Shawnee Bridge Dedication

The Historic Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort Marks Another Page in it's History Book

SHAWNEE ON DELAWARE, Pa. (March 25, 2024) – The historic Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is delighted to announce the official dedication of its Permanent Golf Bridge.  This ceremony will take place on Sunday, May 5, 2024, at 2:00 PM.

The dedication of the Permanent Golf Bridge is a milestone for our resort, representing a major investment in the future of Shawnee by The Kirkwood Family.

The completion of this project underscores their steadfast commitment to innovation, accessibility, and environmental stewardship.

Located 75 miles from New York City and 100 miles from Philadelphia, The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort has long been revered as an iconic golf destination. The construction of the Permanent Bridge, which began in 2022, represents a significant leap forward in enhancing our guest experiences and solidifying the resort’s standing as a premier golf destination.

“We are thrilled to invite our guests, community members, and the media to join us for this historic occasion as we dedicate the Permanent Golf Bridge at Shawnee,” remarked Ginny Kirkwood, owner of the resort. “This bridge not only symbolizes progress but also reflects our unwavering commitment to sustainability and providing an exceptional experience for all who visit.”

The previous seasonal bridge, resting on the riverbed, faced challenges during high water events, impacting its stability. The new Permanent Golf Bridge, spanning from the mainland to Shawnee Island, ensures a stable connection without disrupting the natural flow of the Delaware River.

The Permanent Golf Bridge eliminates the need for the yearly ritual of bridge installation, allowing the resort to allocate more resources to enhancing course conditions and developing new projects that will elevate the overall guest experience.

With year-round access to Shawnee’s expansive 200-acre island, the resort anticipates a host of exciting possibilities for future recreational opportunities. Having celebrated over 110 years of hospitality and golf operations, The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort remains committed to creating unique and unparalleled experiences for its guests.

Members of the media are cordially invited to attend the official dedication and ceremony for the Permanent Golf Bridge on Sunday, May 5, 2024, at 2:00 pm. For inquiries, RSVP, or additional information, please contact Jeromy Wo, Director of Marketing at jwo@shawneeInn.com or 1-570-424-4000.
