Golf Advisor: Top Courses in North Carolina
Greens are So-So
The course is in great condition other than the greens. Greens have lots of thin areas and bare spots around the collars. Rest of course in great condition.
We need some nite temps into the low 60's to get the greens right. Always a fun play....from the correct tees......but I think it will be early Oct. before it's in prime condition.
Man size course
This course is not for the average golfer. Major trouble lurks on every hole except for a few. Even Par 5’s are difficult with hazards in play. Pretty stressful probably for anyone with a 10 HC or more. Long bunker shots the norm, if you go offline or short. Greens were not in good condition but the beauty of the course is from tee to green. Even good players will be challenged. Recommend playing a tee box up from what you’re used to, because there’s no roll right now. A lot of downhill lies on approach shots also make several tough holes even harder. I would play it again, simply because it’s really hard, and makes other courses look like a walk in the park.
Love Lonnie, Just Not It’s Best Day
Lonnie Poole is a great course, but today just wasn’t it’s best day. The pace of play was pretty slow (especially for a weekday), we dealt with course maintenance crews on multiple holes and the greens weren’t up to their traditional standard. That said, I’ll definitely go back, when I’ll be hoping Lonnie gets back to being the course I’ve known and love.
Great Course - Great price
This is a really great course - challenging. Great staff. Nice cart - GPS a bonus. Opportunity to challenge yourself. It would be great if courses like this can offer hot deals (cheaper rates <$30) more often so that we "poor" golfers get the opportunity to play on superb courses. It worked for me this time because Golf Now offered the $25 off next round. Promotions like that are great- Golf Now
Challenging but Fun and Fair
Bent greens had been verticut in past week. A little slow, inconsistent in speed. Rest of course in very good condition. Several collars around greens had been newly sodded. Love Lonnie but they really need to change to Bermuda greens.....the bent grass just doesn't tolerate NC summer heat. Probably won't play it again until mid-Sept when the nite temps drop.
Great course, but...
My son and I were excited to play this course together for the first time. As we were about to tee off, we were joined by another father (a member) and son... the son was 6. The young beginning “golfer” hit, or tried to hit, multiple tee shots on each hole and then whiffed, shanked and topped his way down the fairway. We endured this for 18 holes. It was not the experience we expected at a championship course with hefty green fees.
Best course in the Raleigh-Durham Area
Besides being one of the best courses in Central NC it also has tremendous views of the surrounding Raleigh area. Favorite course to play .
Great day of golf
Treated great. Conditions were very good. Couldn't have asked for anything better.
Hello Rick, thank you for the five stars! We are happy to hear that you found our course in great shape and had a positive experience with our staff. Thanks for stopping by, and we hope to see you again soon!
