Elegant Country Club Wedding Venue at The Lonnie Poole Golf Course

A 1969 graduate of NC State, Lonnie C. Poole, Jr. has served as director of the NC State University Foundation and the Endowment Board. He provided the facility with a naming gift in 2007 with his wife Carol Lynn Poole. The golf course, clubhouse and practice facilities were all built solely on private donations from many generous donors from the NC State community like the Pooles.

The amenities and resources at the course will exceed anything you could imagine. The clubhouse offers an indoor dining room, outdoor firepit and covered patio space, complete with spectacular views of the Raleigh skyline. They offer Rave! as their exclusive caterer, showcasing a delicious menu of everything from Baked Brie en Croûte with Raspberry Sauce to a Mac N’ Cheese bar.

They are the only collegiate golf course in the world designed by the legendary Arnold Palmer, and was voted best golf course in the Triangle by WRAL’s Voter’s Choice in 2018. With an intimate location and first-class service, the Carol Johnson Poole Clubhouse is a wonderful choice for smaller gatherings. Paired with the adjacent Park Alumni Center and StateView Hotel, you can have a weekend full of wedding bliss!
