The UNC Finley Golf Club
great course but very slow pace of play
Great course in great shape. Unfortunately played 9 behind foursome that had almost 2 holes open in front of them. Took almost 3 hours to play nine. Rangers should have made them skip a hole or two, or leave.

One of my favorite courses to play, first time I've played it this year. Tee boxes and fairways were in great shape but the majority of the greens were chewed up more than normal. I was very surprised at this, which means golfers you need to do your part and fix your divots and course management do whatever it is you do to help repair them quickly! The most upsetting thing was that all of the water coolers were empty. We tee'd off around 4, the starter repeatedly stated drink plenty of water! Stay hydrated pretty hard to do when you can't refill your water bottle and didn't have a food and beverage cart going around. Also the grill closed at 6 so as we were making the turn we had to get leftover food. UNC has the best grill at a golf course I've had and it was disappointing not to be able to get anything at 6:20pm on a Saturday afternoon. I make it a point to be hungry at the turn the food Is so good. I can understand weekdays closing at that time but on a Saturday during golf season I expected to get some fresh food at a course with Finleys reputation. If you've never played I highley recommend it, the layout and conditions are overall good, if you play in the afternoon just bring plenty of water in case you catch a bad scenario like we did.

The rough was too high. Hard to find balls and slowed play

As a person who has only been golfing for less than 12 months, I wanted to play a very challenging course just to see how I would do. I loved the experience. I was paired with one of the workers at the club and two regulars. They were very patient with me and gave me great pointers on improving my game which helped the experience even more. I look froward to playing here again.

Course in nice shape
Course is in best shape of the year. It feels and plays like a premium coastal course.

Finley is in excellent shape. The rough is up in spots so you have to control your ball and be aware. The back 9 is especially challenging and you have to be able to hit all the clubs in your bag. Fantastic course.

Beautiful course, outstanding staff
One of our favorites! Course was beautiful and although we were rained out, we look forward to returning soon on a rain check!

Course in great shape
2 things! We had to hit off of mats at the range, which I have no problem with, but the mats were completely worn out, they looked 20 years old. They close the grill @ 1:30 and make food to just sit there for the rest of the day! The food was awful! If you're going to charge an arm & leg for the food at least make it editable! The course was in awesome shape & the staff was great.
