We played the front nine today under some of the worst course conditions our group has ever seen. Casual water was present on all fairways and tee boxes. We were not informed of the course conditions prior to paying our full green fee. We went into the clubhouse after nine holes and asked for a rain check to return when... More

This was my local for the year I spent in Chapel Hill and I felt welcome every single time I was there. The practice facilities are the best I have come across for free public access. The course is a wonderful layout and a fair challenge rewarding sensible play but allowing you to 'go for it' on some holes. I... More

The course conditions were very good. The greens seemed to run true and the fairways were in excellent shape. One needs to be careful of getting in the rough since the type of grass easily hides the ball and makes it harder to hit out of. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.

My wife and I have bought a home in Chapel Hill and are retiring there soon from Jersey. I took a golfing trip down there in November to try out a few courses with membership in mind since I play 80-100 rounds a year. Finley was head and shoulders above the rest!!! The staff was more than accommodating (make sure... More

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.

Thank Ron S
