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 an interesting layout which moves through a natural area without homes or development along the holes and a break from the beach area's congestion. The course routing is parkland style with tree lined fairways over level land, moderately bunkered with water in play on 15 holes. It's a 1995 Russell Breeden design that from the back tees is 6,343 yards, 70.0/126, course/slope ratings with three shorter tees.
