Getting To Latitudes Just Got Easier

A new gate that opened just before Memorial Day has made driving to Latitudes Restaurant, located in the private Leland community of Compass Pointe, more accessible for hungry visitors.
The restaurant, which sits adjacent to the Compass Pointe Golf Club, opened to the public in June 2016. Before the new gate, diners had to drive farther through the neighborhood and take more turns, according to community officials.
The new gate has always been in the community’s masterplan, said Amanda Marks, Compass Pointe’s marketing director. The entrance is located 1.2 miles west of the main gate along U.S. 74-76. 
“It just made sense to have a gate that was closer to the course and restaurant,” Marks said. “I think it makes it easier for golfers to get in and out of the course.”
Since Latitudes Restaurant is located next to the Compass Pointe Golf Club pro shop, golfers frequent the restaurant often. Marks said she encourages not only golfers, but anyone who is hungry and in the area to visit. Guests from outside the community who want to eat at the restaurant just need to let the security guard know upon arrival.
Latitudes’ menu features items such as a mushroom and Swiss burger, fish and chips and a grilled vegetable sandwich.
