Detailed description

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.
