Arnold Palmer sent a wedge shot about 50
yards down the driving range to open the golf course he designed at
North Carolina State.

Palmer appeared at a ceremony Friday marking 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.

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 golf

Chancellor Jim Woodward called the course "a tremendous asset
for N.C. State but maybe even more importantly, a tremendous asset
for this state and region."
