Shawnee Inn is 15 minutes off I-80 at the Delaware Water Gap Exit. The golf course is a classic from 1911 with three nines, Red, White, and Blue, designed by A.W. Tillinghast. They play between 3,200-3,400 yards from the back tees mostly on a private island in the Delaware River just east of Stroudsburg. It was the venue for the 1938 PGA Championship won by Paul Runyan.

The layout features tight tree lined fairways, sand bunkers along the fairways and greens, water coming into play on a number of holes, and requires good course management. Its design hasn't been modified over the years as the greens are typical of that era, small, a bit crowned, and run fast with a good amount of undulations.

The Red nine starts adjacent to the pro shop with a modest par 4 and then crosses the Delaware River with a par 3 to an island via a bridge. The remaining 8 holes of Red are on the island as are the entire 9 holes of White and 6 holes of the Blue. The Blue nine crosses the river with another par 3 and the remaining 2 holes of Blue return to the pro shop and Inn. We played Blue and White, great layout, setting, and conditions overall. One of the great things about staying at the Shawnee Inn is the array of photographs of the celebrities and of the old golf course which are on the walls all over the hotel.

A little history, this is the golf course where the Honneymooners episode was filmed, the one where Ed and Ralph are learning to play golf by using an instruction book. In the classic scene where the book talks about addressing the ball, Ed leans down to the ball, and says, Hello Mr. Ball, and Ralph preceeds to smack him! LOL remembering the show that to those to know what I'm talking about.

This is easily the nicest public course in Pennsylvania, and so much history. They truly give you the feeling of a "member for a day". The service is impeccable and the facilities are top notch. The course was in spectacular shape, as the fairways are manicured better than most public course greens. The greens were fast, and rolled very true. I would play this course again and again, as many times as I possibly could.
