Marcus Pointe Golf Club tumbles across 600 acres of rolling woodlands, which is a rare occurrence in the mostly flat Panhandle area. The back nine is where golfers really begin to notice the dramatic undulations. Earl Stone, who has designed several Gulf Coast golf courses, created the layout. He has built his reputation on building playable and affordable courses. While water may not come into play often, golfers will still be kept on their toes by the numerous sand bunkers and an abundance of trees and of course, the tricky angles and elevation changes throughout. The golf course is challenging but fair with a playability that appeals to golfers of all skill levels. The greens are well manicured and keep all abilities in mind. Four sets of tees make Marcus Pointe Golf Club even more accessible.

Great course but slow play.

The course is very nice and a challenge on some holes. Well maintained. Friendly staff. Only issue is the play was a little slow. At one point had to wait about 15 before teeing off.

Not the best but pretty good

I could have rated it a 4 but I'm compari9it to Stone bridge and cypress lakes, which have better fairways and greens. This place has the absolute best bunkers and is in very decent shape. Kind of and sad restroom and always too warm snack bar area. Employees like CHRIS make it a very friendly experience.

Course was in excellent condition. Staff were very friendly. Carts and restrooms pristine.
Course was enjoyable for + 20 handicap.
I would certainly endorse this course as a course in North Florida that you should play.

Good greens and pace of play

The greens are in good condition, a bit on the slow side, but still roll well. This was our second straight day booking the course due to the course being in good condition. I normally don't play weekends and was worried our twosome would be held up. However, the pace of play was very good, mainly due to the fact there were several twosomes booked so nobody fell behind any slower playing groups of four. The fairways are also in good shape, and even number 3 and the repair work in the middle of 18 has been resolved over the past 6 weeks or so.

Good course, was overcharged by staff in the grill.

I play Marcus Pointe frequently and the course conditions are normally very consistent which is not my gripe. I normally buy a couple of beverages throughout the round but today I bought a sandwich and a beverage. My total should have been $11.50 but I was charged $12.50, initially I thought it could’ve been tax but after looking at the menu it stated prices were tax included. My first instinct would have been it was an honest mistake but I remember the cashier looking at her fellow worker with a wry smile. I didn’t catch on at first but as I stated after looking at the menu I realized that I had been duped.

This course was great. Greens were a little slow. But good challenge. I've been golfing for 2 years now and the fairways are great and the greens look great.

Great staff and round

First time playing this course and while it wasn’t perfect it had a good amount of character. The greens were slow but true. I’d give them an 8 on the stimp. Had a 7:40 as a single and they sent me out to hole 5 to get ahead of everyone and I flew. Once I finished up sent me back on 1-4 and finished up my round in 2 hours. Starter was awesome. I’m from out of town but will be back here next summer and will play again. Good value and super staff.

Great conditions, not for out of towners.

This course conditions were great, but I felt like I was back at home in Texas instead of in Florida on vacation. Pace was a little slow for a mid day tee time. Greens rolled great and look incredible. Just not a “Florida” like course.

Course in good condition

Fairways and greens well watered. Good summertime conditions. Some of the bunkers a little firm. Overall, a good day.

Enjoyable day

The chance of thunderstorms left the course practically empty and we were able to breeze through 36 holes today. There is no replay rate which is very uncommon and will likely impact our decision next time we're looking to play more than 18. The fairways are in fairly good condition with the exception of a hole in the middle of #18, and of course the always terrible #3 fairway is per normal. The greens are getting some speed to them making them more enjoyable, and they roll really good. Some kind of grass similar looking to crab grass is popping up on several of the greens although it's not affecting the lines for now. The course is definitely worth the summer rate specials.

Great management and layout

I say this is well managed even though I never met the manager but the staff is friendly, and accommodating and that isn’t by accident. It reflects directly on management
The course had fallen in disrepair a few years ago but the new owner has revitalized the course and they have a excellent groundskeeper
I play as a single and teamed up with some great guys today
Wonderful round of golf
