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.

Nice established course
Nice course with forgiving fairways and plenty of elevation changes. Some greens were distressed ( probably from flooding). Definitely would go back- good value
Great course for the$
Golfed here with both my sons. The course was in great shape, fairways and greens were well manicured an$ staff was very friendly. Pace of play was very good and course layout let us use every club in the bag. Will definitely come back!
It's a treat
I've been playing this course ever since it became public about 20 years ago. Always enjoy it. Not real long but good for me. Lots of hills and sloped fairways just to keep you honest. The greens, fairways and tee boxes were in above average condition. Try it you'll like it!
If you love hilly courses, have at it. Pace of play was was atrocious. Ruined the experience. Greens rolled nice, fairways were good. Tee boxes needed a trim.
Review, part 2
It was a hot day. 12:50 tee time . We saw the cart girl once . Saw places for water jugs around the course, all were empty. Finished under 4 hours with some waiting on the back 9, so no problem with pace. The issue was we couldn’t get a drink or snack for the road. Snack counter was closed before 5 on a Saturday. Will absolutely return
4 years later. Better then I remembered
Played here twice in a month 4 years ago and finally made the 75 minute trip to return. Fun, fun track!! Conditions were 90% tee to green. Bunkers were probably the best I’ve seen anywhere this year. ( I play once a week). Elevation changes all over the place. A creek winds thru 6-8 holes . Solid par 3s . Blind shots . Small FAST greens. I’ll be returning this year for sure!!!
Hot day to Play
Challenging Course. Some holes need improvement on the back nine. #10 is too close to a lot of errant driving range balls.. The only dog leg left needs better definition of fairway since there is a parking lot on the left and a large rocky outcrop blocking any views of the green on your 2nd shot in.
