The Cliffs at Glassy

This is where it all began.

High peaks and craggy nooks that were once home to bootleggers of Carolina Dark Corner fame, Glassy Mountain is today home to a rich and colorful new chapter — The Cliffs at Glassy. Today, members gather on the mountaintop to celebrate life’s blessings and gaze upon the treasure that Glassy affords — 75-mile views on a clear day. One visit and all immediately understand why this special place was chosen as the home for The Cliffs’ original community.

Unparalleled mountaintop living


    The Cliffs at Glassy is South Carolina’s only mountaintop golf course and absolutely its most spectacular. Crowning Glassy Mountain at 3,200 feet, its majestic 75-mile views are rivaled only by Cypress Point, Pebble Beach and Augusta National — and when you arrive at the signature 13th hole, you’ll understand why.


    The Cliffs at Glassy takes food and wine very seriously. From decadent brunches to exquisite dinners to festive private events, the menu seasonally changes offering dishes as awe-inspiring as the views from the grand Clubhouse.


    There’s a particular passion for yoga on Glassy Mountain, and class may convene at the 15,000-square-foot Wellness Center or in the fresh air next to the mountaintop Glassy Chapel. Families and sport swimmers take to the water in an Olympic-sized swimming pool, and the lighted pickleball and tennis courts are playable day and night, all year-round.


    Perched at the peak of the 3,200-foot Glassy Mountain are iconic venues just steps apart that some would say are also just steps from heaven. Members gather for special services or concerts at the iconic Glassy Chapel, or for weekly potlucks and casual cocktail hours at the nearby Overlook Pavilion.
