Set on the shores of stunning Lake Keowee amid thousands of acres of state and national parkland, hundreds of miles of trails, and numerous lakes, rivers, and waterfalls, Keowee Falls is a luxurious lake living community, where a healthy lifestyle will be part of your daily routine.
Unique to Keowee Falls, all property owners can enjoy the superb Sports, Activity and Wellness Park, including a fully-loaded gym, resort-style pool, spa services, four Har-Tru lighted tennis courts, a track and walking trailes, playing field, putting green, waterfall, and more.
Cliffs Club Members enjoy reciprocal golf and dining privileges at all seven Cliffs communities.
Named one of Golf Magazine’s Top Ten new private courses when it opened, the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course lives up to its acclaim. 160 acres provide 7,171 yards of challenge on this par-72 course, which has several holes that play alongside picturesque Falls Creek. The most enticing features of the course are the greens and green complexes, which in true Nicklaus Signature form, are undulating and surrounded by bunkers, bail-out areas, and false fronts-sure to please moderate and low handicapper alike.
With new Bermuda grass greens recently constructed as part of a million-dollar enhancement, Keowee Falls now has the newest and most up-to-date greens of any Cliffs golf course. In addition to re-contouring, the new greens are drought, heat, and cold resistant.
Capturing panoramic views of scenic Falls Creek and 10 of the Nicklaus Signature Golf Course’s 18 holes, the 28,000 square foot Keowee Falls Clubhouse is sure to delight Cliffs Club Members and their guests. Whether you’re dining fireside on the grand terrace or relaxing in the rocking chairs after a round of golf, the well-appointed Clubhouse is the hub of Falls life. It is where friends and family come together to view sunsets, celebrate special occasions, or simply enjoy life-all while savoring delectable Blue Ridge cuisine that changes seasonally.
A new, $3MM Sports, Activity, and Wellness Park was completed in 2015. The Park, which is conveniently located close to the Keowee Falls Clubhouse and golf course, includes a Wellness Center with a fully-loaded gym and resort-style pool, spa services, four lighted Har-Tru tennis courts, basketball courts, a yoga or relaxation pavilion near a waterfall, a track, playing field, putting green, lawn bowling, and more. The Sports, Activity and Wellness Park is open to all levels of Cliffs membership holders and Keowee Falls South property owners.
One of a few private park and relaxation areas within the community, this park’s namesake is a spring-fed cascade of pure water-Falls Creek-which tumbles into Lake Keowee. The adjacent beach and warm cove are perfect for “floating” on a summer’s day or enjoying the company of friends and neighbors. At the entrance to the park there is a picnic area, complete with tables set alongside a cascading river.
Looking like a European mountain village, this shopping center at the entrance to Keowee Falls is home to Keowee Towne Market Café. The Café is known for gourmet sandwiches, pizza, and other delectable treats to enjoy inside, out on the patio, or take home. A grocery section offers a surprising selection of staples, a fine selection of wine and beer, meats, fish, cheeses, fresh flowers, and unique, locally inspired gift items. A liquor store completes your planning needs with one-stop shopping. For 2019, a pharmacy is planned and will join a pre-existing real estate office, builder/architect and financial planning company.
Keowee Falls offers over 10 miles of trails along the pristine shores of Lake Keowee. Visit picnic areas, fishing holes, and waterfalls, including Keowee Falls, the largest waterfall on the lake.
Set aside the Blue Ridge Mountains and on one of the most beautiful lakes in the Southeast, Keowee Springs is just 44 miles from the airport in award winning Greenville, SC; very convenient for traveling to and from the area and for out of town guests.
With green spaces, trails, and parks, The Springs offers a scenic, rugged beauty in a luxurious lake living community.
Cliffs Club Members enjoy reciprocal golf, amenity, and dining privileges at all seven Cliffs communities.
The beauty of the Cliffs at Keowee Springs is a perfect canvas for the creative talent of course designer Tom Fazio. Here, Mr. Fazio illustrates his award-winning genius with a design that meets the turn house eatery after hole 6 and again after hole 12. An extensive practice area allocates two acres to short game practice, including two chipping areas and a massive putting green in addition to a driving range with tree lined fairway views for more stimulating practice. The course offers a family tee (the perfect introduction to the game for children or neophytes), and also boasts a championship back tee to challenge even the most experienced players. In fact, there are several tees to choose from so you can play the same course from a variety of lengths. If you think the course is open and easy, just move back a set of tees! Another nice feature of course is that it is easily walkable.
