Thanks to a $3 million gift from Lonnie C. Poole and his wife Carol Lynn Poole, construction on the Lonnie Poole Golf Course began in the summer of 2007, and play began in the summer of 2009. The two-story golf clubhouse includes dinging and food prep facilities, locker rooms, a golf pro shop and cart storage. The 18-hole tract features great variety, with low-lying areas as well as fairways with rolling hills. It also features beautiful green sites as well as tee boxes. Several areas of the course will provide views of downtown Raleigh as well as the NC State campus. Funds were raised for a $11.6 million dollar Arnold Palmer Signature multipurpose golf course that would also include a research center and clubhouse. It would not only aid the golf teams, but would also support critical academic programs, including the Professional Golf Management (PGM) and turfgrass programs.
