Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort
Located 72 miles west of New York City on the banks of the Delaware River, The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is known as the 'Gem of the East.' The A.W. Tillinghast design features 24 of 27 holes on Shawnee Island in the middle of the Delaware River. Breathtaking views and a great layout convinced Golf Digest to list Shawnee as one of 'America’s All-Time Greatest Courses.' To continue Shawnee’s outstanding golf tradition, the elite Tillinghast Golf Academy was launched in June 2003. Golfing visitors are trained at a learning center created to replicate the greatest design characteristics found on Tillinghast courses.
