“Best in Durham”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

Course is priced on the higher end but there are awesome discounts for students and late play. The course is beautiful and well maintained, but is difficult with some of the hills and fast greens. Driving range is helpful and the putting green is located right off the bar patio. Great for a quick 9 or longer 18.

“Fabulous course in town, yet feels very rural”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2013

I LOVE golf courses without houses in sight, and the slopes and lovely fairways provide lots of interest along with beauty. For as nice a course as it is, I feel it's a true bargain.

“Outstanding golf course and venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2012

This course is outstanding. Very impressive views, great fairways and perfect greens... all with a large upscale hotel, restaurant and pro shop. This is by far one of the best courses in the area... we play this course of special occasions.

“Best public golf course in the Triangle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2012

Why do people think they cannot play at Duke? I often hear people express surprise that they can play at Duke - as if it were private. It is not. The new superintendent, Billy Weeks, has really turned the course around. It has always been a classic layout but the conditioning has often not been up to that standard. The fairways now feed all the way onto the putting surface so the course is more fair for lesser talented golfers. It is the most expensive course in the Triangle, but it is well worth it.

It is somewhat challenging, and the staff at the club house is outstanding. I look forward to returning!
