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 day

Tough front nine, hills and water on every hole. Tee boxes tore up but greens were okay.

Rough areas

I guess there are new owners and they are working on conditions. Course conditions varied throughout. Tee boxes were horrible and tree area markers need paint. Red tees were bare wood.
Greens were nice on all holes except 2.
I will give it another try in a few months to see if there's improvement.

Work in Progress

Most reviews seemed rather negative online. We were going to be in Bluffton so decided to try out course after hearing new owners doing lots of improvements. Course is on its way to being much nicer. A few tee boxes closed down for repairs and some other areas having renovations done. Temp/winter grass on greens was fine.

Needs a superintendent

The tee boxes locked any grass, basically just sand. Fairways were almost the same. Some of the greens are nice but they were very inconsistent and other types of grasses were embedded in them. It is a nice layout it just needs a superintendent who knows what to do with the course

Played with 3 retired PO's from NYPD. Had a great time, course was very fair in good shape. Had a great round and was pleased since the day prior I wasted $170 on one of the 'resort' courses near the Omni hotel. Should have saved my $ and played here both days, would have had a much better time. Thanks for everything

Beautiful!

I really like the layout of course, it was challenging and rewarding. I would definitely recommend this course to my golfing buddies. The only complaints I have is that some of the tee boxes look a bit rough and some of the racks are old. Some were flimsy and starting to splinter causing some fiberglass to get on your hands.

Improving

Good layout and luckily new ownership. Greens are getting better and traps are good. Fairways dormant Bermuda. Over seeding would be nice. Tees are dirt but they are working on them as well. It did rain heavily on Monday but still cart path only on Wednesday for no good reason. Not going to damage fairways.

Save Your Money

We hadn't played in awhile so I wanted to kind of warm up on a less expensive course. Well, you get what you pay for on a golf course in Hilton Head. The tee boxes were mostly torn up, and the fairways were like hitting off dirt. I will say the greens weren't bad and rolled fairly true. My wife mentioned that she had never played a course in worse shape. I have played worse but that was a long, ong time ago.
