About

Type Resort

Length 6800 yards
Slope 126
Rating 72.0

With a unique location on an island in the Delaware River, Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort boasts 27 scenic holes of championship golf. The island dates back to long ago when Pennsylvania was still covered by glacial ice fields. The Wisconsin Glacier, one of the last glaciers, formed the island when it melted. Today, the gently rolling landscape is abundant with trees and wildlife, providing a secluded atmosphere that is perfect for golf. The three nines are played in three different 18-hole combinations. The Blue/Red Course crisscrosses the landscape, offering beautiful views of the surrounding Poconos Mountains along the way. The layout is mostly flat but there are some strategically placed bunkers to keep it interesting. In addition to the three courses, there is also a nine-hole, par-3 course.

Deceptively Challenging

I played the Red and Blue courses. The fairways are wide open, but the rough is extremely thick. I wasn't the only golfer losing balls in the thick grass, resulting in a slow pace on the Blue course. The greens are undulating and in great shape. I played far from my best round, but the people were all friendly. Overall, a nice time.

Staff kudos

We arrived early for our tee time and the starter got us out right away. Later the player assistant assured us that we could finish even though it was getting dark.

Enjoyable course, some changes due to bridge construction

Enjoyed Shawnee — staff was excellent, in particular, John, who was setting us up on carts and giving directions. He was incredibly friendly and thorough.

The course was in good condition on the fairway and greens. I played at twilight so the rate was a great value, but not sure I’d feel the same if I pid to play at peak times. Played the white and red nine hole sections, which had a couple holes with greens and tee boxes rearranged due to bridge construction. Overall, it was enjoyable and fun, and despite a lot of golfers on the course, pace was great — played 18 in 3 hours.

Nice course

Pleasantly happy with the course. Conditions were good despite the rain from the previous night. They are building a new bridge and modified two holes temporarily while they are building the bridge.
Nice brewery on site. Highly recommend, stop at the brewery on your way out, they also have food.

Annual round at the Shawnee!

We own a timeshare minutes away from this course so we only get to play once a year. We try to get out at least twice during our stay. Love the layout of this course, fairways and greens are kept on top shape, friendly staff and beautiful scenery surrounding the course. Would highly recommend if spending time in the East Stroudsburg area.

Decent track poor pace

The pace is intolerable and rangers need to patrol the course. We played on Monday and it was like playing in quicksand. Won’t go back.
