Governors Club in Chapel Hill, NC.

It all started in 1987 with an extraordinary piece of property - 1,600 acres including Edwards Mountain, a 667-foot hill, with ravines, streams, old-growth woods and lakes. It was an inspired location for a private golf course/country club and residential community.

Jack Nicklaus created a 27-hole championship golf course that fully uses and enhances the property. There is a beautiful clubhouse with dining and event spaces. There are 8 lighted tennis courts (clay and hard courts), a complete Fitness Center with indoor & outdoor pools and a children's playground. Even though it is minutes from everything, Governors Club remains an oasis of natural beauty and privacy.
