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.

Waste of Money!

Every time I come here, I expect to get hit by a ball at some point. People are yelling “Fore!” every hole. Pace of play is ridiculous. It’ll be at least a 4.5hr round. The demographics are a bunch of 20yr olds and seniors. The younger crowd don’t really understand golf etiquette. Lots of backward hats and untucked shirts. I’d say the average handicap for the players here is 30 at this course. If you’re a bogey golfer, you’re gonna be waiting for awhile. The condition of the bunkers are terrible. Grass growing everywhere. Avoid at all costs! Play Jeffersonville, which is right down the road.

Great Place

For years this has been a great course. The greens, fairways and tee boxes are in great shape. I would like to see the cart paths(some) better maintained. Same for some of the bunkers. A true test of accuracy; as the rough is rough ! That said, I'd also like to see less clover in the rough; as it is difficult to find your ball(and doesn't look great. A good value at $40 per man.

Rating Review

The pace of play was rather slow. Unfortunately, there was no marshals! But, being the holiday weekend, I can understand.
The bunkers on the course are HORRIBLE. They have no sand in them & have mostly weeds growing. Though from a distance it looks like grass.
The green fees are rather high, for that price we can ask something a little well maintained bunkers at least!
Though it’s still early in the season, this course does NOT maintain their bunkers, even in the middle of the season!

Good Value

For less than $30 to walk on a Wednesday morning, the course is a good value. Early as possible tee time, 7:10 and played in less 3 hours.
The course is very walkable with only long green to tee from 9 to 10.
I play here 4-5 times a year.
After heavy rain the previous night, some areas don’t drain particularly well. But, didn’t really effect play.

Pace of play is too slow. No rangers to help keep pace of play. Bunkers are not filled with sand.

Tight squeeze

Frost delay led to 30 minute back up. Everyone on top of each other the entire day. Overall course is good, but very tight. Cannot hit too many long driver shots, but a unique layout nonetheless. Fairways are right next to each other so often times you’re waiting or being waited on to clear the area. Probably a much better experience on a weekday.

Needs work

Drainage iissues and the worst sand traps I’ve seen in a decade. If you’re not going to maintain the bunkers then fill the holes and plant grass. They’ve continuously gotten worse over the last 2 1:2 years. This course should be priced at $40 to ride and $30 to walk.
