Great course, but expensive and slow

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.

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

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.

In the area for the us open and we played the Duke golf course. What a great course, perfect greens and fairways but what a great place of tradition. Had so much fun touring the halls looking at pictures, championship banners etc. everyone was so great at the course and made this a highlight of my golf experiences!

Very well maintained and interesting golf course. Bring a good attitude if you dont have a good long iron or tee ball you can hit on target. Its fun and challenging at the same time - moderately priced for this level of a course. I understand that the student rate is dirt cheap....one more reason to miss college life! Grab... More

Played on 5/13 and the course was in fantastic shape. Fairways allowed ball to roll out. Greens were quick. Positive they would stemp at 10+. Clubhouse team very hospitable. Enjoyed dinner on the Presidents Terrace. Impressed this Tarheel fan!

Always been a great course. Just played for the first time since they redid the greens last year and they were just fantastic. Can't go wrong here.

I think the first time or two, I was always intimated playing here. Finally my game came out. We live down in Pinehurst, so only head to Durham about once a year. The winter was rough in NC, but the course was in good shape: tees, fairways and greens. They made some changes last summer and maybe that is why... More
