquil sounds of the morning, the mountains will enchant you with their magical spirit. Then, have breakfast and head out for an adventure-filled day.

Golf at The Cliffs

Once you make the short trek to your community’s clubhouse, visit the wellness center for a quick workout with your personal trainer. After you’ve finished your workout, head over to the golf course for a round of golf with your friends. With 18 holes designed by some of the sport’s top names, you will enjoy a challenging course that draws you in closer to the outdoors that surrounds the community. Or you may choose to visit another community at The Cliffs and play on any of the other six courses available to you as a golf club member. Whichever you choose, you can expect an exciting challenge filled with spectacular vistas and great company.


After such an active morning, it’s time to refuel with a delicious lunch at the community’s fine-dining establishment. Whether you’re craving Southern comfort food or a fresh new dish created by our culinary team, the dining experience at The Cliffs truly caters to any taste bud.


Nature takes center stage in the Carolina mountains –– and that is why our club membership puts the outdoors first and foremost. During the afternoon hours, head out to our private hiking and walking trails for a quiet walk through the private trails located within the community gates. These trails are pet-friendly, so be sure to bring your four-legged friends along for the journey. Or, you may grab a racquet and play a quick set of tennis or pickleball and catch up with your friends.

If you want to venture out of the community gates, you may consider exploring the region’s state parks. With many located just a short drive from each community, there are countless outdoor recreational opportunities you can enjoy including mountain biking, hiking, fishing, and more.

Or, you may choose to visit the charming mountain towns that surround our communities. Clemson, Greenville, Travelers Rest, and Asheville are all in the area and offer cafes, shopping, art galleries, and fine dining opportunities –– making for the perfect outing!       


As the sun begins to set over the horizon, it’s the perfect time to sit back and marvel at mother nature’s colorful display. Take a walk through The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards and enjoy a glass of wine through the fields of winding vines of native Muscadine. Or visit the private shores of Lake Keowee located within our community and enjoy the sounds of the gentle waves as you watch the sunset.

From Southern cuisine to one-of-a-kind dishes, the menus offer a wide selection of options that are handcrafted by our culinary team. Throughout the year, the menus are constantly updated, giving members something new to try every time they visit.
