Type Public
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.

Terrific course with a scenic layout

Far and away the best course off-island course around Hilton Head. The course's layout is moderately challenging but extremely enjoyable, and offers may scenic holes throughout the marshland. The course is always in excellent shape, and can be score-able from the correct tees. The greens are in near perfect shape, roll well, and are pretty easy to read. Very nice practice facility.

Crescent Pointe is back...

After going thru a 2 year period of poor management, which is now gone...a great Arnold Palmer Signature course is back. While ongoing improvements continue, the greens are terrific, fairways well maintained, and the scenery is stunning. Well worth a play for any level golfer....multiple tee boxes.

Nice off island option

Very good value on a hot deal, or even regular afternoon rate Greens were a little slow and showed signs of being punched, but that’s normal this time of year, fairways and bunkers were nice. Played as a single, never saw anyone until I caught a twosome on the 17th Pretty playable for a Palmer design, no long forced carries etc. White tees were up on several holes, drove it into trouble a few times, should have had my gps app running . Overall very enjoyable round. Should be a good choice for many skill levels.

Off island treasure

Last minute booking for a great price. While the fairways were very wide, there are many wash areas and every hole has water, bunkers or both. I took a fair share of penalty strokes but could only blame myself. The fairways were still manicured well. The grass cutters shut down when golfers approach and the greens were in good shape for this time of year. There are four teeing grounds to accommodate all levels of play. Arnold Palmer designed and while difficult, I loved it.

Great course if you like different looks

Have played this course many times over the years while on vacation in the area. One of my favorites in the area due to the diverse looks throughout the 18. Holes 2 and 9 are as a good a par 3’s as you will find. The course was in really good shape and the greens were true and rolled well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Played at noon in the heat so minimal traffic and done by 3:30.

Course in bad condition

Course was in bad condition with greens really slow. Many bald spots around the course. Much better courses for the $38 Hot Deal on HHI!
