The Triangle has a number of great golf courses nearby. Here are just a few of examples:

  • Governors Club: private club, 36 holes
  • Chapel Ridge: one of my favorite courses in the area
  • The Preserve: a little more challenging due to environmentally-sensitive areas
  • Finley: UNC’s course… a bit expensive, but a great alternative
  • Chapel Hill Country Club: private course across from Finley
  • Old Chatham: very exclusive, so I haven’t had an opportunity to play this one yet
  • Sanford Municipal: good course and very inexpensive during the week.
  • Tobacco Road: fun course (not for everyone, though), about 45 minutes from Chapel Hill
  • Pinehurst: golf capital of the world, about 60 minutes from Chapel Hill
Swing straight!
