Rating 71.8
Type Resort
There are three nines at Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort: the Red, the White, and the Blue. For practice, there is also a nine-hole par-3 course. 24 of the 27 championship holes share a unique location on an island in the middle of the Delaware River. Long ago, the odd little island was formed when one of the last glaciers melted. The holes are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The White/Blue Course features well manicured fairways and gently undulating greens. There are strategically placed bunkers along the greensides as well as thick patches of rough. On almost every hole, golfers can enjoy stunning views of the nearby Poconos Mountains. The beautiful setting and interesting design of all the golf courses have made Shawnee one of the Pennsylvania's finest destinations.

Red/White

Very enjoyable round. Some great green complexes that were fun to putt. Conditions were good throughout. And $39 for weekday seniors, can't beat that.

Nice course

Played on 4/8/18.Day was freezing. Played solo for both nines.played the white first behind a twosome and a foursome that played way to slow,over 2 and a half hours for nine holes.I went to the starter Mark and told him and he was really cool about it and I played my second nine on the Red and flew through the back nine in little over an hour! Can't say enough how nice that was of him. It's early in the season so the course was in ok condition but I'd like to get back in the summer or fall as it seems when it grows in it should be a real fun place to play!

Scenic average course

Played at 8am weekend morning zoomed through 9 holes 1 half hour and hit a back up on the back. Ended up being 4 hour round. Greens were above average condition fairways and tee boxes below average. Scenic at times where holes were close to the river other holes nothing special. Fairly wide open course with a few tight wooded holes mixes in. Staff was friendly enough. I would playy again

Golfing Along the Delaware River

Shawnee Inn is a magnificently understated venue, home to NYC starlets in the Jackie Gleason era, who sought respite from the streets of Wall, and Lexington. I met Jeremy Wo and immediately got on the Golf Course after a long day of driving into the City, and then back home to Duncansville, PA. I found the course in immaculate condition, the greens rolling nicely. One overt missing item... is yardage markers. Overall the Course is beautifully and majestically nestled among the Delaware River Valley.

Fun all around track with great layout

Tilly's first design! Always nice to come out to this nostalgic golf resort. I myself is a big fan of traditional hotels and golf course design. Love the picutures of past celebrities like Bob Hope, Jackie Gleason and of course Arnold Palmer. If you're a person who insists on staying at a resort with boujee amenities, this place isn't for you. Despite being a Tillinghast design, it's fun for all levels of play. It's his first design course which opened in 1911 so don't expect it to be as challenging as Winged Foot, Baltusrol, or Bethpage black. With the price of stay and play and being close to New York City, there really isn't a reason not to visit if you're close to the area.

Nice Course, But Only a Few Memorable Holes

Course was in good condition. Greens were true and running a good speed. There are a few very nice, memorable holes, but overall, the layout can be a bit monotonous. Some greens had pin placements where you could not stop the ball near the hole, nor even on the green. Par 3s are long from the back tees and Par 5s are long as well. It is a very nice course, but not something where every hole will impress you. Also, even in mid-October, there were gnats all over the place which made it hard to concentrate, especially when putting. Even with the pros and cons, it is definitely worth playing.
