The UNC Finley Golf Club
Flat, Beautiful and Expensive Course
University of North Carolina's premier course which was ranked 52nd among favorite courses nationwide chosen by GolfNow customers. I was visiting my son who was attending Duke Univ. The course is flat. Bunkers and water are strategically located so it is not so easy to get high scores. Because of winter season, grass color has completely turned light brown except putting greens so it is almost undistinguishable between fairway and rough. But I liked the course and understood why it was ranked 52nd. It must be much nicer to play in this course in summer when grass is green. $52 with 29% discount by GolfNow is not cheap, though.

Great Floridian Course in the middle of North Carolina
I have always heard about the course, but never played in all these years. My lost. This is a beautiful course with a nice practice facility and new club house. The outside staff was exceptional, ie marshall and cart return. But the pro shop staff at university courses seem to be always manned by students who have not mastered exceptional customer service. Finley was no different. Oh well. Tom Fazio puts everything right in front of you without gimmicks, yet still a vision and challenge. Probably the nicest public course in Raleigh/Durham although Duke/NC State might disagree.

Nice and fair course
T course is in very good condition, but one of the more expensive public courses in RDU area. The staff and course had everything right except one thing. Since this was mid-week during November, the course did not have a ranger or any staff roaming the course. Typically this would have been fine, except the 4-some ahead of us was not familiar with the course and left the course after 9 holes for some refreshments. Typically this is fine, but at this course you go straight from 9 to 10 and then hit the snack bar as you pass buy on the way to the 12th hole. This oversight caused our group and the two groups behind us to get back up as this group rushed out to stay infront of us and then did not allow us to play through. A quality ranger could have prevented this problem.

Fair course, expensive but very well maintained.
Excellent condition, well marked, fair course but can get challenging depending on your tee choice and if the pins are placed in tough locations. Staff very friendly. It's a little expensive (paid around $60 for a morning tee time so makes it tough for a guy on a budget but all in all great course.
