Tillinghast design features 24 of 27 holes on Shawnee Island in the middle of the Delaware River.

Able to Make New Friends

"The Shawnee camp that I attended was great. The staff was awesome and I learned so much. They were all so nice and easy to talk to. They were very enthused about the camp and were also willing to answer any questions. They always made sure we were having a good time. I was also able to make some new friends. Four of us are still keeping in touch and we all plan on attending the camp next year at the same time. This camp was an amazing experience."

Unbelievable Improvement!

"I was astounded to take my 14-year old son golfing AFTER your 4-day camp --- he outplayed the 3 adults who accompanied him, retaining the ball he started with for 18 holes, playing at par on a few holes, and 1-2 above par on all others, consistently. His game has radically improved! Thanks....."
