Reading Country Club
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.

Golf Advisor: Top Courses in Pennsylvania
club house and entrance was beautiful
Course was in good shape fairways were a little patchy course plays a lot longer than you think a lot of up and down not much run beautiful old course.
greens were slow due to being punched 2 weeks ago......course in Ok shape due to weather......18 holes and just could not adjust......I must be getting old.....other wise a great day on a nice course......if you play pick the right tees cause it plays much longer then the score card yardage
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
nice day nice course
nice day on a nice course...........many players but pace of play was 3 1/2 hours.........greens a little hairy so not alot of brakes....rough is thick as always so hit the fairways.........nice course for a fun round........do not let the yardage fool you.....pick the right tees....ego aside do not play the blues unless you are a single digit
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.
I have been playing this course for over 20 years......it is always enjoyable and challenging........good tract for beginner or well healed........the greens make the course and remember stay out of the rough, it will cost you a stroke
traps vastly improved from spring. Greens fairways very nice.
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.
Great course and value
Very cool old school layout. You must think your way around
Course conditions were great. Fast greens and lush fairways. Decent challenge and great sandtrap conditions. Very mindful of Covid sanitation throughout the course.
