The Story of Governors Club


Beginning in 1987, the development team embraced the vision of Governors Club. They knew the rolling terrain was ideal for a 24-hour gated primary home residential community, and the mountainside would provide home sites with panoramic views in all directions. Over many months, they acquired 33 parcels of this land totaling approximately 1,600 acres...

The development team of Governors Club was comprised of experienced and seasoned real estate and country club executives who had been involved in four major residential developments and numerous subdivisions.


Through their incredible vision and keen foresight, this development team created a community unlike any other. Governors Club now enjoys recognition as one of the premier residential golf course communities in the Southeast.


Governors Club today is an award-winning 1,600-acre private golf community located in Chapel Hill, NC. Chapel Hill is part of the Triangle area of North Carolina along with the cities of Durham and Raleigh, the state capital. The Triangle offers Governors Club residents a wide variety of cultural and arts activities, educational opportunities, sporting events, and top-notch medical services.
