Rating 69.9
Type Public
The Club at Shannondell, formerly known as George Washington Golf Course, has been ranked by Golf Digest as one of the "25 Best Golf Courses in Pennsylvania" and it's also on their list of "Best Places to Play." From the back tees, the course is just over 6,100 yards. Put away your driver because there won't be many chances to grip it and rip it on this course. It's a seemingly mild layout with wide, gently rolling fairways that appear forgiving, but the strategically placed hazards along the pitched greens demand well placed shots. The cut of the rough is also higher and there are several doglegs, placing even further emphasis on accuracy. Proper club selection is also very important on this golf course. The Club at Shannondell is a fun but fair test for players of all skill levels.

the course was not in good condition.

The course was wet so club personnel said carts were to be cartpath only for all 18 holes. The rough was wet and almost unplayable. The on course water coolers were for the most part empty.

Great day for golf

Got to the course about a half hour before my tee time. Went right out. First Nine no waiting at all. Back nine caught up to a three some. Some waiting but I was joined by Jerry who was walking and we moved along. A little over 4 hrs. for the round. Course was wet from last night’s rain (cart path only) but greens keepers did a great job especially the putting surfaces which were in very good condition. Can’t always hit driver especially from the gold tees but I do recommend.

Slow play

The course had booked some apparent novices and a fivesome and as a result the pace of play was very slow. I had to jump around a bit to avoid the jams. The wet weather helped because several groups quit. I felt that I could / should have been warned about what to expect.

Sunday Golf

While I expect play to be slow on a weekend I did not expect the rough to be the main cause. The rough was to high causing players to waste time searching for balls that were only feet off the fairway. Hitting out of the rough was very tough which lead to more slow play. On the plus side I felt the fairways and greens were in good condition. The staff was very professional and friendly. The brakes on the carts were very touchy. All in all I’ll go back.

First Time Playing
Expected more, just a regular municipal course. Most holes are next to one another, on one hole a twosome hit an errand tee shot and proceeded to play our hole. I’m a big driver guy and this course took that out of play for me. Fairways and greens are in very good shape, not a bad course all in all.

Lovely day Lovely partner

Arrived a little early. I was told someone would be playing with me and we could go off when ready. I met my playing partner and spent the next 4 hours enjoying a great round and great conversation. We followed a three some who moved along well. We played behind them even though they offered to let us play through. Some holes were aerated but rolled smooth. Hope to play with JP again.
