Founding Story

The Cliffs was founded in the early 1990s as a private residential community focused on golf. Fast forward to today, and The Cliffs includes seven luxury club communities spanning the Carolina Blue Ridge Mountains. By taking a modern approach to private club living, residents not only enjoy seven nationally-recognized golf courses but thrilling new experiences - from guided rides in the mountains led by former pro cyclists to high-end sporting activities such as axe throwing, archery and e-foiling. Today, The Cliffs is under the ownership of South Street Partners; also in the South Street Partners portfolio are Palmetto Bluff, the Residences at Salamander, and Kiawah Island Real Estate + the Kiawah Island Club.
