The Course was exceptional from the time we arrived to the very end. Staff suddenly appeared at the car with a cart, gave course advice on conditions and even checked in during the round. The course was exceptional in every sense of the word. We played the week before a tournament and its presentation, condition and greens gave an indication... More

Recently played the Duke University Golf Club. It was relatively nice afternoon. The course is in good condition. Unfortunately, played behind some slow players. Not usually a problem, but we struggling to get the round in by dark. Mentioned to starter after 9 and he didn't offer any help. Would play again though

This is a beautiful and challenging course but very fair and the layout compliments the surroundings. The greens run fast, especially those baking in the sun all day but not dried out and the many sloped fairways are also well maintained giving golfers of every skill level a chance to score well, as long as you stay in or close...

This is a nice course, on the higher end price wise the staff are fantastic and the amenities are very nice. Fun course, plays fair and I like southern pines more than northern pines for finding balls! The Pros; Staff from the pro shop checking in to the cart folks at the end were superb, friendly and helpful. The Course... More

Duke was the final stop on our North Carolina golf trip, driving over from the Pinehurst area that morning. Arrived early and did a quick tour across the street of some of the athletic facilities, including a stop in Cameron Indoor Arena. Once over to the course, the entire staff was very cordial and helpful. Very nice practice facility available... More

Returned after a absence of many years, hoping to find the same great course I had played. Unfortunately the fairways are in tough shape. We were told it was winter kill. This course is beautiful but with the shape of the fairways, it left something to be desired. A bit costly. Hotel/grounds are very nice.

Our foursome play this course the week of April 20th and the conditions were deplorable. The ninth hole, which was the 18th hole when we played, literally did not have grass on the fairway from the tee box to the green. I will mention that the greens were in above average shape. The organization that runs this place should be... More

Course was in great shape, greens seemed to be rolling about 12-13 on stimp, very good challenge. Disappointingly the round took 5 hrs, and cost about $100 per person.

I play a lot and as a special treat I'll stop by maybe quarterly as it's much higher than all of the public courses in Durham. Hilly, lots of sand, beautifully manicured, wonderful driving range with chipping areas and a huge putting green. Nits. Over $50 with cart, tough layout, expensive snacks and beer. I love the course.

Thank robert r
