The Lonnie Poole Golf Course is a dream come true for NC State University. The stunning layout has been designed by Arnold Palmer and the design team at Arnold Palmer Design Company (including Erik Larsen and Brandon Johnson, both NC State graduates). With breathtaking views of the Raleigh skyline and the award winning Centennial Campus, the golf course has become a favorite in the golf community. The purpose of the facility is to provide a public golf course on the Centennial Campus of NC State University that serves as a venue for the men's and women's varsity golf teams.

It also facilitates turfgrass and storm water research associated with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS). Likewise, the golf course serves as a teaching and training facility for the Professional Golf Management (PGM) Program in the College of Natural Resources. The course is very playable for all skill levels and a large challenge to low handicap players. We feel that you will find this course as one of the finest in the area, one of the best university facilities, and worthy of one of the premier universities in the nation.

Great course The layout is fantastic, excellent variety of holes and elevation changes combined with beautiful scenery. The fairways are still brown and patchy in some spots but that's to be expected this time of year. Greens were in great shape and the topography made reading them challenging. The course was crowded and the pace of play suffered (over 5 hrs). Can't wait to come back when everything is green, will surely give it 5 stars then April 24, 2015
terrible course worst course ive ever played. the course was in terrible shape. The course is very difficult and no fun to play. April 24, 2015
Great course. Great value I had been wanting to play Lonnie Poole for while, and had a chance on a recent business trip to Raleigh. Frankly I was more than pleased. LOVED the course, even though I did not play particularly well that day. Challenging course, but multiple tees allow you to match to your game/skill level. Local knowledge on some holes would be helpful for next time...and there definitely will be a next time. Lots of topography variety, greens in good shape. I would highly recommend the course.

pace of pksy Way too slow. Twe times too close together. Need a Marshall to keep track. People playing the tips and can't get off the twe box. April 14, 2015
Give this course a few more weeks The grass is still dormant, but the course is playable and the greens are rolling true. Brand new club house and grill. Very nice staff. We played behind a foursome who eventually let us play through and the two of us walked off in just about 4 hours. I really wish i could have seen it when it was totally green. Nice views of downtown. April 10, 2015
GREAT TRACK Great lay out. Staff is vey out going and friendly. April 3, 2015
Does it Matter Did not enjoy being behind all the NC State and Duke walkers. Why would they do this on a Sunday when everyone wants to get home for the Super Bowl? Doesn't matter what I say as nobody will respond or care what I think... February 3, 2015
Challenging course Beautiful course with skyline of Raleigh visible on many holes. Course plays long and many hazards to overcome. If you are going to score well at Lonnie Poole you had a 225 yard drive and a 225 yard three wood to a well bunkered green on most par 4 holes. Par 5 holes are over 500 yards so long and straight is good. Great course but vary challenging. Great location and great staff and amenities. Plan to play again soon. February 1, 2015
