Indulge in the Sporting Life

Whether it is the serenity of a nature walk through the preserve, the challenge of testing your skills at the Shooting Club, or the excitement in your child's eyes when you help him catch his first largemouth bass - Palmetto Bluff offers the best outdoor experiences of the Lowcountry. Our conservationists and 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 on the water, the marsh, and the woods of the Lowcountry.



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 neighborhood 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.


The sport of sporting clays

Hunting and the shooting sports have been a long-standing tradition on Palmetto Bluff for years (if not centuries). The Palmetto Bluff Shooting Club features 13 sporting clays stations winding through an expanisve 40-acre hardwood bottom. An elevated and covered 5-stand station, plus a wobble deck field make for a total of 14 shooting sites.

For more information on the Palmetto Bluff Shooting Club, call 843-706-6577.


Hook, line and sinker

Fishing is another one of the long-standing traditions here at the Bluff. For centuries - since Native Americans inhabited this place - people have come here to enjoy the amazing diversity of sea life. Whether you're 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 you are guaranteed to come home with a fresh catch.


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


Equestrian exploration awaits

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.

For more information, please call the Longfield Stables Office at 843-706-9559.

The May River's favorite golf 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.
