~ Welcome ~
Entering through the towering pines of Tam O’ Shanter, symbols of history take you on a journey of an enjoyable and relaxing game of golf.
The excitement begins as you walk to the first tee and observe the bronze plaque commemorating Sam Snead’s record score of 65 in his 1949 exhibition. Bob Toski, Lew Worsham, Dutch Harrison, Betsy Rawls, Betty Hicks, and Patty Berg have all appeared in exhibitions at Tam O’ Shanter.
As you stand on No. 1 Tee you can imagine the reactions of over 110,000 people in 1936 listening to West Middlesex native Alf Landon announce his candidacy for President.
Tam O’ Shanter is known for its lush green watered fairways and fast bent grass greens bordered by large native hardwoods and pines. The beauty abounds as you see the panoramic views overlooking the rolling wooded hills of the Shenango Valley.
During your round you will see the natural settings and animal habitats we have preserved. These efforts along with our concern for the environment earned Tam O’ Shanter the prestigious Environmental Steward Award along with the status of Certified Audobon Cooperative Sanctuary.
Tam O’ Shanter, considered “One of Pennsylvania’s Finest Public Courses”, is a challenge to all levels of golfers. The signature hole is the 115-yard Par 3 No. 14 known as “Death Valley” because of the many good scores that have died in its depths. Your tee shot is through a narrow corridor of large trees to a plateau green. A ball falling short makes a par difficult. A tombstone memorializes those that have fallen in its depths.
Our beautiful Clubhouse overlooks the 9th and 18th greens. Our professional staff can accommodate small or large outings, while our well-stocked Pro Shop can meet all of your golfing needs.
