The Crescent is a gated, residential golf community of over 400 homes located in Bluffton, SC on Fording Island Road (Route # 278) at the intersection of Route # 46. Located just three miles from Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and a short drive to the Savannah – Hilton Head International Airport, The Crescent is bounded by the Colleton River and its tidal marshes, and filled with breathtaking old growth oak trees and towering pines. Winding through The Crescent’s 540 picturesque acres is an 18-hole Signature golf course by one of the legendary masters of the game – Arnold Palmer himself. The only Arnold Palmer designed golf course in the area that is open to the public. Acclaimed for its dramatic beauty and world class challenge, the Crescent Pointe course features remarkable water and marsh views. Plus striking elevation changes unlike anything seen in the Hilton Head Island area before and Palmer’s trademark beach bunkers. Completing the golf experience is a handsome Clubhouse and extensive practice area. Flexible golf membership plans are available – but not required – for those who want to enjoy the semi-private course. Adjacent to the club, a private Swim, Tennis & Fitness center is reserved exclusively for Crescent residents and their guests.
