Rating 70.2

Opened in 1923, Reading Country Club is one of the area's oldest golf courses. Located less than a half hour from King of Prussia, the course is easily accessible from anywhere in the greater Berks County area. Though it has a traditional layout that doesn't have the length that most modern courses do, that hasn't stopped it from being one of the most challenging public golf courses in Berks County. The rolling terrain provides a variety of elevation changes that range from subtle to dramatic. The course will test you with lightning fast, undulating greens that are protected by sand traps and there is punishing rough bordering the narrow, tree-lined fairways. Be prepared for uphill shots and blind approaches throughout the golf course. Reading Country Club's par 3s are especially notable for their difficulty.

Worth way more than I paid.

STAFF: incredible. Guy greeted me and loaded my bag onto a cart and washed my club heads. When I came out to tip him he was gone.. Guy working pro shop was VERY accommodating. I was an hour early for my tee time and all he asked for was my name and I was off and playing. Guys mowing and blowing leaves were VERY polite.

COURSE: while nothing to go crazy over, it is a very nice and well kept track. Greens were fast and fair. Fairly short course. Houses only came into play on 2 holes. A few rough spots on a few greens, but overall a wonderful layout.

PACE: I was by myself on a cart. I needed to play through 3 groups and they were all VERY polite and accommodating. Finished in 2 hours and 15 minutes without rushing.

COST: I paid $12 on GolfNow. It took me an hour to get there and about 80 miles of round trip driving----------and well worth it. Will definitely return.

Hit them Straight!

This time of year is always tough; the errand shot gets lost in the leaves. Course does a pretty good job clearing leaves, but they will be falling for some time. Greens are in excellent shape and fast!

Great layout - well groomed.

Played today with my wife and another couple friend of ours from NC. The great feature of this course is the tee locations for women. It makes the round competitive for us all and adds to the fun of the day. Our second time at RCC and the staff was again very courteous and accommodating. A fun day!

This course used to be one of the best in the area

Wow, this course used to be one of the best in the area and one of my personal favorites! It was a privilege to play not more than 2 years ago and now is in terrible shape. Fairways are very high and patchy, greens are much slower and have rough patches, and the tees are subpar at best. I'm so disappointed and don't think I will be coming back until I know if the conditions are much better!

Very challenging

This was my first time and I had a tough time with ball placement. There are also a couple of blind tee shots which makes it tough to find your ball if you are not in the fairway. There are also not too many flat lies which can add to the challenge. Overall I totally enjoyed it and plan on playing there again.
