Governors Club Clubhouse
Perhaps one of the most presitigous luxury communities in the Chapel Hill and Triangle area, Governors Club is regarded as one of the most popular communities to live in. Governors club is massive with its 1,600 acres and roughly 1,200 single family home sites. However, much of the space is dedicated to the award winning Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and the Governors Club Country Club. Despite this, residents enjoy a breath-taking countryside and the intellectual and creative environment of Chapel Hill.
Due to the massive size of the community, Governors Club is actually made up of multiple, smaller neighborhoods with unique characteristics. This subdivision is great for giving residents a smaller, more unique feel instead, instead of a single home within a massive conglomerate. Residents of these homes come from all of the place. Homes are occupied evenly by families, retirees and working professionals. There are a variety of homes too, from village homes to grand estates. Governors Club aims to accommodate a wide range of incomes and lifestyles.
Most residents are new to the area and are quick to lend a hand and forge new relationships with their neighborhoods. Community wide events such as potlucks and get-together serve as casual encounters for residents looking to make friends in the area.
Perhaps the most popular of the community amenities is the Governors Club Country Club and its 27-hole Jack Nicklaus golf course. However, the private club also provides access to multiple swimming pools, tennis courts, a clubhouse and much more. The club is perfect for family get-togethers, weddings, or any kind of event you may be interested in hosting. The club is very popular among residents, and a reflection of the lifestyle found in the neighborhood.
While the country club is a popular choice among residents, the community has much more to offer such as its numerous parks, sidewalks and walking trails for the active individual. The neighborhood is also home to a small community lake. In addition, Jordan Lake is located just around the corner. The community likes to stay active, and hosts plenty of events to keep residents busy. Some of these events include an art show, a dog show, book clubs, study groups, hiking clubs and a garden club.
If none of these local amenities satisfy residents of the Governors Club, the community is closely located to Chapel Hill and the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill which offer a never-ending list of activities. Strategically positioned in the Triangle, residents of the Governors Club never have to stray too far from home, and will never want to
