6 Ways to Enjoy Spring at The Cliffs 

Apr 19, 2021

Wonderful Spring Events to Look Forward to at The Cliffs 

Spring has sprung at The Cliffs, and as a club member, this means you have the world at your fingertips. The sunny weather coupled with the outstanding amenities make for a wonderful time of year. 

This spring, we encourage you to join in on our community events and get to know your fellow members. Although this past year has been life-changing, each community is still taking precautions to keep you safe –– all the while providing you with the same experiences and service you can always look forward to.

With so many events to choose from, here are the top spring events happening at The Cliffs. 

1. Lose Yourself Among the Wildflowers

The natural beauty that can be found at The Cliffs is unlike any other. The landscape is serene, and you can’t help but let it pull you in. In the springtime, as the weather warms and the skies turn blue, thousands of wildflowers blossom. Overnight, the once-empty fields suddenly explode with color. To strengthen the inevitable connection between man and nature, we offer once-in-a-lifetime events, including our guided wildflower tours for the budding botanist. 

Club Members have the opportunity to join The Cliff’s Outdoor Pursuits Team, along with Bruce Lampright on the Appalachian Lumber Trail in Nine Times Preserve for a special guided tour of the landscape. Bruce Lampright is a renowned former Master Naturalist Instructor who helped found the SC Master Naturalist Program at Clemson University. He has a passion for teaching members how to identify the first of many colorful wildflowers that spring provides. 

2. Get Out on the Water

Living at The Cliffs means there’s no shortage of water access. Whether you live lakeside, or you prefer to hike to a waterfall, getting out on the water is just one more way to connect with nature that surrounds you. 

The Jocassee Gorges are some of the most biologically diverse areas of the planet, and they’re located right outside your back door. The landscape’s palette is ever-changing, and April is a great time to see the fleeting wildflowers blooming. By the third Thursday in April, bald eagle chicks are commonly spotted! Residents of The Cliffs have a rare chance to see magnificent wildlife up close and personal thanks to the various tours of Jocassee’s stunning waterfalls and lake.

3. Wander the Miles of Trails

Miles and miles of trails leading in and out of each community at The Cliffs offers you the opportunity to hike or bike at your own pace. Ask any of our residents who live here, staying active has never been easier. But why not turn your outing into an opportunity to socialize?

Deep in the Pisgah National Forest is a two-mile loop with pretty views and a little bit of climb. Regular guided hikes are available here each month for members to sign up. The trail meanders along scenic areas and a creek while giving you an excellent, heart-pumping workout. 

4. See Life from a New Point of View

Club members are privy to experiencing all sorts of new adventures — just one of many perks of living here at The Cliffs. 

For example, members can experience the tranquility of floating over the Blue Ridge Mountains in a peaceful hot air balloon ride. The fun begins early in the morning where you can chase the sunrise and take in the spectacular views as you float above Asheville! Unique tours and excursions such as these are regularly offered to members as a way to experience new adventures not far from home.

5. Master the Art of Golf

As a premier golf community with some of the top courses in the country, The Cliffs holds regular golf events to encourage camaraderie among members. Yearly events include the beloved Dine and Dash, featuring two exciting play formats over the course of several days. At the end of each day, players can look forward to various food stations with different menu items and paired drinks.

Members can also take advantage of periodic demo days and fittings by some of the top brands in the industry. This spring, club members can partake in the TaylorMade Fitting and Demo Day being held at The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards practice facility. Our club members will get exclusive access to product launches such as a new iron range, utilities, putters, and wedges. 

6. Hop in the Saddle

The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards is the ideal place to live for the equestrian. Whether you enjoy trail rides or compete regularly, the state-of-the-art community barn is the perfect place for your horses. Aside from riding in the arenas, you can join your fellow riders for a group outing each month. Get to know your neighbors during the post-ride happy hour for the adults with beer, wine, and hors d’oeuvres back at the barn. What’s more, members from any community are able to join on these trail rides, too!
