Tops on the list for the second consecutive year was Pinehurst No. 2. In all, courses in Pinehurst claimed seven of the top 16 courses.

The top rated course in the Triangle was Raleigh Country Club which checked in at No. 20. Lonnie Poole Golf Course claimed the No. 72 spot.

Durham’s Treyburn Country Club, Old Chatham Golf Club, Duke University Golf Club and Hope Valley Country Club all made the cut at Nos. 27, 28, 36 and 49, repectively.

UNC’s home course, Finley Golf club was voted in at No. 44, down three spots from last year.

    I have been to the SAS tourney several times in Prestonwood. Great layout and well kept up. Pretty course.
