Bring your A game - Dissapointed with the greens
Played Lonnie Poole on Tuesday. The layout is very difficult for long hitters playing the back tees as its designed to handle division I NCAA Golf. I didn't mind the challenge, but for the price of the round I was disappointed with the condition of the greens. The greens had many ball marks and overall were not to the same level of quality as the rest of the course. They weren't terrible by any means, but just were not what I had expected from such a nice place. I have played much cheaper courses with better rolling greens. The starter did tell us that the winter left dead spots in the fairways which was true, but I can overlook that and the rest of the grass on the fairways was excellent. For less money equal if not better conditions can be had.

Beautiful views. Challenging. Exceptional course condition and facilities.

Very fun course
The clubhouse is incredible, the range is great with plenty of greens to hit to. The course is hilly with amazing views and long grass everywhere. The course is mostly wide open off the tee. The front nine is fun with some good holes, but the back nine is very challenging with some of the best views a downtown course could ever have. Some of the fairways were burned out a little and no one repairs their divot on this course. The course was absolutely packed but pace was pretty good. Very very fun course with every hole unique.

I hate that I love playing this course! This was about the 5th or 6th time I have and I always leave feeling well challenged.
Greens are still in good shape. Winter really hurt a couple fairways.
Rangers were a little pushy considering it was cart path only.

Not What It Used To Be
Unfortunately, had a terrible experience playing at Lonnie Poole, which used to be one of my favorite golf courses. I've played it several times since it's been open, and even took lessons from Jeremy W, but I have never seen the course in such bad shape, from the fairways being in terrible condition, to the greens (including the collars around the greens being in really bad shape). I provided my feedback to the course via their website, in hopes that I would receive some sort of response/explanation as to the poor conditions, but it's been about 3 weeks now, and no word back. Unfortunately, I will not be returning anytime soon (probably the rest of this year), unless I'm assured conditions have drastically improved. For the price they want, there are too many other options that are in good shape, at the bare minimum, to waste money. Has so much potential, and previously one of the nicer courses around the area...next time, I'll make a different choice (UNC Finley, and I'm not even a Tarheel fan, but great golf course or Duke-even more pricey but always in GREAT shape). Sorry to have to report that LPGC was tore up!

Among the best anywhere
The course was still suffering from winter kill on many fairways so they were cart path only. Despite that they were still very playable. It is a great course. Super, scenic layout. Enough bite to make you think about things. I'm an average boogie golfer but I prefer that in a course. I've played 100s of course in the US and international and this course is memorable.

nice course - but in terrible shape
staff was very friendly and accomadating. The course set-up is unique and challenging, but the conidtioins of the course were pretty bad. Entire area around most of the greens and the actual greens themselves were pretty awful, can't imagine it will be any better thru the entire summer, it was like putting on honeycomb.
