n Palmer in Raleigh
RALEIGH ó Arnold Palmer sent a wedge shot about 50 yards down the driving range Friday to open the golf course he designed at North Carolina State.
Palmer’s appearance marked the opening of the $12 million Lonnie Poole Golf Course, a par-71 layout on N.C. State’s campus that measures 7,358 yards.
“Only time will make it much, much better,” Palmer said. “With the maturity of the grasses and the things that are happening with the greens, I can’t tell you how good they are.”
The course offers views of Raleigh’s skyline and is the first built inside the city’s Interstate 440 beltline since 1948. It will be used by the school’s turfgrass program and the Wolfpack’s men’s and women’s golf teams. In two weeks, the course will play host to the V Foundation’s annual celebrity tournament.
