For some, there is nothing as enjoyable as the simple luxury of spending a day on the golf course. When you’re in Greater Raleigh and far from your home course, you’ll find plenty of public and semi-private courses that can accommodate you. After all, why spend the beautiful fall days of Greater Raleigh indoors?

If your skills make you the next Tiger Woods, you’ll enjoy the new, rigorous Lonnie Poole Golf Course at N.C. State University. This course provides one of the toughest challenges in the Triangle, playing 6,901 yards back from the black tee. If you’re not a total pro, the shorter tee sets allow anyone to enjoy the course. Beginners also will especially enjoy the nine-hole course at 401 Par Golf.

If you’re near Wake Forest, you’ll enjoy the nearby Brevofield Golf Links, Heritage Golf Club, or Paschal Golf Club. Garner is home to Pine Hollow Golf Club and Saint Augustine’s College Golf Course at Meadowbrook. And, of course, Raleigh itself is home to nearly a dozen beautiful courses that you can choose from.
