Proper Attire: We promote a quality golf experience for everyone: proper attire is required for use of the golf facilities, including the practice facility and the chipping and putting greens. Collared shirts are preferred, but nice T-shirts are accepted. Inappropriate attire includes cut-off jeans, bathing attire, tanks or halter tops, or mesh shirts. Slacks or mid-thigh length shorts are acceptable for men and women. The Penn State Golf Courses reserves the right to deny access to the facilities to anyone dressed inappropriately. Please note that the Penn State Golf Courses require the use of non-penetrating toed alternative spikes. The use of metal spikes is not permitted.

Pace of Play: It is our goal to have all guests complete their round in less than four hours and thirty minutes. Our course advisors are available to assist you in meeting this goal. Please respect the game and honor your fellow players by maintaining a proper pace of play.

Alcohol Policy: We now have an alcohol license with the state of Pennsylvania and so beer and wine can be purchased from our 19th hole concession or on course F&B Cart. Outside alcohol or personal coolers are NOT allowed on the Penn State Golf Courses Property.

Practice Facilities: With 36 mats to hit from, as well as grass, there is plenty of room to practice your swing or warm-up before your round. Take aim at the flags or Sonic golf targets. These targets are large metal targets which, when hit, create a loud noise… a sonic boom! Practice your short-game on one of our four practice greens.
Purchasing options: $8 – Large, $5 – Small
