Keowee Vineyards Golf 

Deemed among the “Best in the State” by Golf Digest, the Keowee Vineyards golf course captures picturesque views of the water and surrounding mountains. As players make their way through the award-winning course, they will be given a spectacular lakeside golfing experience.  


Tom Fazio designed Keowee Vineyards to accentuate the shimmering waters of Lake Keowee. Eight holes overlook the water, the most spectacular being the par 3 17th, which plunges dramatically into the lake. Fazio himself says it’s the most beautiful hole he’s designed in the Carolinas. 

Along with the striking views, the golf course has Bermuda grass tees and fairways with Champion Ultra-dwarf Bermuda greens that are kept in flawless condition throughout the seasons. With tree-lined fairways and hidden coves tucked into Lake Keowee, the course is designed on one of the most beautiful areas in Upstate South Carolina.


After a long round of golf, players can spend time unwinding with a cocktail at the stunning 20,000-square-foot clubhouse. This spectacular gathering point offers lockers and lounges, as well as a fine dining experience overlooking the premier golf course. Here, our culinary team creates decadent dishes  — the al fresco pizza kitchen is a family favorite! 

The clubhouse also boasts a lovely porch overlooking the 18th green. In the evenings, members can be found here catching up with family and friends as the sun sets over the Carolina mountains.
