Teed Up | Cliffs at Glassy
The Cliffs at Glassy is a private residential commu- nity in upstate South Carolina with a truly spec- tacular centerpiece golf course. Set atop Glassy
Mountain at elevations up to 3,200 feet, the panoramic
views of Blue Ridge peaks and lush highland valleys are
simply stunning. A little warmer in the winter sunshine
and definitely even milder in summer than the surrounding protected woodlands, the red-and-gold autumn
scenery up there is as cool as the crisp mountain air.
Insider tip: Bring your binoculars.
The Cliffs at Glassy layout isn’t just another pretty face.
Course architect Tom Jackson designed it so that proud
members and their awed guests could put up a good
score from the forward tees, while scratch players find
plenty of worthy challenges from the tournament tees
on the flawless bentgrass fairways and greens. Afterward, everyone can enjoy socializing in the member
clubhouse over a gourmet dinner following refreshments and another glorious sunset.
Once in a while, bursting out of our virtual cocoons and
savoring the actual experience of a magical place can be
a very healthy enterprise. The Cliffs at Glassy is inviting
you to do just that with a Discovery Tour package this
season that includes accommodations, dinner, and one
unforgettable round of mountain golf. The details are
available at GlassyLiving.com.
