Rated 5 out of 5 by badger8811 Very solid course
This is probably my second favorite course since I've moved here to NC. This course is challenging from the tips but allows for scoring on some holes. The overall facility is awesome, great practice area, it is WAY better than UNC and right there with DUKE. The overall conditions were very good, still some winter kill, which was somewhat disappointing given a University course and their budget but still nice. The golf carts with the Ipad GPS was nice but it sucks because they have trackers on them and shut off when driving in certain areas, that was the only bad thing. For some reason it was cart path only when I played even though the fairways were dry but again its a University course so they can be quirky. Overall I would highly recommend given some of the prices you can get on GNOW. I will return.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ryan8791283 Disappointed
Unfortunately I have played this course several times before and it has been a much better experience. I regret not leaving reviews after those rounds, but I felt compelled to do so this time. This was the worst experience I have had at Lonnie Poole. My first issue was with the girl at the snack bar. No personality and did not seem to know what she was doing. I also do not like that I had to wait until 11:00am to get a Bloody Mary, but that was the least of my concerns. The glaring issue this day was out on the course. I think every hole had some ground under repair. I also felt as though every hole had some maintenance guy screwing around doing something or other with no regard to the oncoming golfers. This is a pet peeve on a golf course. I have previously worked course maintenance, and know that these guys should have all this work complete by early morning. We teed off around 11am and these guys should have been scarce. It's ironic too since the course conditions were the worst I have seen. Blame gets put on the weather and climate, but unless it's a real drought like California is having, then there really are no excuses for poor course conditions. I hope it's better the next time I come here, but in the meantime I'll stick to playing UNC Finley.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slice86trc Always Interesting
First time playing course in a month or 2, but course is in nice shape considering the heat. Had to replace sod in some spots from winter but doesn't really impact round. Rough is pretty tough so hitting down fairway is always a good idea. Definitely will come back again, especially after first hole in one on 17.

Rated 3 out of 5 by z4thomas Great layout, below average conditions
The course was having some work done. Quite a few fairways with patchwork grass or large sod areas stil growing in. Greens were below average and not fully grown in. Could be a great course when healthy.

Really enjoyed playing Lonnie Poole Golf Course. Great view of the Raleigh skyline and the course was beautiful. Some dead spots, and construction going on but overall nice course.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tommytarheel Tough but fair
Wide fairways but lots of blind shots but if you play here a few times it could be more fun

Great facilities at the course to support NC State golf team and students. I love the course layout but it's still new course so course conditions not fantastic. I'd come back and play this course again!
