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.

Good luck

If you want to get hit with a ball this course is for you . The holes are all stacked on top of each other. High chance of getting drilled with a ball. Our cart got hit twice and we almost got hit on several other occasions. Helmet is recommended

Pro shop manager was rude and belligerent. Do not buy anything there, they will NOT accept any returns on clothing or any products. Do not buy a gift card there. They will not let you use it at the Chadwick's restaurant attached to the club, literally two feet away, but don't tell you that when you buy it. Their club and the restaurant/banquet are advertised together on their website and all is owned by Shannondells, yet on my Mother's 75 birthday celebration, the manager refused to accept a $50 gift card I possessed. He would not even allow me to sell it to golfing customers paying cash, and threatened to have me thrown out or call the police if I tried. I thought golf was a gentlemen's game and I thought customer service was important, but not at The Club at Shannondells. Maybe they should invest in a "golf professional" to run the pro shop, or at least someone who doesn't berate and bully the paying customer. I was a caddy for 10 years and I never treated anyone the way I was treated today. Their address may say Audubon, PA but believe me you're still in Norristown. I will never go back there and suggest you take your business anywhere else.

First Time

This course has holes right next to each other so there are constantly issues with other players in your fairway or you in theirs. Some holes are so close to each other it is hard to discern which hole/green you are aiming at.
