Had the pleasure of playing 36 this past Saturday in the Reading area. Had played Galen few weeks back, wanted to try a couple Findlay designs in the area too. My son and I headed out around 7am and drove from Philly to Manor Golf Club. Quirky course, short, but still challenging. Smallest greens I’ve ever seen (one par 3 was about the size of two cars parked side by side). There were some blind shots because of the elevation changes, the greens were pristine, but the fairways were muni-quality. It was a fun round, and while I was spraying it all over the place, I still managed an 80 thanks to some good chipping and putting (30 putts). 
 

One of the many tiny greens.

My 9 year old son and I. He had a blast putting, driving the cart. Didn’t hit many shots as it was pretty packed.

Next we headed to some lunch and then over for an afternoon tee time at Reading Country Club (maybe a 20 minute drive from Manor). 
 

Very different feel here. This was built and maintained as a true country club for many decades. Sam Snead holds the course record of 63, and Byron Nelson was the head pro for a few years during his prime in the mid 30’s. 
 

I again sprayed it all over, scavenged an 84 and I felt pretty good about it. After all I’ve only been out half dozen times or so this year. 
 

Clubhouse and restaurant

View back from the #1 green back towards the clubhouse.

I would play Reading every day of the week. It had a good mix of elevation, distance, and you could tell that the grounds crew had really taken advantage of the down month of COVID to do a ton of maintenance. 
 

HIGHLY recommend making the trip. A Reading + Galen double is the way to go and you won’t be disappointed. 

Have you played Broad Run over in West Chester?  Just played there a few weeks ago and it was such a fun course!

Yes, but it was a number of years ago when it was called something else. Lol. I live in the city so it also takes forever to get out there. Ha.

Ok, sounding good so far for possibly the July 11/12 weekend.   Good news yesterday as Maryland officially but very quietly lifted the 10 person max limit on any gatherings.  So we should be able to have the group gather for some food and drink afterwards.   

I would think a tee time around 11:00 would allow those such as Cnosil and others coming from a distance not have to get up at dawn. 

 

Just wanted to do a followup and see if we are going to formalize this outing.....   I am actually looking forward to heading up north and meeting/seeing some other Spies!

Yep was thinking over the weekend.  I need to start putting it in place.   As of now unless anyone has an objection.  I'll plan on hosting it at Compas Pointe.
We are having a Cleveland Wedgeucatuon day that day.  
 

It's a paid signup small group type thing.  But I might be able to snag one of the new wedges for anyone that wants to try them. 
 

I'm thinking right now around an 11:00 tee time.

Ok, sorry for the lack of promoting this guys, but let me see if we can nail down some interest.  Since time is of essence, I'll go ahead and host.  The following info.

 

When: July 11th

Where:  Compass Pointe Golf Course-Pasadena, MD between Baltimore and Annapolis 

What Time: 11:00 and 11:09 tee times--if we need more, I can do that, but lets start with seeing if we can get 8.

How Much:  Normal green Fees are $71 on Weekends, I am offering a MGS rate of $50....I know a guy 🙂

Who: Anybody that enjoys playing golf, all handicap levels welcome form scratch to 36+--I mean that in all sincerity.

How: It will be mostly friendly, but I will come up with a few surprises for the day.

So let me know if you're in.  If you're a maybe, give me your best guess are you closer to 80% in or 20% in.  I put that there for @MDGolfHacker  He loves replying in percentages 🙂

 

Fire away with any questions/comments or concerns!

Ok, just trying to nail down if we have enough on Saturday to make this worth while.    

Thanks, Cnosil, Shankster and PAGolfer for your replies.

@tchat07 @JimNantzsToast @Rylongshot89 @analyticandrew @tommc23  You all indicated earlier the date worked for you , or at least a strong maybe.   What's it look like for you guys.  If you need any more info on the course or location, feel free to ask or PM me.
