Not sure why the tee box and fairway on 18 was painted green, but quirky hole.

Great Course Conditions especially for late October

My dad and I got paired with another father/son duo. The pace of play was excellent, there was a group consistently pushing us from behind but they never caught up with us - by the last three holes it was rather annoying and we would have allowed them to play through. The greens were superb, fast, and in great condition. The fairways similarly were gorgeous, some unreplaced divots, but nothing unexpected for this tine of year. The course otherwise was in excellent condition, the best in the area and better than any course in DC. The tee boxes were similarly in fantastic condition. No complaints about the course.

We were fortunate to play with a duo who played the course before, otherwise navigating the course would have been difficult - in terms of understanding where to hit/lay up etc. course is well laid out over a considerable area. Our cart struggled from the start but made it to the end.

Nice Course

Compass Pointe is a hidden gem. The layout of the course is outstanding. The course is really in good shape. The greens were very good. I can't blame them for ball marks that people don't fix. It had rained for two days so the greens weren't that fast. I was surprised that every part of the course was in good shape. Tee boxes, fairways and greens. Especially with all the rain they had. Because of so much rain we played the ball out of the sand traps. Many were full of water. Overall, a great time had on a very nice course.
