Improve Your Game

The Lonnie Poole Golf Course has gained a reputation for its player development services, which is not surprising since it’s a training ground for future PGA professionals. The player development suite, located on the first floor of the clubhouse, enables players to improve their swing indoors. It is a one-stop shop for tour-level custom fitting, club repair, and alterations.

Own Your Golf Game (OYGG) partnership
We’ve teamed up with this innovative new online platform for golf instruction offer the next level of golf instruction. OYGG was developed by our own Chase Duncan, lead golf instructor and NC State men’s golf alumnus who has helped players of all levels and ages to vastly improve their game. In addition to the video at the link below, LPGC family members can get a free swing analysis with OYGG membership by entering the code LPGC at checkout. We hope that you find this partnership beneficial and encourage you to supplement online learning by contacting our professional staff for in-person golf lessons.

Our Team

Daniel Spurling, player development coordinator, is an expert PGA professional and master fitter with Golfsmith International. He is also a certified fitter with Mizuno, Taylormade, Callaway, Ping and other prominent brands. It is under Daniel’s leadership that we have been named among the top 50 Club Fitters in North America by Golf Magazine.

Daniel and other Lonnie Poole staff members – Chase Duncan, Nick Dillman, and Scott Clagg – can use Fore Sight technology to examine your swing to help you improve your game. Trackman is considered the best and most accurate golf swing analysis tool and is widely used by professionals on the PGA tour as well as the NC State Men’s and Women’s teams. It is not commonly found at public facilities such as the Lonnie Poole Golf Course, which also offers the service both in the player development suite and on the driving range.

The staff offers a variety of group lessons and outings, including Golf and Grape for women and a nine-hole league on Friday afternoons. They are regularly adding new opportunities.
