The championship Finley Golf Course at UNC is nestled deep in the heart of the lush splendor of historic Chapel Hill and bordered by towering pines. For more than half a century, the fairways and greens of this Carolina jewel have challenged a who’s who of UNC and ACC collegiate champions past and present. Finley was redesigned by world-renowned golf architect Tom Fazio in 1999, and the final result is impressive. A look that’s timeless; flawless conditions; a range of holes for all skill levels; a course you’ll move to the top of your must-play list.
Governors Club, a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, has been a U.S. Open Regional Qualifying Site. Nicklaus no doubt was attracted to the area when he oldest son Jack II was playing golf for the Tar Heels in the 1980s. Situated along wooded valleys with lush foliage, the private course follows the natural contours of Edwards Mountain and winds through the upscale neighborhoods of Governors Club. It is challenging yet rewarding. The 600-foot elevation changes reveal the spectacular beauty of stone walls, rocky creeks, and soaring maple and pine trees.
Located at the shores of Jordan Lake, the Preserve at Jordan Lake Golf Club is a semi-private golf course designed by Davis Love III, who starred for the Tar Heels in the 1980s. The Preserve was voted one of America’s Top 40 new golf courses by Golfweek Magazine and has been designated as an Audubon International Certified Sanctuary Golf Course. With that honor comes the responsibility to uphold the principles of environmental stewardship. The Preserve’s goal is to provide the best golfing experience possible while maintaining a refuge for wildlife in a healthy environment.
