Rated 4 out of 5 by Kind of Disappointed I had high hopes coming to UNC but it was nothing special. I think Duke and NC state have superior golf courses and facilities. The course here was fairly easy given its a University course. The overall conditions were pretty good, some winter kill here and there, being more prominent on the greens. The whole experience was just lackluster given that this course is rated very highly in the state. The practice facilities were in my opinion subpar given its "UNC". If you can find a good deal on golfnow I would recommend but I would never pay rack rates for this course, I would however pay rack for Duke and NC state. August 26, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by On of my favorite courses Great course. The tee boxes and fairways were in great shape. The greens had been punched within the past few days but were very playable. The rough is thick, as in you can step on your ball and not see it thick, so that added a challenge not found at many of the other local courses. No complaints about UNC Finley, definitely one of my favorite courses in the area and in the best shape of any of the courses I have played this summer. August 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful course I love playing this course it's scenic and challenging. Easy to get out in mid week. They could use more water stations. August 18, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stay on the Short Grass This is a fantastic Tom Fazio redesign. Bermuda fairways and rough and bent grass greens. I repaired a few pitch marks left by groups ahead of us but the staff had done a good job overnight fixing them up. The greens had subtle breaks easy to over-read and rolled true. The rough had just been cut, was 3-4" deep and just swallowed the ball. Approach shots held well but miss a green and you need a flop shot in your bag to score. Compares favorably with Pinehurst #5. Bunkers would benefit from more sand, somewhat less densely packed but the total experience is very satisfying. I hope to get back to Finley as I expect to be in Chapel Hill again soon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Slow Course is in great shape. Greens rolled nicely and fairways were borderline perfect. However, it took 3 1/2 hours to play nine holes!! Teed off at 3:00 on Saturday. No ranger in sight. If anytime called for ejecting someone for slow play this round would have been the poster child. Group in front of us made the day memorable for all the wrong reasons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. July 29, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Finley 7/25/15 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Slow play The rough was too high. Hard to find balls and slowed play July 26, 2015
