As a Penn State alum, I always thought it a treat to return to Happy Valley anytime - and especially to play golf which I hadn't done there in several years. I took a group of guys from our private club about 80 miles from State College - and frankly was embarrassed at the condition of the Blue Course. I... More

Penn State has obviously been experiencing a drought but regardless of this their White Golf Course is in terrible condition. You can even put your tee into the ground without significant efforts. We recommend avoiding this course until conditions have been improved!

We had a small group that played the White Course. The staff was very accommodating for our small group and the course was in excellent condition! Great time!!

It's was a great day! The sun was shining and the course was in great condition. It was not during school season and it was a Saturday and it was easy going. I played the white today and it was worth the day out with some friends.

The White Course was quite disappointing. The rates are a bit high for what it offers. Not sure I'd play there again. Maybe the Blue Course is better, I would hope.

Always a wonderful round playing on either course in State College. Great condition, friendly atmosphere and nice views. Could not be better. Greens are always in fantastic shape.

The courses experienced over 18 inches of rain and then 17 days of drought. The course was in great shape for what they had experienced over the last 2 months. Great greens and fairways. The blue course is my favorite but the white course is just as good. Reasonable prices and good conditions. That is hard to beat!

Had no tee time and Blue Course was closing at 1:45 for an event. They let me on at 1:25 and allowed me to walk. Nice course to walk. Greens were not overly fast, but were not slow. Need more yardage markers on par 5's for lay-ups. Par 3's were very challenging, but all but 1 were same yardages/same club.... More

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.
