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.
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.
Daniel and other Lonnie Poole staff members – Chase Duncan, Nick Dillman, and Scott Clagg – can use Trackman 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 Mens’ and Womens’ 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.
