  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) May 06, 2015 - The Triangle Golf Challenge benefits local Triangle charities and will be contested on Friday, June 12, 2015 at the Lonnie Poole Golf Course at NC State University in Raleigh, NC. Amateur golfers of all skill levels are invited to compete in a two-person scramble format.

    The event will begin 8:30 am with a shot-gun start. Guests of the event will have the chance to mix and mingle with celebrity hosts Chris Corchiani, Walter Davis and Levelle Moton. The Lonnie Poole Golf Course was designed by Arnold Palmer and the design team at Arnold Palmer Design Company, and includes stunning views of downtown Raleigh. The course is very playable for all skill levels and a large challenge to low handicap players.
