Challenging course, fun for all golfers
UNC Finley was one of the better courses I've played in the Triangle. The course was in great shape from tee boxes to greens. The greens lacked consistency, probably based on recent rainfall, but coupled with elevation and drainage, it was difficult to adjust to different green speeds.
Generally, the course was free of major water hazards though a few holes played along and over water or shrubbery. If you cleared the hazards, you have very large and well-maintained fairways to play from Be careful of the fairway bunkers, they're placed in the perfect spots to screw up a long drive.

Enjoyable all-around experience
Course in great shape and all staff encountered were extremely friendly from the pro shop to grill. Booked as single but matched up with 3 other golfers - 2 locals and another visitor who also contributed to the overall positive experience. This is a first class facility and one of the best university courses I have been fortunate to play among many. I plan on playing again when in the area. Thanks Finley for a great time and experience.

Great Layout and Condition
My first time playing UNC Finley. We enjoyed the day completely. Pace of play was perfect, no rushing or waiting. The course condition was perfect. I highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to play a high end course for a moderate fee.

Nice Course. Bad Staff
We played last Thursday night. There were storms in the area, but not close. The ranger came out after three holes and said we could get a rain check for the round if we wanted to come in now. The weather wasn't bad at that moment so we finished the nine. At the turn the weather started going downhill and we decided to call it quits, we went in to talk to the attendant and asked about the possibility of a nine hole rain check.
His response was that we were already warned and if we wanted a rain check we should have come in. We told him we understood but the weather wasn't bad and we wanted to finish the nine. We weren't asking for a full 18 check just for the nine we didn't get to finish. He said we didn't even pay the full rate and that they "don't give warnings so we could keep playing as many as we felt like" I asked him what he meant by "paying the full rate" and he said we booked through Golf Now. I told him that's where their website took me to book it.
If that was truly their policy and the guy explained it in a non elitist, condescending manner I would have been OK with it. He talked to us like we were children, and then implied we were not as important since we booked through Golf Now.
Great course, but will not be back.

This course is a pleasure to play. Great conditions and 14 unique holes that are fair and the right amount of challenging.
