The first of The Cliffs communities, The Cliffs at Glassy is perched high atop Glassy Mountain. Gather on the mountaintop to celebrate life’s blessings and gaze upon the treasure that Glassy affords — 75-mile views on a clear day. The breathtaking Tom Jackson golf course has been recognized as the fourth most scenic in America (behind only Cypress Point, Pebble Beach and Augusta National), and when you arrive on the signature 13th hole, you’ll understand why.

The 23,000-square-foot Glassy Clubhouse offers fine, casual and al fresco dining overlooking the mountaintop golf course. Whether stopping in for a casual lunch or a formal meal, you’ll enjoy mouthwatering creations by an award-winning chef.

At the Wellness Center, the fitness room is equipped with treadmills, elliptical trainers, rower, stair climbers, stationary cycles, strength conditioning machines, and free weights. There is also a group exercise room with state-of-the-art Pavigym shock-absorbent flooring. For a more relaxing day at the Wellness Center, spa services are available that consist of massages, facials, reiki, and more.  Some of the specialty services are body age assessments, nutrition and lifestyle consultations, personal training, sports performance programs, orthotics, and more. Cool off after a great workout in the community's outdoor swimming pool.

Perched at the peak of the 3,200-foot Glassy Mountain is the iconic Glassy Chapel and Overlook Pavilion. Members gather for special services or concerts at the chapel and weekly potluck dinners at the pavilion..

Best of all, from the moment you join, all The Cliffs has to offer is yours. One club membership at The Cliffs grants access to seven communities from the shores of Lake Keowee to the mountains just outside Asheville, including an unparalleled collection of seven nationally-acclaimed golf courses, more than a dozen dining venues and a stellar beverage team of twelve sommeliers, outdoor adventure specialists to guide you through our Blue Ridge Mountain majesty and more.

Property Owner Reviews

Property Owner: Dick
Having evaluated and visited all the other Cliffs Communities my wife and I chose Glassy mountain. Since purchasing our lot, building our home and meeting many new neighbors, we are convinced that calling our community the Happiest is an understatement. Friendships, shared values, common interests, fun social events and sincerity define our community.

Residents care about each other and communicate well. It is a neighborhood that gives to the surrounding community with school mentors and holiday family charity projects. There is a 14 year-old tradition of a week-long summer camp experience for all resident grandchildren - creating a festive happy family time each year.

The people here take great care of one another. They are quick to lend a hand whenever they even get a whiff of someone in need or going through a hard time. They rally together to create playgrounds, camps and special events for their collective grandkids, while supporting local school kids in need with books, ipads, food, tutoring and cash.

Property Owner Reviews

Property Owner: Christine
Happiness and contentment go hand in hand. When your needs are met you are content. Whatever your interest or activity level Glassy has it. A diverse number of interest groups from canasta, to bridge, to book groups, to chorale groups, to hiking groups. Glass has the largest community of full-time residents who support each other and the club. You never have to leave the mountain if you don't want to. We have a great wellness center, outstanding dining at the clubhouse, and challengingly beautiful golf course all staffed by amazing and supportive people. But if you want off mountain activities they abound nearby in Greenville or Traveller's Rest; from mentally stimulating classes at extremely reasonably prices at the Osher Learning and Retirement Center (OLLI) at Furman University, world class music and theater including but not limited to the Peace Center and Bon Secours Center, a thriving restaurant community for the foodie or family oriented diner, a vibrant arts and horse community just across the border in Tryon,NC. the thriving arts community and diverse restaurants in Hendersonville and Asheville. Easy airline travel access from GSP - well obviously I could go on and on.
