About Oakmont Country Club:

Few venues in the world of golf have the championship tradition of Oakmont. Introduced in 1903 by designer Henry Fownes, Oakmont Country Club has hosted more combined USGA and PGA championships than any other course in the U.S., including nine United States Opens, five U.S. Amateurs, three PGA Championships, and two U.S. Women's Opens.

Oakmont remains perhaps the most difficult course in North America, with 175 deep bunkers (personified by the Church Pews), hard and slick greens that slope away from the player, and tight fairways requiring the utmost precision. Oakmont was the site of "the greatest round of the 20th century": Johnny Miller's final round 63 at the 1973 U.S. Open. Golf Digest ranks Oakmont #5 in its most recent version of America's Top 100 courses.

About LedgeRock Golf Club:

LedgeRock Golf Club was conceived by its Founders at the turn of the 21st century to create the premier contemporary golf experience in Berks County. Indeed, it is a hidden gem among the many fine courses in southeastern Pennsylvania.

The Founders recognized that the finest golfing venues available to local golfers nearby required many to drive 30-45 minutes, whereas the location of LedgeRock would enable many to arrive at this Club in less than 15 minutes.

To implement their vision, the Founders acquired 212 contiguous acres of woodlands, farm land and former nurseries on beautiful rolling terrain, adjacent to a number of small, attractive residential developments southwest of Reading. Designed by Rees Jones, esteemed for his role as the "Open Doctor," LedgeRock is challenging but fair, based on Rees Jones' design principles, permitting the golfer to see the challenge ahead, to take dead aim at a reasonable tee shot target, and to select from more than one strategy to succeed in many cases.

LedgeRock's golf course opened in 2006. Since 2011, all of the elements of a first class golf club have been in place. We look forward to welcoming new members and guests.
