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.

We were extremely disappointed in the contition of the course, it is very apparent they are not spending any time or money to keep this course in good condition. Extremely upset at the money we spent to play here. The only good thing I can say is the gentlemen who provided the bag and cart service was the most helpful and friendly person we met on this Island.

Magnificent layout and hole locations. May be the hardest course in Bluffton to play. Not forgiving to the high handicapper. Course needs lots of maintenance upgrades, but the greens were fine. Good value for the money.

On my last trip to Hilton Head 7 years ago, Crescent Point was my favorite course so naturally I was stoked to play it again. It seems like they stopped taking care of it the moment I left. It appears they no longer spend enough $$$ to keep the place in good shape. Very disappointed.

Greens were good but fairways thin and lumpy in spots. Lot of water on front nine. Lots of sand. With wind this course is a challenge for a 16 handicapper.

A very nice layout through a housing community. Only negative was the course conditions. Need more grass in many areas. But, the layout is worth a visit.

Enjoyed the challenge and character of the course. Most green complexes are well bunkered and raised. Par 4 and 5 tee boxes made you think about club selection. Conditions from tee to green were typical of late winter ...tough lies around the aprons as a result. Greens had been serviced (sanded) recently, but speed was actually good in spite of that. No cart service on course (not sure if that was due to early season) but service around the club house was good. Would play again after grass comes alive.

Played on a cool early March day. Played 18 in about 4 3/4 hours. Course was in decent shape for time of year. Greens were good. Sand was inconsistent. Course is challenging but not overly difficult if you play the correct tees. Nice bar area.
