Stellar as usual.

Have been playing Lonnie Poole since it opened and enjoy it more it time I tee it up there.
Constantly eveolvong wioth tee box and hole placements make it more fun. Love the topography and the skyline views of Raleigh as well. I always meet and paired up with nice folks as well.

Great conditions; slow greens.

I always enjoy the course conditions and am still satisfied with the conditions during the winter months to play consistently in the colder weather. Greens were slow this round compared to a past round in November where the greens were very fast.

Highly recommend playing this course!

Very challenging, but interesting

I have played this very often and got over ninty scores usually. Anold parmer showed his ability to design golf courses very hard. I will try breaking my best score at this course continuously.

Perfect day to play golf

The course is challenging, especially bunkers before greens. I had fun to overcome the challenging conditions with friends under blue sky.

Must Play Here Again

I've played dozens of courses this year in several states and I look forward most to coming back to this course.
From the moment I arrived, everyone who works there was extremely polite friendly and helpful. The range and putting green were easily accessible and in good shape. The course was in excellent shape, the tee boxes were not beaten up, the fairways were in good shape, the rough wasn't easy to get out of but it wasn't impossible. The greens were challenging, I HIGHLY recommend taking a moment and looking at your putt from every angle because several were deceiving from only one angle.

One request

I love Lonnie Poole, but have one request: Please cut in a flat strip to walk up the 18th hole between the fairway and the green / apron. Walking along that sideways slanted hill is tough a the end of the round!

Great afternoon of golf

Loved the course; very interesting holes and elevation changes. Bent grass greens were great even though they had been lightly sanded -- rolled nicely and were quick. Pace of play was so-so; 4:05. Fairways were beautiful and the course didn't seem wet even though there had been heavy rain a few nights before. Traps were in good condition. I walked and carried the course and while a challenging walk, I didn't consider it to be at all undoable (and I'm 65)j.

It was too bad the wind was blowing. The course was in tournament condition. Greens were fast. It was hard to judge the distances with the wind.
