SHAWNEE ON DELAWARE,  Pennsylvania (February 12, 2013)  — With spring just around the corner, the historic Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is rolling out Free Golf in April.  

Shawnee is offering both day golfers and overnight travelers an opportunity to take advantage of Shawnee’s Free Golf promotion.  For day golfers, Shawnee’s Free Golf promotion is just that – free  greens fees at Shawnee from opening day until April 25.  A special overnight package was created for those interested in lodging at The Shawnee Inn.
