Aug 10, 2020

Discover Golf at The Cliffs at Keowee Springs

When people hear about The Cliffs, golfing often comes to mind. Over the years, we have been able to craft an ideal golfing experience with help from some of the best golf course designers in the game, each incorporating their own unique style into their design, while staying true to the mountainous landscape.

In this post, we take a closer look at what makes the Keowee Springs golf course such an enjoyable experience at The Cliffs. From the tight-knit community to the small mountain towns just a short drive away, Keowee Springs does an excellent job of opening the door to all of the activities that make Carolina mountain life a dream come true.  

Keowee Springs Golf

Golfing at our featured golf course, Keowee Springs, provides a flexible experience for golfers because of its versatile design. Whether you’re short on time and want to get a quick round in, or need the versatility a set of family tees provides, this course has it all.

Course 

This course was designed by Tom Fazio, who some consider to be the greatest living golf architect alive today. With more than 50 years of experience, Fazio was able to not only capture the natural beauty of Upstate South Carolina, but to also make it an inviting course for players of all experience levels. 

Keowee Springs golf course consists of three loops of six holes each, allowing for shorter rounds of play if desired. There are also family tees at each hole, making for a fun game the whole family can enjoy. The mountainside layout and long-range lake views provide serene views throughout the course. 

Keowee Springs golf course is the perfect place to take your game to the next level, as it is home to the largest practice facility at The Cliffs. With a 6.5 acre driving range, an acre of practice tees, and short game and putting greens, you will see quick improvement with each swing. 

The Bistro at Keowee Springs

This is definitely not your typical golf course clubhouse. Located on a hilltop between the 6th, 12th and 18th holes, The Bistro at Keowee Springs is perfectly positioned for players to enjoy a quick snack in between holes or grab a post-game drink by the bar. 

The dining venue was renovated in 2018 to provide more space for members. During this time, The Bistro welcomed the addition of a double dining room, bar, and outdoor seating, perfect for enjoying the spectacular views of the golf course. The menu at The Bistro offers a new take on local Southern favorites created by our talented chefs.  

Nearby, The Porch at Keowee Springs houses a hybrid retail golf shop. Here members can find premium golf equipment, accessories and anything else they may need to play the perfect game. Additional amenities include a wellness boutique and watering hole.

The Community 

Keowee Springs, one of the fastest growing communities at The Cliffs, is located in The Lake Region. Just minutes away from Clemson, Keowee Springs has access to both the amenities of a charming college town and the simple pleasures of lake living. Not to mention the natural beauty of South Carolina’s Golden Corner, where you can find miles of hiking trails bringing you one step closer to the mountains. 

Overall, this community is known for being one of our most family-friendly communities with direct access to the Keowee Springs Beach Club and The Surf Shop. Here, families and friends gather to soak up the sun and enjoy the many water activities available to members. Days will be spent going down the water slides and doing cannonballs into the deep end. Trust us, the kids will never want to leave! 

Located at the water’s edge, The Surf Shop offers members other ways to enjoy all that Lake Keowee has to offer. There are kayaks and paddle boards available for use, as well as professionals ready to give wakeboarding and wakesurfing pointers before sending you out to enjoy your time on the water. And The Cliffs Watersports team offers on-boat instruction for all skills levels. 

Golf Membership at The Cliffs 

Being a golf member at The Cliffs opens up a world of possibilities. Enjoy the game on an entirely different level with access to seven premier golf courses, each offering a distinct style and feel. 

When you have finished your round at Keowee Springs, there are six other courses to conquer. Play on the mountain top at The Cliffs at Glassy or try out a link-style course at Mountain Park. But whatever style of play you’re in the mood for, you’ll be sure to find it at The Cliffs.

In addition to golf course access, golf membership includes access to all of the wellness amenities and activities offered at The Cliffs. Here, active-minded members can improve your strength and fitness with the expertise of highly trained coaches who are ready to give private training sessions tailored to your body’s needs. The wellness center also hosts group fitness classes for a lively and social way to stay fit. 

Along with these activities, The Cliffs has racquet sport courts, such as tennis and pickleball, that allow you to maintain your fitness in a fun and competitive way. And if you prefer a lower-impact sport, our facilities have indoor and outdoor swimming pools for swimming laps all year round.