The Springs Clubhouse offers a well-designed combination of retail, wellness, and light dining. The Porch Bar is an inviting place to enjoy a light meal from “The Bistro” and drinks any time of day. The Pro Shop boasts a resort selection of clothing, not limited to golf attire. The Wellness area allows you to take in the practice area views, while working on your health and watching others shave a few strokes off their handicap.
This newly remodeled eatery is located at the junction of holes 6 and 12, making stopping for refreshment very convenient, while enjoying a day of golf. After the game, the Bistro is also perfect for a dinner spent socializing with neighborhood friends, as well as enjoying pleasing golf course views and the Bistro’s menu.
Anchored by a comfortable, sunshade pavilion, the two water recreation areas that comprise the Beach Club include a family pool with a two water slides, a white sand beach, a water sports area, and a lap pool for exercise classes and adult lap swimming. Boat slips are available at the Beach Club for those wishing to access the complex via Lake Keowee. Food and beverage service is available during summer months.
The Vineyards and Springs marinas are conveniently located to both the south and north ends of the lake, allowing boaters and kayakers the opportunity to explore the 18,500 spring-fed acres of waterfalls, cliffs, deserted islands ringed with beaches, and fish-filled inlets. On Lake Keowee, you can tube, ski, wakeboard, or simply drift the day away, enjoying a picnic with friends.
The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards is a mature, amenity rich community, perfect for lovers of pristine Lake Keowee, the beauty of the mountains, world-class golf, equestrian, and more.
Hole 17 on the Tom Fazio Signature Course ranked as the toughest on the Nationwide Tour in 2005, but it’s more than just challenging; as designer, Tom Fazio, said, “This hole may be the most picturesque in the state of South Carolina-and some people will say it’s the most picturesque ever.”
Cliffs Club Members enjoy reciprocal golf, amenity, and dining privileges at all seven Cliffs communities.
A masterpiece of natural beauty, the Tom Fazio Signature Golf Course was hailed by Golf Digest as the “7th best private course in the nation.” The course features 9 holes directly on Lake Keowee, including the famed #17. Winding its way through the community, the course creates a park-like atmosphere throughout, with lake views on nine holes. The Vineyards golf course is one that can be played daily, where the player will never become bored or tired of these beautifully designed holes. Multiple tee decks offer a challenge for the player of every skill level.
The spacious and inviting Vineyards Clubhouse overlooks the attractive Tom Fazio Signature Golf Course. Casual dining is available in the Clubhouse Pub and on the spectacular patio. Speaking of the patio, in 2018, The Vineyards club opened the Al Fresco Kitchen and wood fired pizza oven and bar, for outside dining and casual enjoyment. This $130,000 project was funded primarily through the efforts of Vineyards property owners with financial and other assistance from The Cliffs Clubs. Inside the clubhouse, the dining room and private dining area feature large stone fireplaces, along with award-winning cuisine. The private dining area is perfect for birthdays or other special events, and you can leave the planning (and cooking) to the Club and focus on enjoying yourself. At the Vineyards and Falls one can also arrange in-home catering and private functions supplied by the talented clubhouse and kitchen teams. In-house parties are becoming a popular event in our communities, where the food prep, cooking, serving and CLEAN UP(!) is left to talented club staff’s hands, and the host and hostess can simply enjoy their friend’s company.
Overlooking stunning Lake Keowee, The Vineyards Wellness Center features Life Fitness equipment, a cardio room, golf-specific Free Motion equipment, individual spa/therapy rooms, two lighted Har-Tru tennis courts, a ball machine for practice, a snack kitchen, and a member lounge with a fireplace. A full-time fitness director and on-call message therapists enhances The Vineyards wellness experience.
In addition to essentials needed for a great day out on the water, the Ship’s Store at the marina has a snack bar open all year, as well as rental boats, pontoons, kayaks, and canoes. Wet slips, dry storage, a fuel dock, a private beach, vehicle gas pump and boat launch are also available. Next to the marina, an outdoor pool and cabana share a breathtaking spot right on the edge of Lake Keowee.
