“The Rocky Roquemore crafted the course at Pinecrest, which opened November 22, 2004, is dramatically different from anything that the current Hilton Head/Bluffton golf market offers. Presently, there are three types of golf courses: high-end private, public, and semiprivate.
The high-end private clubs, while beautiful, tend to be unaffordable for the average family. The public courses in Hilton Head and Bluffton are terrific, especially for tourism, but they are often flooded during the peak tourist seasons by the island’s seasonal visitors. Lastly, there are the semiprivate golf clubs that have both local and visiting golfers competing for the priority tee times.
World-renowned golf course architect Rocky Roquemore designed the course at Pinecrest, 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.
