A challenging and rewarding experience for golfers of all ages and skill levels, the Keowee Springs golf course is one of Tom Fazio’s most scenic and uniquely designed courses, and was described by WorldGolf. com as “one of the most versatile designs in Fazio’s award-winning repertoire. ” Completed in 2008, it incorporates three approachable loops of six holes and a set of family tees, designed to play six or 12 holes when time is tight (such as when you've got a date with some water skis later in the day). These more approachable courses are favorites for our groups of golf beginners at The Cliffs, who call themselves the Sassy Sixers (for ladies) and the Mac Daddies (for men).
The course combines Bermuda grass fairways and rough with Tif-Eagle tee areas and 007 Bentgrass greens across a gentle, rolling mountainside layout, with long-range views of Lake Keowee. Though it’s designed to accommodate families and beginning players, experienced golfers should be prepared: the back tees are every bit the championship golf experience.
