Course was very interesting and had challenges for all types of players. Tee boxes were the biggest flaw for the course. Fairways were pretty dry; however it hadn't rained in almost two weeks when I played. That being said, the greens were in good condition and rolled at a fast pace. Would highly recommend playing here if a "hot deal" comes up.

Really shocked at how poor the condition of the fairways were. This used to be one of the premier off island courses in the low country. Greens and bunkers were in great shape but the fairways were a real mess. Maybe they are struggling post Mathew. Too bad. Sorry

Challenging course for us but we enjoyed playing it. Be prepared to sharpen your sand play during the round unless you have a low handicap. We thought is was a great value compared to others we've played (10-12 over the years).

This course shows it's age. Over the past 10 years the conditions have slowly gone downhill. Nevertheless it is a fun play. A few of the holes have blind features, like wide ditches. The greens are good with some slopping, but not severe.

Great layout, approach very important. 25 yards either side of the 150 mark is a good fair test. I'm going to play this course several times this season. Wish the course was in better shape for this time of the season.

Very poor condition for the amount paid through Golf Now. Fairways are still dormant and not being watered to get them growing. Greens were totally dried up. Appears course has not spent any money this spring to make course in better shape!!

Most f the hurricane damage has been cleared and the course is in good shape, especially the greens. The fairways are dry as are the aprons around the green. The rolling terrain and greens all seem to roll to the water that seem to appear on most holes.

I had the opportunity to play this course three times this past week. Using golf now this was great value for the dollar. Greens were quick and true. Some tee boxes need work due to winter conditions. Fairways though brown were good and no harm here. I also had a round at Dolphin Head and it certainly would not compare tee boxes or fairways but for the dollar value I would choose Cresent Pionte. Special note to Bill who served us every weekday morning, he was outstanding, polite, friendly and ready to help book anywhere else we might decline debto go. I not only say this for my service but had the opportunity to witness him interact with a father and son who were visiting and wanted to play a round, Bill was a true professional and accommodated their every need that made them feel like a million bucks. Great job Bill and Cresent Pionte.

First time we played and won't go back

It's a shame, the layout is great but the grass on the fairways and tees is poor and in some places nonexistant. The carts are beat up and no wonder with the condition of the cart paths.

It needs a lot of TLC not to mention $ to get it in shape.

Much of the Hurricane damage is just piled up on the sides and conceals balls.

I would love to go back if they get their act together.

I thought the layout was quite good with smart bunkering/hazards and a good mix of long/short, and straight/dogleg holes. The greens were is very good shape. It's midway in terms of proximity off-island, so easy to get to. The biggest issue I would have was with the condition. Other than the greens everything was in tough shape. To be a 'Palmer-worthy' course they really need to do a better job especially on the tee decks and fairways. For the money it was a decent deal but would rather pay a little more to get a little more...

It was my first time playing this course and I will be back. Greens were true and in good condition. It had rained most of the previous day and the course was pretty dry with all things considered. A few fairways were soggy but overall it was in great condition. I will definitely be back this summer to play it again. Hole #9 is one of the prettiest holes I've ever played. #17 and #18 are on the water with spectacular views. The course has a good amount of water that is in play but enough room to miss it with good shots. I will be adding this to the list of courses I play each year on my visit to HHI.
