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.

rough due to weargwe

it is always a joy to play this course cause you never know what you are going to get.......the greens were punched last week and some of the course was flooded but all in all a nice round........the course is short on the score card but plays alot longer and due to the weather even longer due to no roll.......it is a challenge when the course is perfect even more so when it is not........you need your best game every time you play but it is always fun

Out of towner.

I love playing this course whenever I can pass through Reading Pennsylvania. It is a fantastic short course layout. They have recently gone through some hard times with flooding wind storms trees down but all in all it is and quite playable condition. I would recommend this course to anybody in the area it is a joy to play.

First time at RCC

Played on a Sunday late morning. Having read some of the previous reviews, I was excited about getting out there and seeing and playing the course. The best part of the course is the conditions of the greens. Without question. Tee boxes could use some work,.
Bunkers were everything from awful to pristine and everything in between. Hilly layout with mature trees lining most fairways. You could see how in its day, the course was highly regarded regionally. We played as a two-some and made good time until about the 8th hole. From there on, we were waiting on every hole and groups behind us were queued up. 5 hour round. Shot my first 82 at RCC and its a testament to condition and quality of the greens.
