Detailed description of Duke University Golf Club

Duke University Golf Club is a Public 18 hole golf course located in Durham, North Carolina.

Duke University Golf Club first opened for play in 1957. The course was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr. The course was rennovated in 1994 by his oldest son, Rees Jones. The Duke University Golf Club Golf Course was built on rolling terrain and features fast greens and narrow fairways. Towering pine trees line all the fairways, and meandering streams come into play on a few holes. One of the key features to this course are its sharp changes in elevation, so expect some interesting lies. In addition, many strategically-placed bunkers guard the fairways and greens, and water hazards come into play on eight holes.

Par for the course is 72. From the back tees the course plays to 7,045 yards. From the forward tees the course measures 5,505 yards. The longest hole on the course is # 7, a par-5 that plays to 572 yards. The shortest hole on the course is # 4, a par-3 that plays to 159 yards from the back tees.

Watch out for # 18, a 457 yard par-4 challenge and the #1 handicap hole on the course. The easiest hole at Duke University Golf Club is # 4, the 159 yard par-3.

Great experience to play a course of this quality. Most of the greens are elevated with undulation. Be sure to use one club more. The sand in the bunker (yes I was in them) is very fine, almost like powder. I'll be back in the spring of 2016. Titleist: "If you love them, they'll love you back" Brian S.McMahan

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Expensive and worth it

Our group played here on a retreat from the frozen north, sight-unseeen, and we made a bad choice. It's a Robert Trent Jones design, and it lives up to his worst. Could be called "Dozer-mania" as there are moguls and sculpting everywhere. Not a very playable execution, despite great terrain and all manner of natural hazards. The whole course just seems tricked-up more than necessary.

Was Cart-Path-Only the day we played, and we were not informed of that in advance. We were also a bit surprised that the golf shop is on the second floor of a high rise...can't say that I've ever seen that before. The staff was nice enough, but we felt that the course was too over-the-top, especially in an area abounding in fine layouts. We do not recommend.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I won't play again, I wouldn't recommend this course
