The Duke U. Golf course after playing UNC course. I have always loved Duke basketball and it felt like I had cheated on Duke so I simply had to play it. Lol!
I did not have a tee time and showed up about 11:40 on a Friday, actually game day of the Miami game. I checked in and they said it was pretty open and next tee time was at noon. Perfect.
And the staff was beyond hospitable at every touch point from check in to the starter riding with me to first hole since I had never played it before and the starter also gave plenty of pointers. To top it off, there was an awesome gentleman waiting at 18 to clean my clubs while I putted out. Fabulous!
I played the course in about 3 hours and 45 minutes as I caught a threesome on number 9. So, I took a work call at 10 and caught threesome again at 13. They played well simply nature of being a solo on pretty busy day. And I never saw the noon tee time behind me.
The course was in great shape wit manicures fairways with a couple inch of rough. The layout was fun with doglegs left and right, water on several holes and a mix of short and long par fours. The par fives were opportunities to be on the green in two with example being Number 9 and I cannot state it enough on that hole as it is more important to be in that fairway to have an awesome look at the hole and the Washington Inn. Cool! The greens were perfection and fun to putt on and the grain mattered as if with the grain, boy was it slick. Great layout and fun course!
The Pro Shop is beautiful with all of that Duke blue popping!! And the 19th hole is awesome, sitting outside with a cold beverage and seeing people on practice green and at 18.
Enjoy a classic beauty in the Duke University Golf Club!
