Make sure Duke is on your bucket list if you are anywhere close to the area. Perfect, fun, beautiful and oh so tough and wonderful place to relax after you are done. First class in every aspect of the game.

Very good golf course, but pricey. Lots of big names here: RT Jones and Rees Jones. Interesting layout.

I played the Duke course a year ago back in the summer of 2007 and at the time wasn't registered with GolfLink so I haven't made my review until now. I thought the Duke course was fantastic and just absolutely loved it. It was in great shape and you would never even guess that you were in Durham, you felt like you were in a forest by yourself. My grandmother is in the Forest at Duke retirement home around the corner so we go to the Washington & Duke Inn fairly often and I'm always able to at least eyeball the course which always looks great. I'm a 12 handicap and have played and stayed at Pinehurst, Sea Island, and courses in Hilton Head and I can easily say that the Duke course is on par with those courses and I easily consider it one of my favorite inland courses that is not on a lake or mountain.

This is one of the best college courses in America. Not too many years ago it held the NCAA championship. If you are not used to the tall Bermuda, just put the ball a little in the back of your stance and it should help prevent you from catching it fat.

AWESOME College course...

You will love this course. Just hit an extra club into each of the elevated greens and you can score well - if you're not in the bunker. Great course - the best public access course in Durham.
