Great views. Great conditions.

This course is nestled in between some hills and has some great views. Some challenging hills and a slightly confusing layout but overall this is the best course for the money in the area.

Beautiful course

I've played this course 4 times now over the past 2 years and it is always in great shape. It is very challenging with a variety of terrain and hazards. I highly recommend if you haven't experienced it.

Public Golf...Country Club Course

Recently voted the #1 Public Course in PA. The course was in great condition as usual...previous county club course. I've played when the greens were faster, but they were still rolling true. Great layout that will definitely challenge any avid golfer. Pace was a little slow for a Tuesday as I played behind a two-some, who was behind a two-some that was behind a single. Ha, just wouldn't let me play through. I blame the golf etiquette though, not the course...plus, it was a beautiful day and being on the course beat sitting in the office. If you're in the Penn State area, this is a course worth checking out! WE ARE...!

Great course

The course was a little soggy from the recent rains but the fairways and greens were excellent. Always love playing this course even though I almost always loose a ball on hole # 3
