The Pointe is a good alternative to the high priced OBX courses, and is located off of Hwy. 158 in Powells Point, 5 minutes North of the Wright Memorial Bridge. It's a 1995 Russell Breeden design that from the back tees is 6,343 yards, 128 slope. Interesting course and challenging but fun layout in good shape. Just pure golf, no residential development, out in the country and a nice break from the beach area's congestion. The course routing is parkland style with tree lined fairways, moderately bunkered with water in play on 15 holes. Nice variety of holes, well managed facility, and good pace of play.
