Moselem Springs Golf Club in Fleetwood, PA has been recognized as one of America's greatest golf courses. Set in the lush, rolling hills of Berks County, it is truly a spectacular "golfing enclave of great natural beauty and a course of unusual charm and excellence", to quote its founder, Hawley Quier.
For 50 years, this pristine, George Fazio designed course has lured the finest golfers in the State and beyond, as well as been a venue for teaching and nurturing those new to the game. It is also the perfect locale for building and networking corporate relationships. As a golf-only club, with a highly acclaimed restaurant, the focus is always on a sublime experience...
Moselem Springs Golf Club is a 6808 yard, par 70 course from the championship tees. The six different sets of tees offer a playable and enjoyable course to all levels of golfers, including juniors and beginners. The course is widely considered as one of the most challenging, scenic, and historical courses in Pennsylvania – hosting the 1968 United States Women's Open Championship, 1996 and 2011 Pennsylvania Open's and home to the prestigious annual Hawley Quier Memorial.
Hawley Quier, former publisher of the Reading Eagle newspaper in Reading, PA, had avocations of golf and fishing. He came from a golfing family. Every member has long been identified with the game in the Eastern Pennsylvania area. Let him relate how the Moselem Springs Golf Club came into being:
"Some years ago on what must have been the hottest day of that summer I sought relief for mind and spirit in the spring-fed pond on what was termed the 'family farm' at Moselem Springs. Moments later, raising my head from the surface of the water, I recall, vividly looking over the terrain and saying to myself, 'What a wonderful natural setting for a golf course!'
"The 'family farm' is now a memory and a golf course has been designed and constructed by George Fazio which has surpassed by far the scope of my 'dream' and also some preliminary plans which were drafted by other capable golf architects."
We of the Moselem Springs Golf Club have another dream - that our friends of today and others who we trust will be our friends of tomorrow may derive pleasure from a golfing enclave of great natural beauty and a course of unusual charm and excellence.
Moselem Springs Golf Club opened in 1964 and was host to the Women's Open Championship of the USGA in 1968 and is proud to be listed as one of the top courses in the nation.
