Chapel Hill + Durham + Raleigh = The Triangle

Few metropolitan areas have so much to offer and are so livable

Governors Club offers the best of everything - a remarkably beautiful and serene community with an award-winning country club. But it is also part of one of the most vibrant metro areas in the U.S. - The Triangle. Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Durham and nearby towns have over 1.5 million people in four counties. The population supports outstanding resources, but the large geographical size reduces congestion and gives each town a distinctive character. The economy is strong and highly diversified.

Travel Is Easy, Fast & Direct

Governors Club is 25 minutes from RDU, one of the best airports in the Southeast

With its central location (Governors Club is about midway between Boston and Miami), it is easy to drive anywhere on the East Coast or have friends stop by to see you when they travel. Within North Carolina, Governors Club is almost equidistant from the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Atlantic Coast beaches and Outer Banks.


World-Class Education & Healthcare

Among the finest in the U.S., minutes from Governors Club

College towns have a lot to offer - a stimulating intellectual environment, college sports and more. The Triangle is exceptional because it has not one, but THREE world-class universities (University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Duke and North Carolina State University). Each offers undergraduate, graduate and continuing education programs. All field NCAA Division I teams in the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) - one of the most competitive in the U.S.

UNC Chapel Hill

The oldest state university in the U.S., chartered in 1789. Outstanding undergraduate, graduate and continuing educational programs. Strong NCAA sports and many cultural and arts program, all less than 15 minutes from Governors Club.

Duke University

NC State University

The largest university in the Carolinas, NCSU offers 104 undergraduate majors and many graduate programs. The University is widely respected for its engineering, agriculture, life sciences and textiles/design programs.

Some of the Finest Medical Care in the World

Some college towns also have good medical facilities, but Governors Club is just minutes from TWO of the finest teaching and research hospitals in the U.S. - UNC and Duke. They are not just good, but great -- offering some of the best care in both adult and pediatric specialties.

Few cities have resources like these and even fewer golf course and residential communities offer the quality or quantity of education and healthcare resources available to Governors Club residents.
