A Family-Friendly Country Club
Shannopin is a vibrant, family-oriented golf & country club located in the rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania. Our warm, professional staff help create an ideal sanctuary from everyday life by presenting excellent amenities, a breathtaking view of the Pittsburgh skyline, an impeccable 18-hole championship golf course, delicious dining options, and beautiful spaces for members & their guests.
The club was founded shortly following World War I by three friends, D. H. Roelofs, R. H. Houston and J. L. McBride, who wanted to take up golf again -- so they decided to establish a new country club! The Jackman Farm and neighboring land was purchased in 1919 to begin construction of Shannopin. Before opening its doors in 1920, the club was named after the Lenape tribe Chief Shannopin, who once settled near the area and made notable efforts in preserving the land of Western Pennsylvania.
The club's golf course was designed by legendary course architect and Oakmont native, Emil Loeffler. Son of Swiss immigrants, Loeffler was also a professional golfer, World War I veteran, and a prominent golf course superintendent. Over its near century of operation, Shannopin Country Club has added tennis, swimming, and fitness facilities, and hosts a long list of events each year --- making it an inviting destination for people of all ages.
We are located in Ben Avon Heights, about 10 miles North of Pittsburgh. Click here for directions.
