Take a Hike or Ride a Bike

Palmetto Bluff's expansive trail system provides even more opportunity to explore and discover the enormity of our 20,000+ acres. Hop on a bike, horse or go by foot on our trails that crisscross the property and connect the residential neighborhoods to parks, recreational activities and the best of Wilson Village. If you're feeling adventurous - or just need to cool off - explore our water trails in a kayak or canoe and take a dip in the May River. If you are heading out to explore our property, please remember to stay on the designated trail paths, properly dispose of any trash and respect the wildlife. They were here first, after all.

Golf

You might chalk it up to mere curiosity if you wind up in a bunker at the May River Golf Club. After all, it's not every day that you get to walk through sand from Ohio - especially when you're golfing in the South Carolina Lowcountry. But like everything at this beautiful Jack Nicklaus Signature Course, the sand was chosen for a reason, as its angular grain adheres better to sloped surfaces and holds up to coastal weather. Of course, there's much more than sand on this beautiful par-72 course, which weaves almost 7,200 yards along the banks of the May River. Wide, inviting fairways wind past ancient live oaks and palmetto trees, and golfers of all skill levels experience the game in its purest state, reveling in the sights and sounds of a remarkable natural habitat. A state-of-the-art practice facility, handsome clubhouse, and skilled instructors complete the experience, consistently ranked best among South Carolina courses.

Whether you're a beginner or an expert, you'll discover an array of experiences to help make your stay unforgettable. Explore our inland watertrail system, hug the coast for an inshore experience, or head out to deeper waters offshore where you are guaranteed to come home with a fresh catch. Fly fishing instruction is also available, where you will learn the proper techniques from guides who will help you cultivate a strong foundation of skills.

Lawn Sports

Our immaculately kept lawns are good for more than just a barefoot stroll. You'll be happy to know we keep two pristine croquet lawns on the property at Wilson Lawn and Racquet Club - our recreational hub and perfect gathering place for friendly competition. Along with the lawns, the expansive club facility includes eight Har-Tru tennis courts, two bocce courts, four courtside shelters and a well-equipped pro shop and pavilion. Junior tennis clinics (ages 4-18) and leagues complete the experience with programs for beginners and advanced juniors alike. Much like everything else at The Bluff, The Club blends gracefully into its natural surroundings, which include a healthy population of pine and live oak for ample shade and ambiance.

Equestrian

Longfield Stables is home to Palmetto Bluff's exceptional equestrian facility. The 173-acre farm is the subject of equine envy as it stands out among some of the best equestrian facilities in the country. The stables include a covered arena, an FEI-regulation outdoor dressage area and a five-acre turf event field as well as a main barn and receiving barn, both featuring oversized stalls.
