Golf by Jack Nicklaus
The golf course at The Reserve at Lake Keowee was designed by Jack Nicklaus and opened in 2002. Nicklaus utilized the topography of the land and allowed the course to follow the natural contours of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains.
A par-72, 18-hole course that stretches 7,112 yards, it provides challenging play for all skill levels. “The course creates a natural gathering spot in the heart of The Village,” says Nicklaus, “and offers dramatic lake and mountain views that players will remember long after the last putt.”
The Reserve at Lake Keowee, SC: Real estate from $100,000.
Real estate opportunities at The Reserve at Lake Keowee range from cottage and village homes to custom and estate homes, on the lakefront or on mountain, golf course, or nature homesites.
