The Cliffs, a collection of seven private mountain and lake club communities in the western Carolinas, announced the reopening of The Cliffs Valley golf course after a 15-week renovation. Nestled amid the Blue Ridge Mountains, the course rejoins a roster of acclaimed golf courses at each of The Cliffs’ seven communities.
Designed by Cliffs member and renowned golf broadcaster Ben Wright, the parkland-style course follows the land’s natural contours and elevation changes, challenging members to play over and around streams, ponds and rolling hills. The $500,000 overhaul included conversion of all golf putting surfaces to Champion Bermudagrass as well as the addition of one fairway bunker, one greenside bunker and expanding two fairway bunkers.
“Nestled in its lush namesake, The Cliffs Valley course enjoys a unique climate that makes it playable virtually every day of the year. That, coupled with its playable, parkland-style design makes it a member favorite,” says Brian Peeples, director of golf operations at The Cliffs. “We are thrilled with the results of this renovation and are delighted to bring this course back into play. Our team is grateful to Ben Wright, who was an integral part in the redesign, developing a new, unique experience for our members.”
