Amenities: Cliffs Club Members enjoy reciprocal golf, amenity, and dining privileges at all seven Cliffs communities.
Golf: When the Tom Jackson course made its debut in 1992, Golf Digest declared it the “Fourth Most Beautiful Course in the Nation.” The signature 13th hole, which appears to fall off into never land, is routed on a 3,000-foot plateau with a view that stretches unhindered for 50 miles. Winding up and down hillsides with undulating greens and rock cliff outcroppings, the bent grass course stays green throughout the winter, providing lush fairways year round. This award winning Tom Jackson design offers a high degree of challenge and an equal level of entertainment.
Clubhouse: At Glassy’s Clubhouse, enjoy annual events such as the Chili Cook-off and Member Art Exhibit, along with weekly events for members, such as fireside chats, Sunday brunches, concerts, mixers, and wine tastings.
