Get Golf Ready In 5 Days At The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort

New player development program provides fun, fast and affordable lessons

Shawnee on Delaware, Pennsylvania (April, 27, 2009) — The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is bringing adults into the game of golf in a fast, fun and affordable way through the new national golf initiative, “Get Golf Ready in 5 Days.” This program is comprised of a series of five introductory lessons offered by Shawnee’s PGA professionals in a small-group environment, available from May 2 until September 30, 2009 for $99.00.

“The Get Golf Ready program provides an affordable and rewarding educational experience for those who are interested in learning more about the game of golf,” said Joe Manley, head golf professional of The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort. “The program will provide a casual yet structured setting using fun, skill enhancement formats to help participants become comfortable on the links and enable them to continue to develop their skills as golfers.”

Targeting the millions of adults who have limited or no experience with the game of golf, the five lessons provide basic skills instruction as well as information regarding the background of the game’s rules, etiquette and values. Significant on-course learning opportunities will be a part of each lesson. Participants will gain insight into chipping, putting, full swing, half swing and bunker play, as well as the fundamental guidelines regarding the use and maintenance of golf equipment, keeping score and navigating the course, among others.

Following the completion of the five-session program, a smooth transition into other Get Golf Ready graduate outings, such as the free and low-cost programs offered by Play Golf America (, will be provided.

Get Golf Ready was announced in November 2008 as part of the World Golf Foundation’s Golf 20/20 initiative. Currently in its inaugural year, the program is benefiting from unprecedented support and collaboration from the entire golf industry, including the World Golf Foundation, The PGA of America and other leading national and state golf associations, organizations, manufacturers, media and companies.
