Item Description

Round of Golf for Four at Reading Country Club at 5311 Perkiomen Road in Reading, Pennsylvania.

From Lord Byron to Slamming Sammy, From hickory to graphite
Reading Country Club, located just east of the city of Reading in Berks County, Pa., is a pristine example of golf course architecture from the games ?golden years.? Designed by Alexander Findlay, a Scotsman known as ?The Father of American Golf?, the RCC layout remains a true shot-makers course that has challenged golfers from the era of hickory shafted niblicks to today?s titanium and graphite technological wonders. That the course record 63, shot by hall-of-fame golfer Sam Snead, has stood since 1949 is a testament to a venerable golf course that has resisted par for nearly 100 years.
 
          The club was chartered in Berks County, Pennsylvania, on June 6, 1922, as a not-for-profit corporation. The club purchased 237 acres of land, consisting of two farms and four additional tracts in Exeter Township. The golf course, consisting of nine holes, opened in 1923. A second nine, designed by Alex and his brother Fred, who established a flourishing course design business of his own, opened for play in 1925. The present clubhouse was completed in 1931.
