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.

Just a minor note...the cart paths need attention - missing sections and sections that have become uneven make the cart paths a challenge.

New management

This place is under new management, again. Yet another company coming to town to run a golf course into the ground. Golf carts are new, which was nice. Pro shop staff was friendly, conditions were fine, except for the cart paths, bunkers, and half the fairways. I know some of the people that work here, and have heard horror stories about the new company that bought this property. I hope things improve, its too good of a golf course for another company to just ruin, but definitely not holding my breath.

An interesting challenge

The course and fairways are in good shape and the greens are consistent. Water is in play on many of the holes, providing a challenge. As others have mentioned the cart paths are missing section of concrete making for a bumpy ride, you need to slow down significantly when you approach the missing pieces of the cart path.

Greens were fast and in nice shape. Rest of the course could use a little love. Cart paths are really rough.

Great course layout

This is a great golf course design. Really nice water holes. Needs some work on traps, some bare spots and needs some trees trimmed. A couple too many traps Arnie! A good mix of long and short holes. Much better than more expensive courses.

Nice Palmer design

First time playing this course, but not the last. Nice layout and a varied combination of holes. Really good set of par 3's and a course that makes you think. Greens were rolling quite well, at a good speed for amateur golfers and not overly undulating, but not flat either. Range and short game practice area were well appointed. Other reviews have pointed out the cart paths are a bit rough with many sections under repair. But concrete cart paths and the abundance of trees don't always get along. Course is well bunkered and some need a little work, but it looked like it was underway the day we played. Fairways are generous enough and not too much hidden trouble.

Challenging course, but lots of fun

Greens were air rated two days before our play, so true putting was difficult. Greens were a good size. Green fees were very reasonable considering the course. I will play it again and recommend it to friends visiting Hilton Head.

Better than advertised!

I knew the course was highly ranked but I like so many courses in the island that I never made it to bludgeon before to play this wonderful treat! Sorry it took so long!
Challenging but fair- and a good range to get warmed up. Solid everyday conditions including greens in good shape that pitted well. One of the best all time values!

Nice day in the heat

Played the day after heavy rains. Cart path only. Course was in excellent condition. Greens are challenging and needed “local knowledge “. Enough water and traps to keep it interesting. Water stations on every three holes. Much needed and appreciated. Good value. I’ll be back.
