Grand views of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains and over 30 miles of shoreline on the majestic Lake Keowee set the stage for this exquisite 3,900 acre private waterfront community.

In these quiet hills, along our picturesque shores, awaits your best life. Few corners of the world are as untouched and lush as Lake Keowee—even fewer are as inviting to live, to play, and to enjoy. The Reserve is where families and friends come together and where generations bond.

Established by Greenwood Communities and Resorts in 2000, The Reserve at Lake Keowee is a private waterfront golf community which sits along the shores of one of the most impressive lakes in the Southeast. Boasting over 18,000 acres of clean waters and some 300 miles of coastline, Lake Keowee is a wide bodied, picturesque lake encapsulated by the expansive foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was designed to harness the lake’s natural beauty and resources in order to create the ultimate setting for the sports enthusiast and outdoor adventurer. For this reason, The Reserve is the ideal community for golfing, boating, fishing, water skiing, swimming, hiking, and exploring . There’s truly something for everyone.

    Once inside the gates, our signature golf course becomes the focal point of the community as it meanders down toward the lake from the clubhouse. This 18-hole course has a dynamic, masterfully designed layout that pays homage to the secluded nature of the community with its sloping terrain, lake and mountain views, and embelished with mature hardwood forests.

    par for the course

    Jack Nicklaus placed his signature on The Reserve with a 7,112-yard masterpiece along the emerald waters of Lake Keowee with soaring views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. As one of the most popular private golf courses in South Carolina, warmer winters and cooler summers are par for the course here. Be ready to enjoy year-round golf and over-size, including a mobile shade canopy, short game area and putting green. We have also begun construction on our new practice facility to be completed later in the year.

    In addition, we offer a Pro Shop, men’s and women’s lounge and locker rooms.

  • We were given a magnificent canvas on which to work, so I think you could say I really co-designed the course with Mother Nature
