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.

Disappointed

I’m really expecting this course to turn around but it looks doubtful. Greens were long and slow. Tee boxes were unkept and beaten up. Fairways were ok but just off the fairway there are tall weeds and uncut grass hiding the view. This course used to be great but I’m not sure how it is going to recover. I live local and play it about every other month. I’m always dissatisfied.

What happened?

We used to play this course up until few years ago on vacation and loved the layout and overall condition. Gave it a try this year and hardly even recognized some of the holes it was so overgrown from left/right/behind/everywhere, some of the tee boxes not cut in a couple weeks based on size of patches of grass and weeds on them, greens decent overall condition but easily the slowest I’ve ever putt on, and one of the par 4s on the back nine was closed off halfway up the fairway where we found a surprise makeshift green. So it was 17.5 holes.

Sadly neglected

This is a perfect example of a course that has sadly been neglected. I understand that rain or whatever can impact when you mow but trimming Trees, hedges, pulling weeds from bunkers etc, can be done even when the course is mush. Playing from the back tees I feel as thought I was cheated from several good tee shot views at overgrowth blocked my line of site. And this overgrowth is not the kind that’s strategically placed but rather neglected. Luckily I found a deal where I paid only $38. The guy ahead of me paid $75 and I would be sick to my stomach to think I dropped that on this course. I was bummed about spending $38 on it.

Not worth the money

Overgrown fairways and rough. Greens were like putting on a fairway. Recommend spending an extra $40-$50 to enjoy your round. The photo is the overgrown fairway.

Terrible

Beautiful layout but embarrassing conditions. Arnold Palmer would be ashamed to have his name associated with the course. Not worth $30 for 18.

The course conditions were good except the greens needed to be mowed

The cart paths were atrocious. The concrete was broken up throughout and parts of the paths were gravel.

Overly critical

If you've read reviews to this point - you've likely noticed a couple themes. Mainly, bad conditions and bad cart paths. Let's get one thing out of the way - the cart paths are, without question, absolutely horrible. I'm convinced they're sponsored by a local chiropractor. At the end of the day though, just slow down over bumps. It's not your personal cart at risk of damage. Chill out.

Conditions for any public course in this area should have an asterisk. This summer started hot and dry, killing the grass, then all of a sudden we can't go a day without an inch of rain. What do you expect a moderately priced course to do? The conditions are perfectly in step with every other course that can't raise the POA fees by a grand one month to cover extra maintenance expenses. The greens are lush and roll true. The tee boxes are flat. The fairways are mowed.

If you're complaining about the height of the grass in the deep rough... Maybe go to the range and practice so you're not in it all day?

It's a really challenging course with a unique layout, especially from the tips. In this volatile economy, it's a good course for the price. If you're expecting $200 conditions, go play a $200 course.

More weeds than grass

I have never played at a worse course than this in all my rounds. For $75 I was expecting a decent Hilton head golf course. Instead it was utter disappointment. There was weeds all over the greens and fairways. No joke one whole had weeds up to my knees. The cart paths are brutal - a jackhammer would be smoother than what I drove on.

Don’t play here. Spend your money somewhere else.

Arnold would be happy

Crescent Point has always had a great layout that uses the natural terrain and lagoons. I play it periodically throughout the year. They have recently put a lot of work in course and I would like to recognize them for their outstanding effort. The fairways, sand traps and greens are in great shape for this time of year. The greens have been top dressed. They have even rebuilt bridges.
The clubhouse has a great lunch and a favorite of my 94 year old father.
If you are visiting or local and have not played Cresent Point in a while it is time to come back.

Coming back

This used to be one of the best courses around. That was before Brown Golf took over managing it. For several years the course spiraled out of favor. Brown is now out of the picture and the new company has started tending to the course. Tee boxes and greens now have grass and the fairways are green. It’s not there yet but it’s getting there. The course layout is great. It’s challenging but fair.
