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.

Bad Course & Disappointing Experience

Crescent Pointe was the first course I ever played when visiting Hilton Head a number of years ago. It was a great course; however, it has changed for the worst over the years. I spoke highly to of the course to my golfing buddies yesterday, and we arrived to a complete disaster of a course. We paid over $80 each. What did we get? We were not informed until arriving that the back 9 was being aerated (tee boxes and fairways). As such, we had to play the front 9 twice. The tee boxes and greens were in TERRIBLE condition on the front too. I was shocked based on my previous experience the poor condition of the course. The course needs a lot of help. Unfortunately, it will not be on my list of courses to play in the future. I DO NOT RECOMMEND IT!

Horrible golf experience, poor manners from staff at check in, didntnot communicate thatt the back nine was closed for aeratio, did not post alert,

1. Back nine closed, no aeration alert notification.

2. Rude behavior at check in, could not find my reservation, very unfriendly.

3. Satff did not inform me the had a shot gun start that dropped foursomes on my tee box on no.3, second time around the front nine as back nine was closed.

Terrible Coonditions

I have been traveling to Hilton Head Island for 27 years now and have also been to Myrtle Beach many times as well. This is the worst course I have ever played in SC, The course condition was deplorable, The “greens” were awful and were dead with sand over diseased sections. Don’t waste your money!
