About LedgeRock Golf Club
LedgeRock provides a sanctuary for golfers of all ages and abilities to pursue the game, while receiving the highest level of personal service and enjoying opportunities for social interaction in an atmosphere that is refined, yet casual, and inviting. Opening in 2006, LedgeRock Golf Club was conceived by its Founders to create the premier contemporary private golf experience in Berks County. Indeed, it is a hidden gem among the many fine courses in southeastern Pennsylvania.
To implement their vision, the Founders acquired 212 contiguous acres of woodlands, farmland 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.
