Country Club (RCC) History:
1966 Louis Nazzaro, Nicholas T. Nerich, Jr. and Russell DeFranco
set out to create “a place of complete enjoyment, and relaxation
for you, and your children, and a place where you will be
proud to entertain your guests.” Their vision for a “little
club in the country” began to take shape in 1968 when they
purchased the site of the former Costello farm and created
the Redding Country Club Holding Corporation. Louis Nazzaro
became the first President of this new Club.

Country Club was formed, owned by the members. Nestled high

300 members and is a full service, family oriented, country

1973, Golf course architect, Ed Ryder designed a 9-hole course
for the Club. Work was completed and the course was opened
to members in 1974. Four years later in 1978, Golf course
Jones transformed the original 9 holes into a unique and
challenging 18-hole layout and among the finest in the Metropolitan
area. Jones took full advantage of the natural streams and
ponds, found on 12 holes, and incorporated the precipitous
changes in elevation to carve out a deceptively long short
course measuring only 6, 317 yards.
Tway, winner of the PGA championship in 1986, won the
Men’s Club Championship in 1973 at the age of 13.

style architecture with a distinctive façade and a wrap-around
