The UNC Finley Golf Club
What a treat!
Just a gorgeous layout; very fair.
Little bit of a walk between holes 11 and 12, but certainly worth it
Can't wait to play again!

Enjoy the large greens and the fact that every hole is different. Stay out of the deep greenside bunkers. Grass is still dormant, but fairways were in pretty good shape. Greens were in good shape - no one is repairing ball marks. Love the oversized bunker rakes. You can find lots of errant drives in the woods between #16 and #17. Course is not worth $70, but if you can get it for $50 or less, I think you'll enjoy it.

Top course in triangle
One of the top courses in the triangle. A little pricey but for the money you get excellent pace of play (4 hour round) as well as great conditions especially coming out of hard winter.

UNC Finley is always a great course to play, it will challenge all players and make you think about your next shot.

Finley is the best public course in the triangle, and when you can get a great deal on GolfNow, it's a great value. Consistently in good shape, this course offers challenges for any level of play. My favorite locally, and should be on the short list for public courses in NC.

Enjoyed it very much!
UNC Finley is a great course, challenging but except for a couple of par 3s I don't recall any hazzards to really worry about. The burmuda grass was still dormant the day I played (3/26/2014) but the greens were great and, overall, the course was in very good condition.
My one reget to no fault of UNC Finley was that the winds were blowing in excess of 25 miles an hour, so I did not played very well but I enjoyed the course and would play it again in in a heartbeat.

Great course==cart path only on all holes.!
Unfortunately it was cart path only and my father in law, who is 77, had a difficult time physically. We weren't informed of this until reached the starter. Finley is a great course but some concession should be made for seniors.

We got a good deal of $29/person as walkers through GolfNow.com. Having an out-of-town guest, we were going to rent push carts at Finley. The unfriendly guy behind the desk quoted me $15/cart! I said, "Whaaaaat?" He repeated it, so I asked about a riding cart and he said $18/person. We rode.
I play a lot of different courses and usually rent a push cart to walk and enjoy the course. NEVER has a course wanted more than $5-8 for a cart. Never!
What are they thinking? Or is this just a another course that is discouraging walkers by jacking up the push cart price to the point where people who are too old to carry their own bags are riding, and putting more cash in the till?
And UNC is a non-profit organization?
