Play the historic Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort — host site of the 1938 PGA Championship in which Paul Runyan defeated Sam Snead in the final. Graced with magnificent trees, picturesque mountains and a beautiful river, this course was A. W. Tillinghast’s original design, completed in 1911. The PGA Professionals at Shawnee’s Tillinghast Golf Academy introduce you to the great game of golf and the basics of play including history, etiquette and rules.


Highlights

• PGA instructors demonstrate techniques, golf etiquette, the rules and tips for practicing in a fun, informative series of lessons.
• Take part in instruction and practice each morning, then play nine holes each afternoon.
• Enjoy a farewell dinner at the Gem & Keystone Tavern, specializing in local foods and craft beer.
