Thor Guard announced it is further enhancing the safety of The Cliffs community.

Thor Guard's lightning prediction and warning system has been installed in all seven properties, reducing the danger of lightning strikes by predicting the occurrence of lightning eight to 20 minutes before it could potentially hit. The system will cover upwards of 200 acres across The Cliffs’ facilities, protecting the golf and tennis amenities, the lake and all residential homes.

“We are honored to have been chosen by The Cliffs to install our system and provide reliable and accurate advance warning of adverse weather conditions,” said Bob Dugan, President of Thor Guard. “As the meteorological-solutions pioneer, we play a vital role in protecting the safety of communities across the world and hold this as our No. 1 priority.”

Located along the border of North and South Carolina, The Cliffs are luxury private club communities, each hosting a nationally-ranked golf course. Thor Guard systems are currently installed at the following courses:
-- The Cliffs at Glassy
-- The Cliffs Valley
-- The Cliffs at Walnut Cove
-- The Cliffs at Mountain Park
-- The Cliffs at Keowee Vineyards
-- The Cliffs at Keowee Falls
-- The Cliffs at Keowee Springs

“At The Cliffs, we will always invest in proven-technology that allows us to keep our members, staff and guests safe,” says Brian Peeples, director of golf operations at The Cliffs. “We feel Thor Guard and its state-of-the-art technology is the undisputed industry leaders, and we would only equip our properties with the best weather-protection system available.”
