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.

Used to be a place we'd drive to and spend a weekend, play both courses. Not anymore. For $60+, and a university course with a turf management program, you'd think this place would be in tip top shape. Not any longer.
