Your Guide to the Mountain Park Golf Course

Golfing is more than just a game, it’s an experience. At The Cliffs, we strive to offer our members a world-class golfing experience every single time they step foot on one of our seven courses. Each golf course is designed to create a distinct feeling, and The Course at Mountain Park is no exception. 

From The Cabin clubhouse to the practice facilities, there are carefully placed details throughout the course that bring the mountain spirit to life. This course embodies the rustic and authentic nature of Carolina mountain life at The Cliffs.

The Community 

The Cliffs at Mountain Park is located in The Mountain Region. With more than 2,000 acres of private mountain land to explore, members will be able enjoy the natural environment in a peaceful way. Hiking, mountain biking and fishing in the North Saluda River or stocked Greene Pond are just the beginning of the adventure of life in this community.

Mountain Park is also well connected to towns in the area, like Hendersonville and Greenville. This makes it easy to spend a day strolling through the charming streets. The Cliffs at Mountain Park is also just minutes away from the two other communities in The Mountain Region: The Cliffs at Glassy and The Cliffs Valley

The Course at Mountain Park 

Named one of the Best New Modern Courses by GOLF Magazine, The Cliffs at Mountain Park creates a golfing experience like no other. 

About the Course 

The Cliffs at Mountain Park was designed by Gary Player, known in the golfing world as the Black Knight. His course design career is nearly as impressive as his golfing career, having designed  hundreds of courses on five continents. At Mountain Park, he used Diamond Zoysia fairways and greens of MiniVerde™ Ultra Dwarf Bermuda to create the course, all while staying true to the mountain landscape that surrounds the land. 

The Player Design team designed the Mountain Park golf course in such a way that keeps the cart paths almost entirely hidden, providing a golf experience that’s as natural as they come. Lined with native grasses, rolling mounds and sandy beds, this course is distinctly rustic and authentic. As one of the more walkable courses at The Cliffs, who needs golf carts anyway? 

One of the defining features of this course is the meandering river that weaves through the majority of the course. With 14 of the 18 holes located along a river, this adds an additional element to the already challenging sport. So, don’t forget to pack a few extra golf balls in your bag. 

The course also offers acres of land dedicated to improving all areas of your game. An unconventional way to practice your aim is by trying to hit the welded barrels and farm equipment that are nestled in the grass as targets. There is also a two-sided teeing green and chipping and putting area to practice other important parts of your game.

Clubhouse

Known as The Cabin at Mountain Park, the clubhouse is an enjoyable place for members to gather, unwind and take in the magnificent views of the course just outside. Designed with exposed wooden beams and a large fireplace, these rustic elements make the space feel like home. 

The Cabin is a place to grab a drink at the long bar with friends or gather for dinner at the restaurant. The restaurant’s menu is filled with contemporary dishes made with freshest ingredients, most of which are local. Some even come from our very own garden at Stage 22 Farm by Hotel Domestique at The Cliffs, located only a few minutes away.

Be sure to keep your eyes out for the two loving bloodhounds, Copper and Shugar, that call The Cabin home. These dogs add to the rustic charm of this Clubhouse and brighten everyone’s day as they stroll around the wrap-around porch. 

Tournaments 

After spending hours and hours practicing each of your swings, why not put your skills to the test? The Cliffs at Mountain Park is home to a number of fun competitions throughout the year. Two of the most popular golf tournaments among members that are held at Mountain Park are The Links Invitational and Night Golf.
