Endless Health and Wellness Activities at The Cliffs

Cliffs Living Wellness

Boomers in retirement desire long to live a healthy and active lifestyle. To stop the aging time clock and to feel better? Likely. This is why many retirees choose master-planned communities, where they can golf, play tennis, swim and take walks, and enjoy daily exercise routines with others. Folks find working out more enjoyable in a group or chic club atmosphere. There’s no better place to live for fitness and wellness than at The Cliffs’.

There are seven Cliffs communities in the Western Carolinas, all within 100 miles of each other. One membership provides members access to all seven communities. That’s seven fitness centers, seven golf courses, nine swimming pools, 22 tennis courts and more. From cardio classes at one of the seven wellness centers to outdoor hikes along a large diversity of hiking trails, the Cliffs’ offers a wide variety of wellness surrounded by the Blue Ridge mountains, scenic lakes and nature trails. 

Surrounded by the Blue Ridge mountains, scenic lakes and nature trails, The Cliffs’ takes wellness to a whole new standard of living. As a leader in health and wellness, they’ve attracted the finest wellness coaches such as George Hincapie who leads the cycling program and  Anna Claire Richardson who leads The Cliffs Exploration Series.

While no two Cliffs communities are alike, you'll find them all designed to the highest of principles - quality, comfort, safety, and style. And so whether you choose to live in The Cliffs at Walnut Cove (one of the best neighborhoods in Asheville), or The Cliffs Keowee Falls (with breathtaking nature trails), you'll cherish the pleasures that each gated community can offer. Here’s a quick glimpse:

GOLF - Anyone who knows The Cliffs knows the name is synonymous with world class golf. The Cliffs at Walnut Cove in Asheville is where you'll find a par-71 Jack Nicklaus designed championship golf course. This is the only course to ever debut with a PGA tour event. Set in a valley below the Blue Ridge Parkway, the views from the golf course are stunning. The Cliffs’ has seven unique championship golf courses, in case you want to play a different course each day of the week. The Cliffs’ wall of nationally recognized awards is impressive from organizations such as Golf Magazine. With mild temperatures throughout the Blue Ridge region, members can play on these top-rated golf courses all throughout the year. Golfers who appreciate world class golf can easily see why The Cliffs is among the best places to live in South Carolina. 

MOUNTAIN HIKING - The Cliffs at Mountain Park considered a modern hideaway at the edge of the Blue Ridge Mountains is where residents enjoy 1,000 acres of natural green space. Permanently protected, this land is perfect for outdoor pursuits and clean organic farming. For avid hikers, mountain community has an 8.5 mile trail system that includes 8 nature trails, and one "super trail" that is accessible by foot, bike or car. And on days when the weather isn't good for hiking trails, members now have a new workout venue. The Village at Mountain Park is an innovative new facility offering members of The Cliffs modern, movement-focused workout solutions and cutting-edge technology including the first Escape Fitness FunXtion machine in the U.S. — a highly advanced exercise system that lets members customize their workouts via a virtual personal trainer.  Hike at The Cliffs at Mountain Park or enjoy hiking trails at any of the seven communities. 

LAKE ACTIVITIES -  If you prefer boating and water sports, there’s always plenty to do along the shores of Lake Keowee in one of three Cliffs communities. Members can rent a canoe, kayak or paddleboard from the Marina at Keowee Vineyards or The Surf Shop at the Keowee Springs Beach Club. Wellness experts and outdoor guides also offer fitness classes on the water—such as stimulating and centering yoga classes atop paddleboards—or guided kayak and canoe tours of the shimmering lake. With so much to do on and around the water, 18,000 acre Lake Keowee is a natural wellness center in itself and is one of the best places to live in South Carolina.

TENNIS ACTIVITIES - Of the 22 tennis courts at The Cliffs’, 16 are premier Har-Tru clay courts. The courts are busy seven days a week.
