The 9th green at
UNC Finley Golf Course

UNC Finley Golf Course was chosen as one of the top 50 public golf courses in Golf World's inaugural "Readers' Choice Awards." UNC Finley was voted 39th in the public category as Golf World readers were asked to evaluate the nation's courses in three distinct categories - public, private and resort. The rankings were featured in the October 17 issue of Golf World and can be viewed by clicking here.

The readers' evaluations were based on 13 different performance criteria, such as quality of the course, course conditions, reputation/prestige and service. Over 21,000 individual golf course evaluations were received and the top 50 courses in each category, as voted by Golf World's readers, are featured in the magazine.

UNC Finley received its highest ranking in the off course activities/amenities category, but also ranked high in quality of course, condition of course and overall value.

The other public courses in North Carolina that were selected in the top 50 were Tobacco Road Golf Club in Sanford (#5), Legacy Golf Links in Aberdeen (#25) and Ocean Ridge Plantation in Ocean Isle Beach (#29).

There were no North Carolina courses chosen in the private category and in the resort category the following were selected: Pinehurst Resort in Pinehurst (#5), Pine Needles Lodge & Golf Club in Southern Pines (#27) and Sea Trail Golf Resort in Sunset Beach (#37).
