Everything you could want from a golf experience is here at The Cliffs — seven championship golf courses, member-friendly yet challenging and each uniquely designed to complement its landscape and environment. Climb 3,000 feet to the top of Glassy Mountain for panoramic 50-mile views. Play through vineyards and a along sparkling lake, beside a river and through protected woodlands. Whether parkland or links-style, walking or riding, on bentgrass and Bermuda or fescue, this is golf heaven on Earth.
Even if you typically prefer to play your home course, The Cliffs leaves no excuses for boredom. There are seven courses — that’s one for every day of the week — offering diverse play in breathtaking settings.
A picturesque, Tom Fazio-designed golf course with eight holes directly on Lake Keowee, named 7th Best Private Course in the Nation by Golf Digest.
A 160-acre Jack Nicklaus Design golf course, interspersed by a lovely creek and surrounded by woods, wildflowers and ravines.
A Tom Fazio Signature course for the whole family and players of all skill levels with three six-hole loops and an accompanying set of family tees.
A Tom Jackson-designed golf course featuring bent grass tees, greens and fairway, rated fourth most scenic course in the nation behind only Cypress Point, Pebble Beach and Augusta National.
The first American course designed by world-renowned golf commentator Ben Wright, an 18-hole, parkland-style championship golf course nestled in a lush, verdant valley.
A Gary Player links course set along the banks of the North Saluda River, featuring native grasses and landscaping with a backdrop of stunning mountain ridgelines.
The only championship golf course to have debuted with a PGA Tour event, a par-71 Jack Nicklaus Signature Design course that plays over rolling fields of former farmland.
Our temperate setting in the southern Blue Ridge Mountains means you can play on seven nationally-ranked courses just about every day of the year. With three clubs on the shores of shimmering Lake Keowee and four high up in the crisp mountain air — each home to a championship course designed by the greats of the game — there’s a different course every day, every season.
The Cliffs offers female members an unparalleled experience without any tee time or schedule restrictions — which remain common practice among many private golf clubs — as well as entertaining instruction in a laid-back environment for those new to golf, taking the intimidation out of learning the game. The Cliffs at Walnut Cove has proudly served as the home course for the inaugural University of North Carolina at Asheville women’s golf team, as well as host of the annual LPGA-USGA Girls Golf Academy, which teaches girls ages 6 – 13 both golf and leadership skills. In other words, The Cliffs remains committed to providing a modern experience for female golfers, and growing the game for all.
Kid-friendly courses, camps and special events give the whole family the gift of golf. Each summer, kids and teens gather for an exhilarating week of instruction, entertainment and more at golf camps throughout our communities, and Junior Club Championships give young golfers the chance to earn bragging rights throughout the year.
From annual Club Championships to holiday tournaments, Nine & Dine couples golf to nighttime Glow Golf, ladies’ Sassy Sixers to weekly men’s Early Risers and more, you’ll find opportunities to gather with fellow members and friends — and friendly competitors — on our seven courses.
And rest assured, back at the club you’ll find plenty to do beyond golf. A game of poker in the club room. A spectacular dining experience in the restaurant. A long lunch on the patio. A game of croquet on the lawn. Your club will become your home away from home, your fellow members sure to become fast friends.
