Chapel Hill, NC (January 4, 2017) - In 1987, an experienced and seasoned development team made up of real estate and country club executives embraced the vision of Governors Club. Acquiring 1,600 acres of pristine rolling hills around eastern North Carolina’s highest point, the 667 foot Edwards Mountain, they transformed this inspiring location into a unique 24-hour gated residential community.

The team envisioned mountainside home sites with panoramic views in all directions. They pictured a challenging golf course that would wind its way through the area’s ravines, streams, old-growth woods and lakes. And at the center of it all would be a 43,000-square-foot private club unlike any in the region.

Embracing the highest standards, the team brought on golf legend Jack Nicklaus to design a championship golf course that would fully utilize the terrain. Personally designed by Nicklaus, the result is a 27-hole Signature Golf Course that seamlessly traverses the contours of the natural landscape, resulting in some of the most dramatic golfing in the nation.

Since Governors Club first opened its gates in 1989, the community has received numerous local and national awards. Most importantly, the golf course and the Club have received the Distinguished Emerald Club of the World award by BoardRoom magazine, a designation given to the top 5 percent of private clubs in the world.

Today, Governors Club is recognized as one of the premier residential golf course communities in both North Carolina and the mid-Atlantic region. Offering an unparalleled combination of beauty and location for residents and guests, this desirable gated community is perfect for you. Whether you wish to buy an existing custom home or build the home of your dreams, Governors Club has something for everyone.
