Where2Golf says: 

Bloody Point Golf Club & Resort: With not a car in sight and barely a house in view, a real treat awaits golfers who journey out to the natural splendour of Daufuskie Island. A short ferry ride across Calibogue Sound from Hilton Head Island, brings you to this small forested island, and its three golf courses. The Melrose and Bloody Point courses are open to visitors; Haig Point is a private club.

Both the Bloody Point and Melrose golf courses have staged something of a comeback following their closure in 2008 as the Daufuskie Island Resort & Breathe Spa was declared bankrupt. The two courses are now under separate ownership.

As part of its renaissance, Bloody Point has benefitted from a full Davis Love III renovation. The course is laid out in a lightly wooded and reasonably open environment, where the relatively tight opening tee-shot signals that this course is no push-over. There are plenty of water hazards, created by the coastal marshes and several dark water lagoons. Good bunkering, although pared back from the original design, will also keep you on your mettle. The large greens present a thorough test of your abilities with the "short stick".

The wonderful short par-4 10th kick-starts Bloody Point's back-nine. Here you will encounter some of the most memorable holes and enjoy the best of the seashore and wetland views. From many parts of the course you can hear the sea lapping at the water's edge, but only on the closing loop of three holes will those fabulous coastal views really come into focus.

Stay & Play: on-site accommodation is available in the Bloody Point Golf Club & Resort (see Where2Stay section below).

Did you know?

Bloody Point is so called in recognition of a series of skirmishes fought between the local Yemassee Indians and European colonists in 1715. During one battle Bloody Point earned its name, as the southernmost point of Daufuskie Island ran red with blood. The bald eagle's nest on the seventh hole and the Osprey's nest on the 15th are visited annually by these nationally treasured birds.
