Indulge in the

sporting life

Palmetto Bluff offers the best outdoor experiences of the Lowcountry.


What’s Your Action Verb?

Whether it is the serenity of a nature walk through the River Road Preserve, the challenge of testing your skills at the Shooting Club or the excitement in your child’s eyes when you help them catch their first largemouth bass, Palmetto Bluff offers the best outdoor experiences of the South Carolina Lowcountry. Our guides are contagious with their knowledge and passion — and driven to inspire you to immerse within the environment. There is no better place to have fun than the water, marsh and woods of the Lowcountry.

Explore the Land

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, ride a horse or go by foot on trails that crisscross the property and connect the residential neighborhood to parks, recreational activities and the villages. If you’re feeling adventurous — or just need to cool off — explore our water trails by kayak or canoe or take a refreshing dip in the May River.

Hunting & Shooting

The sport of sporting clays

Hunting and the shooting sports have been a long-standing tradition at Palmetto Bluff for years (if not centuries). The Palmetto Bluff Shooting Club features 13 sporting clays stations winding through an expansive 40-acre hardwood bottom. An elevated and covered five-stand station, plus a wobble deck field, makes a total of 14 shooting sites.

On the Water

Hook, line and sinker

For centuries — since Native Americans inhabited this place — people have come here to enjoy the amazing diversity of sea life. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, you’ll discover an array of experiences to help make your stay unforgettable. Explore our inland water trail system, hug the coast for an inshore experience, or head out to deeper waters offshore where a fresh catch is all but guaranteed.

Racquet Sports

Racquet sports of all types

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, six pickleball courts, two bocce courts, four courtside shelters and a well-equipped pro shop and pavilion.

The May River’s favorite course.

You might chalk it up to mere curiosity if you wind up in a bunker at the May River Golf Course. 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.
