The view from Currahee’s Signature Hole overlooking Lake Hartwell and the Blue Ridge Mountains may steal your breath away. On a clear day, you can see three States from its mountain golf course. The course offers incredible elevation changes and dramatic mountain topography. The Currahee Club has one of the most impressive golf clubhouses we’ve seen in southern inspired communities. Mirroring a Rocky Mountain lodge, the 48,000 square foot golf clubhouse has soaring ceilings, cozy stone fireplaces and elegant dining areas both inside and out.
