The Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort: Red/Blue/White

Shawnee-on-Delaware, PA Public


The history at Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort is overwhelming. Sam Snead was the facility’s PGA pro and actually lost in the final match of 1938 PGA Championship to Paul Runyan. A.W. Tillinghast, who had never built a course before, was given the opportunity by his friend, a wealthy businessman, C.C. Worthington. Tillinghast launched his career and the resort enjoyed prominence as a great destination. Though its national relevance in the game may have diminished, and over time battling the nearby Delaware River and its damages have lost some of Tilly's first design attempts, Shawnee still hosts tournaments in Pennsylvania—and for any fan of Tillinghast’s work, remains a cool study.
