great value and well kept course

We've been coming to Shawnee to play for the last few years whenever the Group Golfer vouchers come out for there. It's a 90 min ride from Philly and well worth the trip to play. The golf is run professionally and well and there is a nice pro shop and practice putting green. There is not a range to hit balls so be ready.
We played the White/Blue combo in that order. The course was in fine shape and the greens putted smooth. The greens were a little soft probably due to rain earlier in the week and I wish people would fix ball marks better. I did my part in repairing many of them.
The rough is pretty thick at Shawnee so keep that tee shot straight or be punished. The greens are on the smaller side and have plenty of slope. The blue #7 hole is one of America's greatest par 3s in my opinion. Its a 170 yd shot over a 40 yd expanse of the Delaware River to a raised green that has a false front. You'll need to navigate the breeze and pick the right club. Anything short of the green is a goner.
You'll also notice that there are far more Par 5's here than normal. When playing the White 9, you'll have to wait till hole 6 till you find a Par 4.
A great snack shop is out on the course where many holes intersect. I highly recommend one the beers that they brew at Shawnee which you can get at the stand. The Amber Ale was a winner.
We are coming back later in the year for another set of Vouchers for some fall golf.

Played blue to red. Excellent conditions. Very friendly staff. Most holes on an island in Delaware River. Greens were consistent and pin placement fair. Wide fairways lined by mature trees. Craft brewery on premises for post round beers. Definitely play again.

Golf Serenity

A beautiful course nestled on an island in the Delaware river. The only sounds you hear are the birds and the occasional hot air balloon. A fun course managed by outstanding staff that go out of their way to make sure you have a great time.

top notch old style golf

we've played Shawnee 3 times in the last 15 months. Yesterday, we played the blue 9 and then the red 9. The greens were in good shape and the fairways on the blue 9 had been recently aerated. The views and scenery in the fall is magnificent and hard to beat. For value, this place is as good as it gets as there are many great deals to play here. The par 3s are the highlight with 2 par 3s playing over the river and a few other long ones. If you've never played here, its a must and a lovely experience.

Old course but still playable

It was hot and muggy with barely a breeze, but I got a full flavor of AW Tillinghast design for my first play of this course (c. 1910). As a typical resort course, the fairway were welcoming (at least for me, my playing partners not so much) offering plenty of room off the tee and for second shots on the copious par 5s (8 total on 27 holes).

I played Red/White for my round although all three nines are comparable and the entire course, except for three holes near the clubhouse, are on an island in the Delaware River. There are lots of old, large trees and, for the most part, they are out of the way. Approach shots are tricky, however, and the greens had a lot of subtle breaks. Bring your best short game Owing to the design specs in the early 20th century, don't expect deep bunkers and the course is quite flat except on some tee boxes and greens.

Overall impression: an easy, flat, old course with horrendous cart paths. If you are looking for creative golf - this course is not your best option. Don’t get misled by relatively high rating/slope.

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.
