Best course in Reading, PA
Pros: Never crowded
Descent variety of shots
Some holes are challenging/longer
3rd hole is there after being gone for a year so you have to play through twice to get 18 in
Has holes where water comes into play
Wooded and open holes
Cons: No tee pads
No signage (this is a problem that I assume will be taken care of in the future) so it is difficult to find your way around the first time playing but this course is not a destination course so people playing here will know where they are going the 2nd time out and everytime after that.
The first hole is right next to the road and then to get to the second hole you have to walk across the bridge to get to #2.
Other Thoughts: With some care this course would be a great 9 hole course.
In the future I hope they will add 9 holes out on the wetlands to make it 18 since there is lots of space available.
Overall it is a nice course for people who live in the area.

Pros: Nice variety of shots. Hyzer, Anhyzer and straight shots can be made on many of the holes. Good pin locations. Beautiful park.
Cons: Natural tees make good run ups challenging. Poor signage, very little information. Difficult to navigate. I had a hard time finding the second tee box, it's across the stream and up the road..
Other Thoughts: Excellent place for a new player to get started or for a more experienced player to work on their game.

Pros: easlyed played pro may get bored but the cource is beautiful from the varities of trees and wild flowers and the clean , clear creek i played it twice just to get 18 in and wasnt bord
Cons: only 9 holes.only #9 is a long one , its a new cource so they didnt poney up for the money the perminent ones but it was nice playing from a natural pad,just like we did back in 83 .the walk from 7 to 8 is a waist of space
Other Thoughts: #6 is the prettiest, with the creek on one side and an easy out to the left the senery is great and there potental for growth i live in the area,and would play here often and bring friends

Angelica: a "Rugrat" of a course!
Pros: 9 holes with all new DIScatcher baskets, very bright and easy to see from all the tees. Not hard to work your way around. A little elevation but no serious drops or hills. Several holes play around the Angelica Creek, a tributary of the nearby Schulykill. The creek is shallow enough to retrieve errant tosses without a major hassle on your hands. Lots of birdie chances with a long hole to round out your day, and the course doesn't play hand favorites. Quite wooded in some areas but there are no "pinball" type holes. The course is good for lesser experienced and smaller arms while not boring for the better players. One pro par 4.
Cons: For now, the tees are natural, and being in December here it'll probably be at least March, if not later, to see flypads or something a little better. Some holes had a light rock base. The signage can be improved just a bit but is better than most places. Holes 1, 8-9 will be the most prone to flooding in heavy rains.
Other Thoughts: For the first course in the Reading area, you can't really complain. Several holes stood out in my mind: How tight hole 4 will be in the midst of the summer season and seven with the choice for smaller arms of laying it up or going for it. Hole 6 reminds me a little bit of the old 4th at Unami Creek Park, where it plays over a majority of the creek with a creekside pin location. Nice job to Jon and Jeff on the first course in the immediate Reading vicinity!
