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.

I live in Cary and routinely make the 25 minute drive to Chapel Hill to play Finley. It is my favorite public course in the area and ranks right up there with the private courses. It is always in great shape with very fast greens. It is a very fair course if you select the proper tees. The condition of... More

"My own experience," in this case, is based on hearsay, but it is a good assessment. A friend - - who has no financial worries, and has played golf in all kinds of high-falutin' places - - was coming to town and wanted to play some local golf, so I made a reservation for him at Finley and at the...
