Always a good day at Penn State Golf Course

Penn State is one of my favorite golf destinations. I enjoy both courses but particularly like the White course because, while challenging, it produces lower scores. I've made the journey to PS for the last four years and have always found the courses in wonderful condition. Nice full fairways and well manicured greens. Spring and summer weather at Happy Valley is unbeatable. The well stocked pro shop has everything a player would want and the staff is friendly and helpful. Synthetic turf tee boxes on the range do not present a problem for a pre-round warm up - great short game area for putting and bunker practice. Check their web site for discount coupons to save on greens fees. I look forward to my next round at PS.

More challenging than given credit for

Left and right will usually leave a second shot, but there is tree and sand trouble all over the place on this course, and deceivingly difficult greens. Pace of play can be frustratingly slow at times, but with a little luck, playing through isn't much of a problem. A little stronger ranger presence wouldn't be a bad thing. Overall, a great value.
