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.

Challenging Course I am a 14 handicap and fon this a fun challenge. I played with some members of the course so they helped me navigate and choose shots. The course is user construction in spots for improvements. Other than that it is in beautiful shape. August 18, 2014
Great day on the links! Thoroughly enjoyed the round. Great staff and the layout of the course is spectacular! Very picturesque and challenging but fair. Greens were perfect and fast. Would definitely play it again!! August 17, 2014
Nice course with lots of elevation changes Played this course for the first time yesterday. Really nice course. Fairways and greens were in good condition. Currently back 9 is having sand for the traps changed out and 2 holes were not playable, but still had a great time on the course. Fairways are nice and wide to accommodate any level of golfer. Play from the back tee markers would be a really tough and long play. August 12, 2014
Bunker and Tee Box renovation in progress They are in the middle of a bunker and tee box renovation. I was not happy to find 2 holes closed due to bunker renovation and allot of tee boxes closed due to being re-soded. It would have been nice to know this up front August 8, 2014
Will be good once repairs are done The course was currently refurbishing the sand traps and fairway bunkers on holes 12 and 13. Those holes were actually closed and we didn't get to play them. We knew going in that they were closed but still chose to play there. The course has lots of elevation changes and tons of fairway bunkers so you better hit them straight. The guy I played with lost many balls in our round. I lost 3 myself. I believe once the course finishes all of the repairs they are making that it will be a course we will want to play again. They said that all repairs are supposed to be completed by September. August 8, 2014
Lonnie Poor Course was under serious construction... 2 holes completely closed, tee boxes dug up, construction equipment everywhere. Greenskeepers decided to change hole locations while I am playing the hole instead of waiting till after I finished.... Play somewhere else... August 6, 2014
Young good course that will be very good The course is only 5 years old. During my round, the course bunker improvement construction was talking place which cause some minor issues. Ultimately, I believe it will become a very good and challenging course when it matures. August 2, 2014
Turmoil I know there is a course alert symbol for LP but you have no idea. LP is in the process of removing all those "natural areas (with weeds), and replacing them with standard type bunkers. All of them...and there are a lot. There were 2 holes closed completely. 2-3 more had construction on the bunkers going on and you played those holes among the workers. There were a total of 4 tees closed having been rebuilt and freshly resodded, so those holes all played extremely short. Also all the bunkers that have been reworked have new white sand that hasn't had time to settle, so they were extremely difficult to play out of. There was a constant buzz of tractors, work vehicles, etc going back and forth all during the round. It's good to see they are working to improve the course, but all this combined was not conducive to an enjoyable round of golf. I would not recommend playing there to anyone until next year. And no reduction in the fees to boot! hmmmmm July 31, 2014
