Loonie Poole is a goat track! Do not waste your time or money. With all of the great courses in the area you can find somewhere in much better shape.

The course is amazing but hard as heck. If you are a beginner golf I would not suggest playing Lonnie Poole. It can play extremely long and there are tons of hazards. The bunkers are nearly impossible to get out of and the greens are challenging. It is obvious that NC State set this course up to be a collegiate course. I think the women's regionals are at this course in the near future. Unless you are a single digit handicapped you probably will not enjoy this course. I would suggest trying some of the other courses in Raleigh to tighten up your game before heading over to Lonnie Poole. The scenery is amazing as you can see downtown from the back 9 but it remains to be challenging through all 18 holes.

In regards to the condition and set up of the course, I think its one of the best around; however, the pace of play is absolutley rediculous here. I've played this course ever since it opened and its always been super slow. I could understand the slow play when the course first opened, based on everyone wanting to play a new course in such great proximity to Raleigh. I kept thinking that the number of rounds would level off, but I was told the other day that play at the course is up. I'm pretty sure the management is well aware of the pace of play issues, but it seems like they just don't really care. Secondly, I'd say managment might be a little too proud of the course...$50 during the week and $75 during the weekend. I'm really surprised this price point hasn't run off more folks.....but it appears it hasn't......I'll continue to use the range and putting green, as they are both great, but I just can't handle playing a round that last 6+ hours. If that ever changes, I'd play there all the time, unitl then I save the frustration.

Used a Groupon to play here. It started to rain at the turn and when we asked about a rain check, they would only give us half of what we paid for the Groupon, not the rest of the nine we didn't play. How freakin cheap can they get? Does NC State need the money that bad? Even at half the rate it wasn't all that great. The greens were terribly thin in spots and grass was dying at the edges.

Excellent course, but staff sucks. Called to make tee time and was told there was no airation or other process happening that would effect play. Then, after paying greens fees when we arrived, we were informed that two holes were closed for repairs and fees were still $84, I will not return.

Ehh. It's definitely not worth $75 on the weekend. The course itself has a nice layout and for the most part, the fairways and tee boxes are well kept. The Greens need a little work here and there, but overall, they're ok. The putting green and range is of decent quality, but all things considered the price point is just too high for what you get. Finley is a far superior course, facility and practice place and you can easily find a deal on Golfnow for $35 on the weekend. In five years and some more money in concentrated locations, Lonnie Poole could very well be a classy golf course. Until then, though, there are better, cheaper and more enjoyable places to play in the area. For example, Heritage in Wake Forest costs as much as State's course does on the weekend. Go play Heritage and then immediately play Lonnie Poole. What you get for the money at one location is understandable. What you get at another just isn't...

I just played superball on this course (handycap is >30). On a Saturday morning, it took about 4:30 to play (back nine played a lot faster). If I did this alone, it might add 2 hours which is clearly too long so gague your skill level and playing this course (or how you play it). Beautiful layout, Palmer designed a gem. Lot of fun to play it and some good scenery to boot. Elevation changes, bunkers everywhere. Staff and marshals were friendly, even when trying to speed us up.

played on a saturday and the pace of play was ridiculously slow. it took over 5 hours for our 4some to play a round. we complained to the ranger and he had all kinds of excuses for it. he asked me if i wanted them to make the course easier... i explained that i dont care if people find the course difficult or not, he should speed up the pace of play. after our round i spoke to the guys in the clubhouse about it and he also stated it was because of the course being difficult. in my opinion this is not a good reason for slow play. if this is an issue, maybe they should make some adjustments to the course or not take as many tee times over the weekends. i am a NCSU alum, but i cant see myself spending 5+ hours on the golf course for 18 holes.
