Lonnie Poole Golf Course

I’ve got something really exciting coming up: my birthday, a week from today! Part of my birthday this year, we agreed, will be us going to play a nice course that we’ve never played before, and he said I could pick, but if I couldn’t decide, he had a few courses in mind. I thought of a few courses that I’ve wanted to play for a while:

1) UNC Finley GC

2) Lonnie Poole GC

3) Olde Liberty GC

I did my homework on all three, and decided that option number two would be the best bet. So it’s settled, all we’ve gotta do is make the tee time. We’re either gonna play on the Sunday after my birthday (we’ve got plans that Saturday), or the weekend following that, two weeks away.

So my question to y’all is: have you ever played Lonnie Poole? If so, how was it?

You won't be disappointed. It's a gorgeous course, but you better make sure you're a good bunker player! Sand is everywhere. Pretty forgiving off the tee with wide fairways but sand traps strewn throughout nearly all of them. Out of all the courses I've played, this one probably takes the cake for being the best maintained. After all, they do have all of the college students majoring in golf course management taking care of it.

I’m alright out of fairway traps, but greenside bunkers give me fits. I could probably save two strokes on sand play alone, because I’m usually in at least one greenside bunker per round. Nonetheless, I’m really looking forward to playing the course! I’ve heard a lot of good things about it. I looked up the scorecard for the course, and there’s a tee box one up from the normal tips (two up from championship tees) that’s 6500 yards. I’m probably gonna play that.

    • Day 51 - Worked on some hip turn in the mirror. Need to film for Evolvr tomorrow, see how my setup looks. 
    • Made it through 16 holes today at +11 (73). Had 14 GIR/nGIR. I was about 30 yards from the green on a par-5 when I had to quit due to darkness. Just extrapolating my scoring, if I par #17 (considering I was close to GIR already), and bogey #18, that would be an 83, which is an excellent score for me on this course, from the tees I was playing. My ball striking was good all round, and I only had one horrendous mishit (topped a 3W off the tee on #2, ended up making a 6). The wind was strong and gusty so the ball was doing some weird stuff. On the first hole I flushed my drive, and it only got out 228 yards, then proceeded to hit my hybrid 260 yards just short of the green.  
    • Day 317 Played 16 holes today. Started pretty late in the afternoon, and was almost home on the par-5 17th hole when it was finally too dark to continue so I picked up and headed home. One of the best rounds in recent memory, and there was some pretty wild wind to contend with. Too tired for a superspeed workout so that will wait until tomorrow.
    • The only people that are allowed to whine about 3 putt pars are tour pros😉. Just kidding. Glad you got out for a round, and keep that driver in play and going LONG!!!
    • Day 126.  Speed sticks, protocol one at halftime of SNF.  It has been eleven days since I did this last;  that's way too long.
