About Our Course
Bluffton has been family owned and operated since 1989 by PGA Professional Floyd Young and family. We take great pride in providing our customers with a challenging golf course in excellent condition and with exceptional service at a great value!
Bluffton Golf Club was constructed in 1937 and is a par 72; from the blue tees it is 6628 yards. Bluffton is a mature golf course and is one of the best maintained courses in the area. Tees, fairways, and greens are watered and many mature trees line the winding Little Riley Creek which comes into play on 13 of the holes.
The Youngs introduced a second property to the family in 2008. Hidden Creek Golf Club is just 6 miles from Bluffton Golf Club and provides a unique and diverse golfing experience for area golfers.
