Crescent Pointe Golf Club in Bluffton is Arnold Palmer's only public course in the area. It is conveniently located just a few minutes west of the bridge leaving Hilton Head Island. Opened in 2000, the course has quickly gained a reputation as being one of the Lowcountry's best. Sprawling across a lush landscape blanketed with century-old oaks and towering pines, the layout is as scenic as it is challenging. While the generous fairways may be player friendly, the difficult approaches to the elevated, well bunkered greens are anything but. The large, pristine white sand bunkers were designed in true Palmer-style, closely following the natural undulations of the land. The gently rolling terrain is unique for the area. Crescent Pointe Golf Club's elevation changes aren't dramatic but they do provide some subtle, but tricky undulations in the greens that make it hard to find a flat lie.

Long Day

Beside needing major capital improvements. A ranger is needed. The pace of play was dismal with three groups on most holes. Players needed to be forced to keep the pace of play reasonable or asked to leave. Sorry long day!

Beach girls

The course overall was very nice. There were a couple of greens that had some bad spots on them. The level of difficulty was good for 3 senior women. We played the red tees even though they had purple tees for super seniors and senior women. We liked that they had those because it won’t be too long before we will have to play them, We had a wonderful day of golf. We will play this course again when we come back.

Well designed and challenging

This course can also be walked. Very well designed with undulating greens, moguls, plenty of water and sand hazards. It's not an easy course, but also not an extremely challenging course. Good for experienced golfers as well as beginners. Fairways are in great shape as are the greens. Some of the hazard areas could use some manicuring.

The cart paths ruined it

The fairways and course layout were great and picturesque. The greens were generally in good shape but with a few bald spots.

The cart paths were inexcusably horrible. I honestly was concerned that I would hurt my back with all of the jostling from the broken cart paths. Every hole had multiple sections of missing cart path that seemed like they were at some point filled in with gravel that has long since scattered, leaving a several inch drop-off and an immediate subsequent sharp bump back up. The bridges over sea marshes also feel and look like they need some maintenance.

There were also some swampy parts of the course between the cart path and the tee box or green. Without any significant rain for several days, this seems like something they should have under control in high traffic areas like that.

If the cart paths had been of average quality, I would have given the course a 4 or 5 star overall rating and definite 5 star value for money with the GolfNow hot deal. Next time I'm looking for a reasonably priced round in the area, though, I'll go back to Old South.

Needs some improvement

Water the greens and fix the dead / bad spots, cart paths were horrible, needs help on tee boxes. Overall the course was decent (GolfNow hot deal at $42), public course, definitely should have a beverage cart going around. Shipyard for $45 is a much better bargain.

Cresent Point challenging layout

Very interesting course layout, lots of placement needed to avoid trouble, we play this course very year in our Hilton Head visit . More up and down evaluation changes from most any area course.
Only negative this year was the condition of the cart paths while concrete, lots of VERY bad spots, be very careful navigating the paths. Can't remember them being this bad in prior years. Arnold would be ashamed !

Meh...

Tried this place again. I think I'm done playing here. It's too bad, used to be a really good course. Not sure what the deal is, but not worth the money. Too many other options close by. Positives - staff was great and drinks were cold. Negatives - everything else. It is truly a shame to see this place continue to deteriorate.
