Detailed description

Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort is a Resort, 27 hole golf facility located in Shawnee-On-Delaware, Pennsylvania. The facility has three, 9-hole courses, The Red Course, The White Course, and The Blue Course. these courses can be combined to make 3 different 18 hole challenges, Red/White, Red/Blue, and White/Blue.

First opened for play in 1911, the Shawnee golf course is A.W. Tillinghast's first course design.

Tillinghast's design of this famous island golf course may have been his very first, but definitely not his last. Tillinghast went on to design many famous course including; Wing Foot, Baltusrol, Beth Page Black, San Francisco Bay Club and others.

Even in his youth, Tillinghast had the vision to arrange a majority of our Shawnee golf course on an island in the middle of the Delaware River. Shawnee's golf island is the heart of our course and it is here where guests have experienced pure golf for nearly a century. What is pure golf? Pure golf is nothing but fairway between you and the green. Pure golf is a distraction free afternoon in the tranquility of nature.

Some 50 years after opening, Bill Diddle, was the architect in charge of expanding Shawnee's original 18 holes into a 27 hole golf facility.
