Governors Club is a beautiful residential community located in the Piedmont region of North Carolina about five miles south of Chapel Hill and Durham. It's adjacent to the cities and towns of the Research Triangle, which gives us access to all of the business, cultural, health, educational, sports, culinary and recreational amenities of this renowned and often-cited mecca for various segments of the population. It includes the state capital, Research Triangle Park and numerous educational institutions, including the University of North Carolina, Duke University and North Carolina State University.
About Governors Club
While close to these urban amenities, the community itself is situated on 1500 private acres of rolling, wooded land dominated by Edwards Mountain, which at 667 feet is the highest point between Hillsborough and Siler City. In addition to approximately 1200 home sites, the Governors Club community includes Governors Club, Inc., a private country club with a beautiful clubhouse (photo above) and superb recreational facilities. The Club prides itself on its 27-hole Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, its Wellness Center (with family-friendly indoor and outdoor swimming pools) and its tennis and playground facilities.
Many Lifestyles Represented Here
Governors Club is a community of interesting, diverse people who are active in social and volunteer organizations inside and outside the gates. They come from all over the U.S. and many foreign countries. About one-third of the community is families with children; one-third, working professionals; and one-third, active retirees. Properties in our 11 separate neighborhoods range from village homes or townhouses to grand estates that accommodate a wide range of incomes and lifestyles. Information packets are available at both the Mt Carmel Church and Lystra Road gatehouses.
Our Property Owners Association
Governors Club property owners automatically become members of the award-winning Governors Club Property Owners Association (GC POA). The purpose of the POA, and the rights and responsibilities of its members, are described in the Association's Articles of Incorporation, By-laws and Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions. The GC POA is a volunteer organization governed by an elected Board of Directors, which is assisted by the management firm, Community Association Services. The POA also maintains its own "city hall" building with adjacent parking and community park facilities.
