Firethorne Country Club -- YARDAGE DIFFERENCE
Review by: Bill Johnson I enjoyed playing this course. The black tees are a little long for me at 6400 yards and the gold tees are to short at 5500 yards. I think they should make the gold tees at least 6000 yards.The course is tight but fair. At 5500 yards leave your driver at home.

Chapel Hill Country Club -- HARD TO GET ON - GREAT TO PLAY
Review by: Tar Heel Convert Course is a traditional style designed by Gene Hamm and renovated by John LaFoy in 1999. This is the only private course in Chapel Hill. Walking is encouraged and it is a great way to experience the course. Signature hole IS NOT # 14. It's # 10 which can require carry over water twice. Pin on this hole makes 3 to 4 clubs difference on second shot. It's a beauty! Only one hole without bunkers - the par 3 9th is about 175 uphill from middle tees. Out of bounds on many of the holes as the fairways rise and fall through a very established traditional and exclusive neighborhood. Greens are all large (with at least 6 different zones on each one for pin placement)and have many contours. Three putts are common - especially in spring and fall when the bent grass surface is kept very fast. Bring your thinking cap, but also bring your game if your fun comes from scoring well. It's not an easy course, but it's not Jack Nicklaus difficult either.
