Support our Course

In 2009, NC State celebrated the completion of the Lonnie Poole Golf Course, a premier collegiate research and training facility and championship public course. Since then, we’ve added a clubhouse with additional player development training facilities, golf shop, dining, classrooms, and other amenities. 

Our operations are expected to be self-sustaining through generated revenues and additional donations. These sources have provided new practice tee mats, bunker renovations, on-course restrooms, and most recently, a fully landscaped overflow parking lot. Facility needs, however, will continue to grow.
