Friends and I went here in March. The trees were all still barren but the course was in great shape, especially the greens. Show up early as each round comes with free range balls for practice.

A Robert Trent Jones course is a fun challenge. Course conditions were good for early spring. Champion Bermuda greens are the best I've played. Elevation changes, bunkers and enough water to keep you focused on every hole. Surprisingly affordable compared to other top quality courses...More

Played with 7 friends during a Duke home game. Found the course in good shape, was a great layout and the greens very good. Since I had no Duke affiliation, thought the $120 price maybe steep. But probably would come back, but on a drier...More

I may be biased because I am a Dukie, but this is a great track. Just an all around fantastic course. While I agree with some of the other reviews that you really do need to hit straight on this course, I would disagree that...More

Played mid-April 2016, greens were nice and very fast and the whole course was pretty dry and firm. Not sure if this was a result of a dry winter or not. Pace of play was painfully slow on a Saturday, the cart guy was grouchy...More

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...More

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...More

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...More

Kevin, Just stumbled upon your review a few minutes ago. OUCH! I'm extremely sorry to hear about your poor experience with us. All the area courses suffered severe grass 'winterkill'. We spent over 52K replacing the grass in late April and early May. Additionally, I don't know what happened with our outside staff telling you about a curfew to bring golf cars in, there is not a curfew for golf carts here except darkness! The golf course is in wonderful condition and I'd like you to come back and play on our nickel. Simply write me at Ibarguen@duaa.duke.edu to arrange your return tee time. Again, my sincere apologies for the poor experience you had here. Believe me, this is NOT the way we want our guests to be treated here. I hope to hear from you, Ed Ibarguen
