Golf Cart Friendly Compass Pointe in Wilmington
There are dozens of golf communities in Wilmington NC but few can be called as patriotic or fun as Compass Pointe in Leland. The resort community proved this once again in May, with a Memorial Day parade for the most patriotically decorated golf carts. Held by the Compass Pointe Veterans Club, the 4th annual event was a success for everyone. To kick off the parade, a sheriff's helicopter flew over the crowd, and there was a terrific showing of colorful Land of Liberty themed golf carts. At the finale, fallen soldiers were honored with a moment of silence and a gracious playing of TAPS. Attending the event for years, US war veteran and Compass Pointe homeowner Edward Husler said that, "It's very heartwarming. I feel it deep in my heart, and we love it every year. It gets bigger and better every year. I truly love it." Buyers often choosen Compass Pointe because it's golf cart friendly.
