Best Golf Courses Near Chapel Hill, NC
In Chapel Hill, a great college town that is home to the University of North Carolina Tar Heels, there’s a saying that God’s favorite color is Carolina Blue. If you see a blue sky, it’s a great day to make a tee time at courses such as the Tom Fazio-designed UNC Finley Golf Club, which is fun to play with wide fairways and fast greens; the Davis Love III-designed Jordan Lake Golf Club, an environmentally sensitive layout that boasts beautiful par3s; and Duke’s home course, Duke University Golf Club, a Robert Trent Jones, Sr./Rees Jones creation that rambles over gently rolling terrain interspersed with unusual elevation changes. Chapel Hill can put you in a good mood no matter what you shoot on the golf course. The main drag in town is Franklin Street, where you’ll find the edge of campus and everything from galleries to restaurants, breweries, and dive bars. Chapel Hill also has one of the best live music scenes in the Southeast. None of the bands are likely to be singing about Chapel Hill’s golf, but you might.
