In 2015 Compass Pointe was honored to be the recipient of the Bliss Award for Happiest Community of the Year. When you first arrive at Compass Pointe, the community’s beauty will steal your breath away. All 2,200 acres are filled with palm trees, lakes, fauna sanctuaries, and landscaped roundabouts that create a fun, almost tropical vibe. Compass Pointe is more than just a pretty community. Its location makes it possible for residents to participate in a wide range of activities that include swimming, golfing, hiking, playing lengthy games of tennis, taking long walks along the beach, pier and deep sea fishing, and boating.
Compass Pointe’s main amenity is Grand Lanai, the 10,000 square foot clubhouse that not only has plenty of places for residents to sit and relax, but also features a resort-style swimming pool, covered entertainment areas, and overlooks. Compass Pointe residents are urged to make full use of the adjacent tennis center and 7,000 square foot fitness center that’s full of state of the art equipment. Other community amenities include:
- Accent Lakes
- Basketball Court
- A Dog Park
- Kayak Launch
- A Rick Robbins 18 Hole Golf Course
The 2,200 acres Compass Pointe occupies is flat, making it easy for everyone to walk and use golf carts to navigate the community. To encourage people to get out of their homes and to enjoy Compass Pointe’s beauty, there are ten miles of well-groomed walking trails. When a resident gets tired, they can stretch out and relax, either in one of the pool side cabanas or on the white sand beach.
Golf has become a big part of life in the Wilmington area and the residents of Compass Pointe won’t have to go far to enjoy the game. The recently designed Compass Pointe Golf Course is one of the best in the area and features:
- Yearlong play
- Excellent drainage
- Environmentally friendly designed with a focus on conservation
- Large greens and wide fairways
- Family tees
- Two signature holes
While Compass Pointe is ideal for couples who have decided to retire, it’s also a good place to raise a family. Not only does Compass Pointe provide a safe environment to raise kids, there are also several good schools in the area, including:
- Leland Middle School
- Charter Day School
- Leland Christian Academy
- North Brunswick High School
Compass Pointe is more than just a pretty community. It’s also one that does wonderful things to preserve the environment. Of Compass Pointe’s 2,200 acres, 822 have been set aside as conservation areas. Compass Pointe landscaper, Scott Stewart, received the Stewardship Champion Award which honored his awareness and conservation of the region’s natural resources.
Each of the Compass Pointe homes has been designed to blend seamlessly with the artful landscape, be eco-friendly, and provide a comfortable place to live. The wide variety of homes located in the gated community include varying sizes of cottages and villas.
