The scene at Duke University Golf Club, the famed golf facility at Washington Duke Inn & Golf Club, is a wonderfully maintained course that doesn’t wow with any gimmicky holes; it merely dazzles with smooth greens, hypnotic backdrops of tall pines and deceptively challenging water hazards at periodic spots. These characteristics rang true when legendary golf architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed the course in the 1950s, and it only continued when Jones’ son Rees reconfigured the site back in 1993. But you’ll have a feel for the tranquil surroundings long before your opening drive when you take a couple of swings from the manicured practice facility.
