I m from the North and this reminds me a lot of some northwoods courses with majestic pines and forgiving fairways. there is a lot of sand but this is a challenging and fair course. beautiful multilevel greens on a few holes (massive greens) I still can't get used to the giant fans blowing on the greens to keep the...

This course is in excellent condition. From the tee boxes, through the fairways, and on the greens the course is in very good shape. The course can be expensive if you don't have a coupon but it appears that the extra money gets put to good use towards the course. I'm about a 15 handicap and shot a 39 on... More

What a great course, people, club house and food. The club house was great and the starter was the best I have ever had. This was a great time and ranks near the top of my golf experiences. Course was lush and fun.

Recently played in early November and really enjoyed the course. Very nice layout with some fantastic holes, especially on the back 9. The conditioning was great and the greens were excellent. Booked through GolfNow and got a great deal, even at the regular rates it is a solid course not to be missed.

They have really improved the layout and recently the clubhouse. I't beats Duke as it's really more playable and more beautiful to me. My foursome included 3 alumni so I guess we are bias. I filled out their "how did we do card" and wrote, " if you would lower the cart and greens fees to $40 instead of $58,... More

The course is very nice, good layout. A few fantastic holes, if your in the area, I would recommend playing. Not worth going out of your way to play, but its a nice course. I get the idea of having students employed at the course, I also understand that being a campus course makes them extremely busy on a beautiful... More

Home of the UNC golf teams, Finley is reputed to be a great public course and a very good value. I go there because there is a little hidden walking/running trail at the rear called the Mason Farm tract. No dogs allowed because it is used by UNC to study birds and other wildlife. An inexpensive annual gate pass can... More

Beautiful course nestled in the woods of Chapel Hill. Fun to play. Great greens. There's also a great practice green to use before you start out on the course. Great snacks, too.
