Course is beautiful and in great shape. Greens are soft and roll true. Pace is decent even when backed up. Great value when you get a $40 hot deal!
UNC Finley 6/24/19
Great round of golf! Some of the best greens I’ve ever played. Fairways were plush when I found them. Play was a little slow. Almost a 5 hour round. All in all, an excellent experience! Even for a UK fan! By chance later that evening, I happened to be on the other side of Raleigh at a restaurant sitting beside the Finley superintendent. Carl was super cool and really wanted to know what I thought about the course. Great guy that really cares about his work. Def recommend giving the track a run if you haven’t!
jdlish, thank you for your kind words! We hope to see you again at the course very soon for another 5-star experience. Thanks for choosing UNC Finley Golf Course.
Great Fazio Course
Me and a friend played at 7:30 am on a Sunday morning using a GolfNow Hot Deal. We were let off the 1st tee with just the two of us which was what we wanted. Pace of play was fantastic and we finished just at or under 3 hours. The course was in great condition, greens are a tad slow here compared to the area but certainly not due to poor green conditions, just the type of grass. I think UNC is fairly priced as you can play often on a hot deal using GolfNow. I personally wouldnt play often here at the full price of $75+. I think $50 is a fair price for the course.
Will continue playing here no doubt.

Hello. Thank you for your 5-star rating! Please book another round with us soon, and thanks for choosing UNC Finley.
They let a fivesome out who were unbelievably slow. No sign of a Marshall to move play on. I was just told to “hit a couple balls”, but was pressured from behind because there was a threesome playing at a reasonable pace behind me.

Played the UNC home course while visiting Raleigh. Condition and design impressed me. It is a fair but challenging course, glad I chose to play.

Hi, Marc. Thank you for visiting us @UNCFinleyGolfCourse. We appreciate your 4-star rating and review. We hope you join us for another round soon.
Great design. Slow greens.
I have played this wonderful course for over 20 years. It's a great design and conditions are always spectacular. The only downside is that they don't monitor pace of play and that they refuse to cut or roll the great greens. Finley's greens are considerably slower than its fine neighbors, even on a spectacular 80 degree day with no chance of burning. This makes it very difficult to putt if you play anywhere else. I don't play here nearly as much as I used to because of the pace of the greens.

Best Course In The Triangle
I had an amazing time at UNC Finley. The course was in excellent. The greens were perfect and rolled nicely. The hole layouts were very fun. Shorter course which I loved. I use to bounce around to different courses now Finley will be my go to.

Course Under Water
I understand that the rain is completely out of the course’s control, and we’ve been getting a lot of it. However, when we played Sunday morning, it hadn’t rained since Friday and the course was barely playable. There was practically standing water or mud on every tee box and the same could be said about every fairway lie you got. Again, not that the staff has control over the weather or drainage, but they do have control over how much they charge you in conditions like that. And, full price should NOT be the answer there. We should have known when the range was closed because of standing water that the course would be in such bad shape, but even more so, the staff should have been offering discounted rates to play.

Love the course, but wish I had walked
I've played Finley many times in the past, but it's usually pretty expensive to play, especially in season, so when I find a good deal like this one, I take it. Normally, I'd happily ride, but I wish I had walked this time around because carts had to stay on paths, and Finley's paths are set pretty far off the fairway in spots. I just didn't have my push cart with me. The course was very wet, which was to be expected because of the copious rain in the previous days and weeks. The greens were in pretty good shape, though. The staff is very friendly, and the clubhouse is one of the best in the area. The practice range is awesome (very big) as is the putting green.
Thank you for the fantastic 5-star review of our golf course. We appreciate you taking the time and hope you will let us know if you ever need anything while you are here. Come back and see us again very soon for more of the best golf in town.
Excellent condition and layout, a little wet but that’s winter for ya, get your short game ready though
Thanks Mmckinney1 as we appreciate your 4-star rating and review. It is great to see you had an enjoyable time on the course and we hope you join us for another round soon here at UNC Finley Golf Course.
Ground under repair
When I booked the round I wasn’t aware the front nine was under repair. There wasn’t any mention of the front nine greens being spiked through golfNOW.com. This, we played the back nine twice. Also, I was able to hook up with two people and when they called a few days earlier they were not aware of the course maintenance taking place either. I did play the course back in December of 2018 and was pleased back then. Better communication would have been helpful.

Although the course was a little wet from all the rain, it’s always great to play Finley. The staff was great and the layout is beautiful.
