A Mix of Classic Designs and Wide Open Links
You’ll want to try out our 10th Golf Trail addition, the brand new West Chester-Reading Golf Trail. This vertical trail, which utilizes many of the north-south travel routes, is a great high-end fit for golfers. Most of the traditional layouts you will find were once private clubs, now public with elaborate clubhouses. A few are newer designs cut out of the lush surrounding Amish country. The longer tracks are distinctly different from each other winning various golf accolades upon opening or within the last decade. All combined, it’s a great mix sure to satisfy anyone in your group.
Built in 1922, Reading Country Club was once home to the legendary Byron Nelson, hired to be the club’s head pro shortly after winning the Master’s in 1937. Just 20 miles away from Reading is a private “mystery club” available for golfers as well, with a more wide open feel and great clubhouse views. Just off exit 298 from the PA Turnpike is Honeybrook Golf Club. It offers challenging bent grass fairways and greens, in a wide open links style design that sits among some real Amish farms.
On the southern stretch of this Golf Trail is Downingtown Country Club, designed by George Fazio, uncle to legendary golf course designer Tom Fazio. Next, is a private “mystery club,” for a classic day of golf where placement is paramount. As you travel east along Rt. 30 you’ll find the very fun Broad Run Golfer’s Club, with changing terrain and scenic views. In fact, it was just voted as “Best 2013 Pennsylvania Golf Course,” by the Pennsylvania Golf Owners Association. Further south is Inniscrone Golf Club, designed by local Philadelphian Gil Hanse who is now doing designs nationally. Once named as a top 100 places to play, it’s under new management and has been returned to its former glory. Just 15 minutes away is Wyncote Golf Club, sitting atop one of the trail’s highest plateaus. This is no ordinary links style course, further challenged by long fescue grass and daily changing winds. You’ll want to also hang for its 19th holes in its clubhouse, huge deck, or underneath patio with weekend nightlife.
The hotel options are scattered in three different locations along the Golf Trail, and all very high-end. On the north end in Reading is the Crowne Plaza, offering every amenity a group would need for the perfect social gathering – indoor/outdoor pool, an outside protected patio and garden, a full restaurant and a hopping lounge. In the middle is the Holiday Inn Morgantown, which recently went through a full renovation with gorgeous designs throughout this full service hotel. Further south along the Golf Trail is the Courtyard by Marriott Coatesville, a brand new hotel featuring an onsite Bistro which offers limited food, morning Starbucks, evening beer and wine and more.
