Chapel Hill Golf Course in Reading enjoys a scenic backdrop of mature forests. The tucked away locale provides a peacefully secluded setting that is ideal for a round of golf. While it may not seem like a long layout at just under 6,150 yards, you'll soon forget about any lack of length once you get on the golf course. From the very first hole you're confronted with a water hazard, a stream that weaves around five other holes. The layout forces you to think through each hole, making the tough decision between going for it or laying up. Accurate shot placement is crucial throughout the golf course, especially on the back nine where there are several tricky doglegs and tough uneven lies. Mature trees tightly line the fairways at Chapel Hill Golf Course, and the greens are framed with strategically placed bunkers.

Go to place

I live close to the golf course and generally decide to play at the spur of the moment. Chapel Hill is good for this as during the week getting on is usually no problem. There is a good mix of holes. Some with tight fairways and others wide open. With the amount of woods and water it is easy to lose balls which makes club and shot selection important. The fairways and greens are in good shape most of the time. Some of the cart paths could use some work but the gold is good

Eh

Frost delay could have been alleviated by starting some off back nine. Horrible cart paths. Oil leak on some greens on back nine. Much better local courses for the price.

Nice course, but too slow of play

The course was nice for this time of year, and the greens were some of the best in the county. We had a lot of fun playing this course, a good mix of challenging holes but also wide open ones you can drive on. For reference I usually play RCC, Flying Hills, Willow Hollow, Club at Shannondell as most frequent courses.

While the course quality was pretty mediocre overall the greens were great. I probably won’t go back on a weekend ever though, it took over 5 hours to play a round of 18. It truly did become painful, we even paired with the two gentlemen behind us and at one point had two more pairs and us all at a tee box waiting to go. Need to spread out the tee times more, luckily we had a beautiful day to be outside.

Horrible Golf Course

This golf course is horrendous. Fairways are garbage. The entire course is rough. Tee boxes are all dead. Cart paths are destroyed. No type of organization when it comes to grouping. Nobody controlling pace I’d play. Cart seats are all ripped and destroyed. Greens are extremely fast.

They honestly have nerve charging 45 dollars to play here. Worst golf course I have ever played. Don’t play here. Go play virtual golf before you decide to play here.

Horrible

The course is in horrible shape. I will not play again. Crabgrass everywhere. Hard to tell what is fairway and what is rough. Greens were only thing decent about the course. Some fairways you have to search for grass.
