One of the best clubs in the district

What a course. I loved it. We played 2 rounds there at the start of May and the condition of the course was unbelievable. The greens needed to be just a touch quicker but that will come with the nice weather when they can cut them back. The greenkeepers should be proud of this course. Can't believe you can play it for ?20. First 4 holes are straight up and down near enough. After that though they start to get really interesting. The Par 3s are enjoyable and nothing over 180yds which is the way par 3s should be. The 18th iff the whites is 470yds and a proper challange to get there in 2. I never managed it. Always left myself with 210/220yds in and it's a tough shot to use a rescue and get it on the green as it protected left and right with bunkers and it's a small green with a massive hedge right behind it. Overall this is a brilliant track., very friendly staff and good food/drink. I wish I and played here earlier, I am moving away from the area in 4 weeks ????

Warm welcome on a hot day

This was a society event and we were welcomed with usual bacon bap and coffee and presented with a pitch mark repairer and ball marker...Thanks.
The course was in excellent condition with greens true and lightening fast. The club championship was on the next day, so the whole set up was 100%.

I've had the pleasure of playing as a visitor at Reading several times a year for quite a while now. The course currently is probably in the best condition I've seen, the greens are stunning. Always enjoy the mix of holes/layout, particularly from hole 5 onwards. A good all round test of your game, only suggestion would be more sand in some bunkers.
