Pretty decent

This course isn't bad. It's got some great holes, but the West 9 is about 400 yards less than the South 9, so that is a bit different. The Pace of Play was really good, but I had an early morning tee time so that also may have been part of it. The fairways were in great shape, but most bunkers were a free drop outside according to the starter, and the greens had tons of ball marks. I got a great deal to play it with my dad, but I would've been disappointed if I had to pay full price in the early morning. I really liked the design, and if the greens and bunkers were better I think it would be one of the best in the area.

I’d play it again

Very friendly place. Not perfect condition , but not as bad as other post would have you believe. Played ball down and had no problems. Greens have a few ball marks but didn’t have any issues putting .

All in all - very pleased!

Great friendly staff! Overall, course was in good shape, except for 5 or 6 fairways that were struggling to grow sufficient grass, due to a wet/cold late winter/early spring. Rough could be a little lower. Pace of play was good - 4 1/2 hours - for a public course. Nice layout with character. Played as a single and got paired with 3 others. Enjoyed the round and company. When back in town, will play again.

Golf afternoon and thank you for sharing your feedback. The winter was a bit tough on a few fairways and we are in the process making some additional repairs. The wet weather has made it tough to get some mowers out, but we have caught up now. Thank you for sharing. Michael

first half was great; second 9 a little less so

Compass Pointe is a well designed course - 36 holes and a a challenging layout. Two issues with our round; the east part of the North East pairing is really in pretty bad shape. Way too much fairway with no grass. And, we had two guys behind us who seemed to have started on east (not north where as I understand it you're supposed to start) who were pretty much our tail for most of 9 holes. However, still recommend the course and hope to play again soon

Busy but...

With have four courses the place was quite busy, but they have their act together with getting folks off on time, etc. Waits were not too long and it was a beautiful day so I think everyone took off work to play. Overall was a great experience!

Should’ve rewinded videos instead!

North, West, East, South...who gives a s$$t! Point the staff in the direction of some fertilizer. Worst fairways I’ve played in a long time and believe me, I’m not playing high end courses a lot. Do yourself a favor and play Forest Park, play Mt. Pleasant, heck...play Clifton Park at night!

Good course, good weather

Course was in good shape, with a few concerns. Fairways on the west course appeared to be burned out. Large brown areas and seemed dried out. Given the time of year, it hasn't been hot enougn for that. Greens were in good shape and read true. Even though there was a good crowd, pace of play was still good.

Dear Golfer, Thank you for playing Compass Pointe the other day and sharing your feedback. Unfortunately, due to the weather this winter and early spring the Bermuda grass has been slow to come out of dormancy. We hope to have it greening up soon! Regards, Michael and the Compass Pointe Team
