Golf Season Soon in Full Swing at Shawnee Resort

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 (Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania) - The historic Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort prepares for another great season of golf. This year, however, this golf destination also prepares for some exciting changes, sure to delight any avid golfer. The Resort announces changes to its Great Bear golf course and the Shawnee Country Club.

In 2017, Shawnee’s Great Bear golf course will be fully open to the public. Every tee time will be available to the public on every day of the week. In previous years, Great Bear reserved the most desired tee times for Country Club members exclusively. These restrictions no longer stand for the 2017 season. Expanded access to tee times at Great Bear is also available for golf groups.


The Shawnee Country Club membership now includes unlimited access to both the Shawnee and Great Bear courses. With access to resort facilities and both golf courses, Shawnee Country Club boasts the most robust membership in the Pocono Mountains. Shawnee Country Club extends great savings to golfers, including 35% off the first year of membership and 15% off the second. Corporate and social memberships are available as well.


For those looking for a quick golf getaway, The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort offers a Stay and Play packages starting at $99 a person. The historic Golf Resort hosts a popular Highlands and Islands package that allows golfers to experience the classic design of their beautiful Tillinghast Island Course one day and play a round of golf on the modern Jack Nicklaus design at Great Bear the next. Of course, the resort offers packages that include just one day of golf at either course as well. For those golf aficionados traveling with a companion who is less enthusiastic about the sport – they’ve got you covered with a golfer/non-golfer package.

The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is a must-play destination for any golfer. With the golf season around the corner, start dusting off the clubs and book a golf getaway at this resort online at ShawneeInn.com or by calling 1-800-SHAWNEE.
