Mill Creek, 6/6/2021

Mill Creek played host to 44 RDUgolf tour members in our 7th event.

This OFFICIALLY kicks off the 2nd half of our inaugural season.

Mill Creek is nestled into Mebane, NC; 30 minutes west of Durham and should be added to every golfers rotation of courses.  
The fairways were lush, greens were pure, practice areas were immaculate, and the layout is amazing!


This is all played second-fiddle to the course staff; Head Pro Tyler Lail, and Assistant Pro Ben Holland are absolute professionals and put this event over the top. From day one of schedule, to giving us some tough pin placements, to the pyramids of balls on the range, to “Welcome RDUgolf Tour” on the marquee of the club house. The extra touches of class from Tyler and Ben, all the way to the starters/rangers, are absolutely second to none.

If you don’t visit Mill Creek for the amazing layout and pristine conditions, visit the course to support the amazing people.

Congratulations to Del Smith on taking home the W!
Del has become one of the most enjoyable, charismatic golfers on the tour and has steadily been improving throughout the season. 
He has now officially qualified for the Tour Championship at Talamore in October!
