The Cliffs at Mountain Park

The Cliffs, a collection of seven private luxury mountain and lake communities, is included in Golf Digest’s 2017-2018 “Best in State” rankings. The publication honors the courses at four of The Cliffs’ communities, including Mountain Park, Keowee Vineyards and Keowee Falls in South Carolina, as well as Walnut Cove in North Carolina.

Set within the scenic backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains, each golf course at The Cliffs is member-friendly yet challenging and uniquely designed to complement its landscape and environment.

  •     The Cliffs at Mountain Park: The Gary Player Signature Course folds delicately into the topography of the land around it and features a walking terrain with fourteen holes along the North Saluda River.
  •     The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards: The Tom Fazio designed golf course reflects the natural beauty of the surrounding environment with eight holes overlooking Lake Keowee and five showcasing unparalleled views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
  •     The Cliffs at Keowee Falls: Designed by Jack Nicklaus, the 160-acre golf course stretches across mountainous terrain with numerous elevation changes, tree-lined fairways, streams, ponds and lengthy par 3s, all surrounded by woods and wildflowers.
  •     The Cliffs at Walnut Cove: Recognized by the PGA Tour as the only championship golf course to debut in tournament-ready conditions, the Jack Nicklaus designed golf course features five sets of tees, offering any player a wide variety of shot opportunities.

“It is an honor to have four of our seven courses acknowledged as Best in State by Golf Digest,” says David Sawyer, President of The Cliffs Clubs. “Our team is committed to providing our members with a well-rounded luxury lifestyle that focuses on wellness and we are thrilled to receive continued recognition for our spectacular and diverse golf program.”
