Finley Golf Course

Finley Golf Course is a popular local golf course.  It was originally designed by George Cobb.  Tom Fazio has since redesigned the course to provide more of a challenge.  Almost 500,000 rounds of golf are played here per year.  The course includes ponds and lakes, as well as rolling mounds and strategically placed bunkers that make Finley not only look different, but play different.

UNC Finley is considered to be one of the Triangle's most well kept Golf Courses and was recently rated North Carolina's 33rd Best Golf Course by Golf Today.  Course designer Tom Fazio has created a layout that, from the proper tees, will provide a positive experience to anyone from a touring pro to a golf rookie.

UNC's Finley Golf Course was selected the 11th best collegiate course in the country by Golfweek.  The poll took into account the quality of the golf course and whether students have easy access to it.  But, remember, you don't have to be a student to play there!

Finley posted a rating of 5.37 (out of 10) while the top-ranked course, Taconic Golf Club in Williamstown, Mass., came in with a 6.86 rating.  Finley was originally opened in 1949.  The course features a par 72 layout with five sets of tees ranging from 4,980 yards from the forward tees to 7,349 yards from the championship markers, thus presenting a stiff challenge to the best golfers while still remaining accessible to those of all skill levels.
