Duke University Golf Club

Located at our sister property, the Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club, the beautiful 18-hole championship Duke University Golf Club is the only Robert Trent Jones-designed course in the region. Redesigned by Jones’ son, Rees, in 1994 the course is considered one of the top ten golf courses in North Carolina. Site of the 2001 NCAA Men's Golf Championship, the course consistently receives top rankings from Golf Digest, GolfWeek, Golf Magazine and the Zagat Survey. Professional instruction is also available for group or private lessons.

Walk, Jog, Explore

When you need a breath of fresh air, find yourself along the Al Buehler Trail, a three-mile walking/jogging trail that meanders through the verdant Duke Forest and offers breathtaking views of the award-winning Duke Golf Course.
