Detailed description
Penn State Golf Courses is a Public, 36 hole golf facility located in State College, Pennsylvania. The facility has two 19-hole golf courses. They are the White Course and the Blue Course. An additional 6-hole practice course, The Nitty Course, at The Penn State Golf Courses facility was open from 1994 to 2002.

The White Course at Penn State Golf Courses opened in 1921. Professors, Bob Rutherford and R.D. Pryde, laid out nine holes on the west end of campus. Nine additional holes were laid out in 1922 by Willie Park, Jr., with the work being completed in 1926. While keeping the general layout of the initial nine holes, Park significantly altered the greens and bunkers to match his own style of design.

The Blue Course at Penn State Golf Courses opened in 1965. The course was designed by James Harrison and Ferdinand Garbin.

Both courses were rerouted and rennovated in 1993 by Ault, Clark & Associates including the addition of 6 new holes. The work yielded an excess 6-hole combination of 3 holes from both the Blue Course and the Red Course that became a 6-hole practice course named the Nitty Course. The Nitty Course closed in 2002.
