Love This Course
Lonnie Poole will never bore you. There's a challenge on every hole, try it you'll like it. I would recommend this course for an intermediate golfer as hitting the fairways is crucial.
The fairways are turning dormant however greens are still in great shape.

Lonnie Poole has improved greatly
The last time I played Lonnie Poole was before their new clubhouse was built and I thought that the course at that time was very hard. Now they have the new club house built, and it is beautiful, they have also done some course improvements. One that I greatly appreciate is they took all of the "love" grass out! Before there was "love" grass in the sand traps and it was extremely unfair, I thought. Now all of the sand traps are beautiful, if you aren't in them, and the course plays much fairerr. They have also taken alot of woods out and opened up areas around the greens. The course is very nice and now rates as one of my favorites and a little better the UNC Finley, and I'm a UNC fan...The carts all of gps and maps of the course!

We enjoyed our vist to LP.
The staff was very friendly from the Bag drop - to the Check in - to the Starter. The course was wonderful. The GPS in the Carts was very helpful. We got a great deal on Golfnow and we look forward to coming back soon.

Course was in in fantastic shape. The greens were a little quicker than usual, but that is what made it a little different from the other times I have played it.

Great for the price!
GolfNow had LP for $27. Couldn't pass that up. The course was in great condition. The greens were nice and fast but very true. When putting, don't play the break, because it won't break!
Oh yeah, avoid the bunkers, it's real sand.

Always a treat playing here. We got on late in the afternoon and was not able to play all 18 holes but I would go back anytime. Excellent experience. Not for the faint of heart! This course can (and will) eat your lunch!

One and (probably) done!
First of all, let me just say that I could normally not afford to play this course, but when a GolfNow offering popped up for $30/person, I jumped at it, as it's usually $60-80/round. The guys who were paired with us were much the same, as they won a round as a gift at some event, but get this - they still had to pay $25 each to share a cart. Really, NCSU? REALLY?? That being said, let's get through the obvious - the course was incredibly beautiful and pristine. Some of the vistas were breathless. The natural and native areas throughout the course are superbly placed and absolutely increased my enjoyment. The onboard gps was perfect! What lessened my enjoyment was the lack of instructions from the staff (who knew we were first-timers) - we weren't advised where to buy snacks, where to go to grab our cart, that we were paired with anyone and to wait for them. Also disappointing was the unusual number of golfers on the course with boom-boxes blasting bad country music - seems like a course ranger would occasionally meander by to check on such things but none was ever around. Overall, it was really good. Better customer service would have made it just about perfect. I'm "one and done" mostly because I'll probably never find a deal like that again. There are great golf deals out there, but NCSU obviously likes to weed out us scrubs by regularly asking a king's ransom to play Lonnie Poole. BTW - I'm a big Wolfpack fan and broke 90 on my outing.
