This Year at The Cliffs — A Look Back at 2017

Join us as we reflect on the exciting events, recognitions, announcements and more that shaped 2017 at The Cliffs…

The Cliffs at Mountain Park wellness center

In January we unveiled the new high-tech Wellness Center at The Cliffs at Mountain Park— helping our members and residents stick to those New Year’s Resolutions with functional fitness programming and innovative equipment.

Another exciting moment for Mountain Park, our newest community’s rustic, relaxed take on the traditional golf clubhouse — The Cabin — won the prestigious Golden Fork Award from Golf Inc. magazine.

The Grain recognized The Cliffs as “the Carolinas’ best,” lauding our stellar setting, four-season climate and unparalleled collection of amenities.

Hot off the heels of the 2017 Clemson Invitational, we were delighted to announce that The Cliffs at Keowee Falls, in partnership with the Clemson Men’s Golf team, was selected to host the NCAA Men’s Division I Golf Regional Championship May 18-20, 2020. 

Ride with George Cliffs Cycling

In May, Cliffs members joined 17-time Tour de France finisher (and The Cliffs’ Director of Cycling) George Hincapie for the first ‘Ride with George’ of the year — a charming, yet challenging ride through beautiful Travelers Rest.

The Cliffs at Mountain Park, Keowee Vineyards and Keowee Falls courses were recognized among the ‘Best in State’ for South Carolina by Golf Digest, as well as The Cliffs at Walnut Cove in North Carolina.

World champion wakeboarder Abby Delgoffe joined us this summer for two exhilarating weekends on the water, including small group clinics, private lessons and astonishing demos.

Austin Ernst

The Cliffs LPGA Ambassador Austin Ernst competed in the 2017 Solheim Cup in Des Moines, Iowa and helped Team USA bring home the Cup!

The Cliffs Valley golf course made its debut in 1995 and has been a member favorite ever since. The first American course designed by renowned golf broadcaster Ben Wright, The Cliffs Valley underwent a 15-week, half-million dollar renovation and reopened in September. 

Creekside Farm at Walnut Cove

Walnut Cove’s newest neighborhood is Creekside Farm, a new release of 18 exclusive homesites overlooking a century-old, working 60-acre farm.

In November we announced the Golf Ridge Cottages, an exclusive enclave of homes perched atop a picturesque ridgeline at the Southernmost edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains where natural splendor meets effortless living.

For the sixth consecutive year, The Cliffs was recognized among the top residential courses in America by Golfweek magazine.
