From 3,200 feet atop Glassy Mountain there are awe-inspiring, panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, protected forests and verdant valleys — for 75 miles or more on a clear day.
But the views are only the beginning. Golfers challenge themselves on a hillside course ranked as the fourth most scenic in the nation. Gorgeous gathering places invite people to socialize, celebrate or shape up — our fit and active community embraces wellness with workouts in incomparable settings. Steeped in local history, this welcoming community continues to respect and pay tribute to the heritage of Glassy Mountain.
South Carolina’s only mountaintop golf course, the Glassy golf course sits at 3,200 feet with majestic 50-mile views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The course has been ranked fourth most scenic in the nation — behind only Cypress Point, Pebble Beach and Augusta National — and when you arrive at the iconic 13th hole, you’ll understand why.
Glassy residents show a particular passion for yoga, which is held at the 15,000-square foot Wellness Center as well as outdoors at Glassy Chapel with the peerless Blue Ridge Mountains as a backdrop. Families and sport swimmers alike will enjoy the Olympic-sized outdoor swimming pool, and The Cliffs at Glassy tennis courts are lighted for both day and evening play.
The 23,000-square foot Glassy Clubhouse offers fine, casual and al fresco dining overlooking the mountaintop golf course. Whether stopping in for a casual lunch or a formal meal, you’ll enjoy mouthwatering creations by our award-winning chef.
Set at the edge of the mountain looking out at 75-mile views of the valley around it, the glass-enclosed Glassy Chapel provides a perfect setting for the spiritual and the celebratory. Residents may enjoy weekly, non-denominational services or also revel in special concerts by talented local performers, from string and woodwind groups, to vocal soloists and choirs, to jazz trios. The Glassy Chapel is also an idyllic spot for intimate wedding ceremonies and has been frequently featured in wedding magazines.
The Sunset Pavilion just next door is an open-air retreat that provides the perfect natural backdrop for cocktails with friends, quiet moments of reflection and weekly member potluck dinners.
Glassy is home to a warm and welcoming community of members that are sure to become fast friends. Join your fellow members for weekly potluck dinners atop the mountain, monthly birthday celebrations, mixers and more. When you want to venture outside, catch a breath of fresh mountain air on a hike or mountain bike ride along several miles of trails with views that will leave you breathless.
Hand select a homesite on which to build the house of your dreams, or purchase a home already available. Homesites, starting at $25,000, offer magnificent mountain views or locations just steps off the golf course. If you’d rather buy than build, homes start at $225,000 and you’re certain to find the home that suits you and your family.
