Superb customer service! Requested to play ahead of local high school athletes at 3pm. I was sent South/West and notified of recent work done on West Course (new fairways). I was unaffected by the conditions and pace of play was superb. No one in front, no one behind. Played in 3:30 and still collected numerous balls...and ticks and spiders. Thank you Compass Point.

Dear Crabboy2,

The greens should be healed nicely from aeration very soon. Also, with the West nine coming back online the stress on the other three will be reduced. Thank you for sharing your feedback.

The greens are in horrible conditions. I don't blame the course or staff. It looks like people don't repair ball marks at all, which is absolutely absurd. This could be a great course if that were somehow fixed.

Good Morning DrTom2007,

Thank you for playing and taking the time to share your feedback. We are implementing a new policy soon where the starter is going to ask if the group has divot tools. If they do not we will give them one. Thank you again for taking the time to share.

Compass Pointe has a lot of potential, but I don't feel like it's being properly channeled. When you check in with the starters, lately it's been a bunch of kids that don't seem to know what they are doing. There have been consistent backups and you never know which of the four courses you'll get to play any given day. As for the course, it's pretty challenging and enjoyable to play. Greens sometimes are like concrete when playing in the afternoon so be wary. Prices are pretty competitive for what you get and the full grass practice range is great.

Good mooring Golfer! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Sorry if there was some confusion on the tee. One golf course is being re-grassed this summer and will be back open in a few weeks. This should get rid of the issue you ran into. Regards, CP Team

I normally don't review courses however I feel compelled to comment on this one. So chronologically here's my feedback in the short and skinny:

My profile and factors: 13 handicap, high 80 degrees, blue tees and first time playing the course.

Checking in for tee time - The young man who checked me in was efficient and courteous. He welcomed me as soon as I stepped in. His name slip my mind as I was a preoccupied with trying to move on to change and get warmed up.

Starter (Gary) - His enthusiasm and informative approached armed my playing partner and me with everything needed to successfully navigate the course.

The course - Nice and challenging layout yet not too intimidating. It teases you really well from thr tee which I fell for and got me out of my course management strategy. Good gamesmanship. My playing partner on other hand appeared fustrated which only comes down to your confidence in your skills. After each hole this course made me look back from green to tee and make mental snapshots for next time. It kicked my butt on a lot of holes due to first time playing there enticing me to try to cut corners from tee to later discover not much cut back along woodline. I paid for it stoke wise costing an additional 10 strokes all of which I own. If I had to speak on any area for room in improvement would be the greens however I don't put that on the course. It appears as though a lot of players believe checked marks on green magically repair themselves. Can fustrate your play when you miss birdie and eagle attempts. Nevertheless I finished with a mid 80 round. Loved the course and will return soon. Thanks CPGC for a great experience.

If you aren't having fun while golfing you aren't doing it right. Great course and close to home. Not too expensive and wasn't very crowded at all. Look forward to going a lot more this year. Staff was very nice and helpful.

Played this course on an unseasonably warm day but windy in early March. Course staff were friendly and helpful. Pace was a bit slow, there was a threesome two groups up and a twosome of ladies in front of us (we were 2) but we still finished in 4.05.

The course was in decent shape for this time of year and the greens were pretty smooth and true. The fairway grass was dormant and very easy to play from. You have to watch yourself with the tee shot as some of the fairways are canted and the ball will run off, but if you pay attention off the tee you're fine. The rough was very patchy, I got the impression that they'd had issues with it. Overall the North/East is a good layout and a decent challenge if you choose the correct tees for your h'cap level. The Par 5s are long, and on one of them (the 13th) you can't use driver even from the back tees or you'll run out of real estate...don't like that, but it's a minor peeve. 8 and 17 are very good Par 5s . Overall a good solid golf course, and better than average for a public track

Of the 8 courses I have played this winter because of the seasonally warm days we have had, Compass Pointe ranks up there for its winter conditions.

Can't wait to play it again in the spring & summer.

This course is open and somewhat forgiving if you miss a few shots. I realize that the fairways are harder and dryer in the winter and that I got a lot more roll off the Tee Box, so I am sure I will not fair as well on my scorecard the next time I play , plus it was pretty easy to find missed shots in the wood-line and play them to the green.
