Even for "winter" the course was in great shape. We had an afternoon tee time. I was just frustrated the restroom was locked... More

Finley is not a golf course to be missed in the triangle. The course is challenging for the better golfer but set up in a way that the novice could enjoy themselves.

We played here on Friday August 26, 2016 and met some of the friendliest staff on any golf course we’ve played in a while. The golf course was fun, the front nine being a bit more strategic golf, the back nine more driver holes and really scenic, bent grass greens in good shape even in the heat, and pace of... More

Played this course earlier in the summer, greens were just aerated and we had a tee time at 12:30, had very good rates. Very pretty course, nice break for women off of the tee. Nice clubhouse.

Having approached the golf club remotely from the UK, the Head Professional and one lady member enabled me to join regular group for golf. The course is beautiful, some stunning views. It is walkable, as there are lots of places to seek shade. But it is quite a pull from the green on the 15th to the 17th tee. The... More

For a GolfNow booking value of $53/person including cart, this is a great steal. This is a nice course with pretty forgiving fairways, and a course that any skill level can play with a challenge. Honestly, if you're not overly consistent with your driver, just take it out of your bag for this course. A 3-wood will be fine, even... More

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.
