About Old Chatham Golf Club
Established in 2001, Old Chatham was a vision of Triangle area business leaders. Their dream of a golf course central to Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, yet tucked away from the region’s rapid growth, became a reality. Offering 400 acres of rolling hills rich in native pines and oaks and just minutes from the I-40 corridor, Old Chatham is unlike any golf course in the Triangle.

Designed by the renowned golf course architect, Rees Jones, the idea behind the Club is to let nature define it. The lines from tee to green remain very similar to what they were before ground was ever broken. This provides members and guests a place to escape to the tranquility of an uncrowded retreat, characterized by one-of-a-kind hospitality with an emphasis on quality and comfort.
