Where2Golf says: 

Marcus Pointe Golf Club: On the northern outskirts of Pensacola, a couple of miles south of I-10, Marcus Pointe provides a pleasant and challenging golf outing - weaving through a residential development, the holes are usually laid out in pairs, which helps to maintain a pleasantly natural balance to proceedings, with unobtrusive housing flanking only one side of some holes - on the flatter front-nine, oaks and pines lightly line the way, with good mounding also defining the gently rolling fairways - a significant downhill drop at the par-4 10th signals greater elevation changes on the back-nine - holes 11 thru' 14 are played on the other side of an offshoot from nearby Crescent Lake, and get the more undulating and water-defended back-nine off to a good start - the juxtaposition of discreet housing on one side of several holes and attractive woodland on the other is a frequent feature - a solid if not outstanding collection of par-3s provide a good challenge, although only the 13th brings water into play - the nicely doglegging, gentle climb of the closing par-4 18th provides for a good finish, although now with a backdrop of three houses rather than a picturesque stand of trees - with its pleasant mix of straightaway and doglegging holes, some pleasant elevation changes on the back-nine and a mix of housing and woodland beyond the course, Marcus Pointe is an attractive layout that throws down an agreeable challenge to all facets of your game.

Did you know?

Nearby Pensacola is the westernmost city on Florida's Panhandle, and was the first mainland North American settlement to be developed by the Spanish. It is sometimes referred to as the "The City of Five Flags," recognising the fact that five different countries have flown their flags over the city in its long history: namely, Spain (Castile), France, Great Britain, the Confederate States of America, and the United States of America.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.
Jack Nicklaus:  like Pete Dye a native of Ohio, actually started his golf course design career working together with Dye. In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.

Latest golf course reviews
Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
