View The Solar Eclipse From The Great Lawn

After all the hype and hubbub, this once-in-a-lifetime event is almost upon us and our Members are ready!  The Orchard House will be hosting an Eclipse Party on Monday, August 21st from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. in The Pub and on the Great Lawn.   If you are familiar with our Great Lawn, this is an excellent location to view the Eclipse.  The event will include a light lunch buffet with “eclipse-worthy items,” a specialty cocktail, and most importantly, certified eclipse viewing glasses. The cost for the viewing party will be $24.95 per person. Limited seating will be arranged on the Great Lawn to allow for comfortable viewing. However, we recommend that you bring lawn chairs or blankets for your group, just to make sure you have a comfortable viewing setup.   Reservations are required for this event and the seating is limited.  Viewing glasses will be allocated in order of reservation. Any remaining glasses will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Additionally, remaining glasses will be sold at The Orchard House for $5.00 per pair beginning Monday morning at 9:00 a.m.

Since we are truly blessed with one of the best locations in the state to view the Eclipse, in addition to our party on the Great Lawn, some of our Members have also organized a group of almost 50 boats to enjoy the Eclipse on Lake Keowee.  This is the same group that goes out on the lake each month for a full moon cruise.


If you are planning to attend the party on the Great Lawn, Reserve Members can make reservations by calling the Concierge at 864-869-2105.
