It represents the evolution in golf course architecture towards sustainability; a golf course that fits into and protects the natural environment. Lonnie Poole leans heavily on traditional Scottish designs while accommodating the natural landscape. The course is dictated by large elevation changes and provides protected habitats for wildlife and native plant species. The course has well known turfgrass species as its heart including bermudagrass, bentgrass, and zoysiagrass. The rough areas establish a color contrast with the turfgrasses on the fairways and tees. The bunkers have irregular shapes and jagged edges providing the most modern design feel. The Lonnie Poole Golf Course at NC State University is designed and built to be a championship golf course.
