Crescent Point Golf Club
Crescent Pointe Golf Club is a world-class Arnold Palmer Signature Course. It’s pure Palmer, with generous fairways, but challenging approaches to its many elevated, undulating greens. The course also features beach bunkers on several of the holes lending a true island experience. Five unique par 3s await and the three par 5s are all birdie holes, but all require you to carry the ball over the water to score a birdie. The 18-hole “Crescent Pointe” course at the Crescent Pointe Golf Club facility in Bluffton, South Carolina features 6,773 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 71.
Eagle’s Pointe Golf Club
The 18-hole Eagle’s Pointe opened in 1998 and has quickly become one of the most popular “off-island” courses with both local golfers, as well as tourists. Designed by Davis Love III, Eagle’s Pointe was engineered and constructed as one of the most environmentally compliant golf courses in Beaufort County and Bluffton. Eagle’s Point is one of the Hilton Head area’s most playable golf courses, neither too long, nor overly difficult. It provides terrific variety and puts maximum value on a golfers’ approach into the greens. The course is routed through pines, oaks, and native coastal wetlands.
Pinecrest Golf Club
World-renowned golf course architect Rocky Roquemore crafted The Pinecrest Golf Club, in his first South Carolina Lowcountry design. Roquemore is known for co-designing three of the Disney World Courses (the Magnolia Course, the Buena Vista Course, and the Palm Course). He also has been the working golf course architect for Cog Hill in Chicago for the last 26 years. Perhaps most notably, he designed San Lorenzo Golf Club, the number two-rated course in Europe as rated by Golf World Magazine in 1995. The Pinecrest Golf Course Championship layout features: tall pines, strategically placed bunkers, challenging water hazards, premier conditioning, and picturesque golf holes.
Island West Golf Club
Island West has been rated 4 Stars by Golf Digest and is not your typical Low-county golf course. Golfers of all skill levels have the opportunity for good scores, a reflection of the spirit of our golf club and community. 1979 Masters Champion and 1984 U.S. Open Champion Fuzzy Zoeller and architect Clyde Johnston designed Island West to be a golf course that rewards hard work. The course is challenging but very playable making it a favorite with area golfers.
Arthur Hills Golf Course
Tee off one of Hilton head Island’s most distinctive course. The Palmetto Dunes Resort golf course layout takes full advantage of the area’s natural beauty, creating a round of golf that is both beautiful and challenging. Designed by Arthur Hills, the golf architect offers golfers a course with continuous lines of dunes and thick stands of palmettos. Though fairway bunkers are absent, off-balance lies, ocean breezes and lagoons add an element of challenge. With reason, the course has earned its reputation as delivering one of the island’s best golf experiences.
Robert Trent Jones Golf Course
As fine wine grows better with age, so does the Robert Trent Jones course at Palmetto Dunes Resort Following extensive renovations by Jones’ protégé, Roger Rulewich, the oldest course on the resort was named South Carolina’s “Golf Course of the Year” in 2003. Golfers not only look forward to wide fairways, expansive greens and subtle elevation changes but also a new lake and bunkers that have been reshaped and restored to Jones’ original design. Other notable features include the par-five 10th hole, one of the only two oceanfront holes on all of Hilton Head Island.
Fazio Golf Course
When it comes to delivering a challenging round of golf in Hilton Head, SC, some courses should take a lesson from the young. The George Fazio Course at Palmetto Dunes is one of the youngest courses to ever appear on Golf Digest’s list of “America’s 100 Best.” With just two par-fives on the course, Fazio has designed a layout where the front nine features open, tree-lined fairways and the back nine becomes tighter and more severe. Regarded as the island’s truest championship challenge, the “Fazio Challenge” can be easily enjoyed by both beginner and advanced players.
The Club at Savannah Harbor
