Two public courses, Hickory Heights Golf Club, Bridgeville, and Penn State University Golf Courses, State College, have been accepted into Association membership.
Hickory Heights, founded in 1992, was recently purchased by long time South Hills CC professional, Sam Depe, III, who has left South Hills, and will be the General Manager at Hickory Heights.
The Penn State Courses, Blue and White, are among the busiest public facilities in the state. The Blue Course is home to the Nittany Lions golf team, and will host the 2009 Big Ten Championships.
