Earlier this week, we posted links to a GoPack.com video tour of NC State’s new golf course and some great pictures from the course. Last night, WRAL posted this video of the course and an article in which they talked with head men’s golf coach Richard Sykes ’68 about what it will mean for the Wolfpack program.
“I know it’s going to help us in recruiting,” Sykes said. “It’s a wonderful place. And [Arnold] Palmer’s done a great job in designing it. ”
Sykes has been dreaming about this golf course for about as long as he can remember.
“N.C. State being a university that teaches people how to build golf courses,” Sykes noted, “I always hoped that we would have this one day.” But Sykes is quick to point out, “I wasn’t involved too much in the building of it – just the praying to get it built.”
