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.

Latest golf course reviews
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
The Duke Golf Club: represents the latest in a trio of private courses to arrive on the Dutch golfing scene. All prefixed by the definite article, The Dutch (2010, designer Colin Montgomerie) and The International (2012, Ian Woosnam) have now been joined by The Duke, which firmly targets a business clientele and the corporate golf market. Read more...
Drentse Golfclub De Gelpenberg: as the oldest golf course in the Dutch province of Drenthe, De Gelpenberg offers a partly-wooded and partly-open heathland layout, guaranteed to test all facets of your game.
