Blue course - great course to play and very picturesque. But had a hard time figuring out where to go - lacking cart paths in many places especially towards the green. Would definitely play here again.

I've seen many golfers having a great time there. Summertime is perfect for spending some peaceful time there.

The Blue course is awesome. My daughter played in a USGA qualifier tournament at the Blue course. The grounds were in great condition.

Played the white course during the summer. The conditions were a little rough on the course, but it was pretty reasonable for the cost. It would be much better if the driving range permitted regular folks to use the grass tees as opposed to the mats, but the practice putting green is nice (it has some contour, which is not... More

Our son played the Blue course in a junior tournament here. The course is beautiful and open. The fairways are wide and there are not too many trees. The course is in great shape. There is a Turf Management degree at Penn State so the condition of their courses is a matter of importance. There is also a White course... More

Blue Course is quite good; White a little less so. Courses are always in excellent condition. Can be painfully slow on heavy-play days. A big drawback: grass practice tees are almost never open and the mats are impossible to use a tee on.

The course is very well kept, but with the last expansion to meet NCAA expectations, it has become longer and less forgiving. Somehow I mind it less hitting a ball into the water at some other courses than making a good shot over a sand trap only to find my ball invisible in a thick, unmowed section of grass hidden...

I will avoid the White course from now on as it is a poor layout, unimaginative and the skill level seems to be more oriented towards women golfers. The play was sooooo slow - I mean it was ridiculous with some of the kids they let on as they couldn't hit a thing and held up play reducing the enjoyment.... More

Despite visiting Penn State many times, I had never played at the golf courses before. Got a tee time for the White course during a recent visit, only to be "upgraded" to the Blue course by the starter due to it being backed up on the white course upon my arrival. While I didn't necessarily play my best golf, the... More

The staff was friendly and helpful. The course was fun and in great shape. Watch out for the rough, it's deep!
