Great University Course

For Students this course is tough to beat. Not expensive, great membership deals, definitely worth it. Also the Willie Park Jr. designed holes are pretty cool considering he designed courses like Sunningdale. Definitely a fun round, but don't expect an incredible course if you're used to immaculate conditions. If you're an alum or a good golfer in State College this probably isn't the course for you.

Average course

Super pro shop with a lot of merchandise. This course is average with a high price. I would only play here using a Golf Now discount. The greens were in excellent shape and they have nice clean quality carts. This course is very walkable.

Penn State Blue course is one of the finest in the State College.

The Blue Course at Penn State University is one of the best tracks in the area. The course is well maintained, and is reasonably priced. The internet special allows folks to play the Blue Course Mon - Thurs (after 11 AM) for $35. Considering that Mountain View is asking $49..this is a really bargain. The course is challenging from the White Tees, difficult from the Blue Tees, and I suspect the pros would have all they can handle from the Black Tees. This is a course you want to play!!
