Experience Award-Winning Golf at the Duke University Golf Club

Enjoy a fun and challenging day with friends, family or colleagues on one Durham’s most celebrated golf courses. The beautiful 18-hole championship Duke University Golf Club opened in 1957 and is a Robert Trent Jones, Sr.-designed course. Redesigned by Jones’ son Rees in 1994, the Duke University Golf Club was the site of the 2001 NCAA Men's Golf Championship, and is considered one of the top ten golf courses in North Carolina. The course has also received top rankings from Golf Digest, GolfWeek, Golf Magazine and the Zagat Survey, and was recently voted as the best public course in the Triangle by the Triangle Business Journal.

However, more than its famous fairways that garners acclaim. The golf club’s state-of-art practice area boasts a driving range, six putting and chipping greens, seven sand bunkers and eight target greens – all surrounded by a grove of tall pines and stately hardwoods. Our Golf Shop has also been recognized by the PGA as one of the best in the Carolinas, and includes breathtaking views of the course as well as easy access to lockers and the Inn’s Fitness Center.

For guests looking to perfect their swing, six PGA Professionals and one Master PGA Professional are on staff and available for group or private lessons.

Tee times available 14 days in advance for the general public and up to 30 days in advance for hotel guests. Visit the Duke Golf Club website for pricing and additional information.
