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.

Tough Course with Fast Hard Greens

Some of the tee boxes were beat up and fairways had no overseading. Greens fast and true.

Good value at the hot deal price. Played as a single very quickly. Excellent staff. Greens were generally very good for time of year. A little scruffy elsewhere but maybe due to time of year and COVID. Very tough par 3s!

It’s a tweener

Why the review title? This course is a very difficult layout with a lot of hazards, so it may be too challenging for the average golfer. However, the course conditions were pretty bad (even considering the time of year) which may put off your better golfer. Thus, it’s a tweener. Either find a way to make it more playable for the average golfer or vastly improve the condition of the course. This is the challenge awaiting the new owners, Hallmark Golf. Having said that, I am a good golfer and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge. Thankfully, I played well. An off day would have led to a lot of disaster. Some great picturesque holes and a lot of variety made it a very enjoyable round. If I could, I’d probably give it 3.5 stars and it would be 4 or 4.5, if the course conditions were better. The greens weren’t too bad, except for a few areas where weeds have encroached. It looks like they were working on these areas for the spring play. Many of the tees were extremely wet and even a bit muddy. I’m not sure the tees have been moved around on the tee boxes for over a week. Good luck Hallmark! I hope you can save this gem of a layout!

Always fun

Old South is simply a fun course to play. Is it difficult? Not particularly. Is it easy? Not particularly. It hits a good balance for both the occasional golfer and the scratch handicap. Good variety to the holes and some really nice scenery. Course condition was good for January SC golf, though the greens were a bit slow compared to some other local courses I played. Got a great afternoon rate, which made this a well worth it round of golf. And simply always fun.

The course had a terrible green.

Lots of greens partially covered with sand. Not sure why. Not worth the money I paid to play the course. GN should indicate in their website or course website if repairs or conditions are on going. Very disappointed!

The course could use rangers to speed up play

Nice course. I would play it again, but it took 5 hours to play. Could use some rangers to speed up play.

Great layout

Arrived early and pro shop let start as a single instead of a foursome.pace was great obviously,ran into one threesome who properly waived me through.majority of the holes had great layout,especially the par threes.course conditions were good,some tee boxes a little bare but nothing to make the hole play any differently.will definitely play again on next trip to Hilton head.

Challenging Course

Most of the holes, to me were challenging with water hazards, bunkers a plenty. Even the Par 3’s were pretty tough. And it grew windy and gusty which made placement that much more challenging but needed. Very nice setting and enjoyable overall.
