Shawnee golf course to open for 2019 season

April 6, 2019

WEST PORTSMOUTH, Ohio — Shawnee State Park golf course will open for one more season while the Ohio Department of Natural Resources begins the process of soliciting public input over the direction and redesign of the state park property.

“This is a huge win for the people of Southern Ohio,” said State Rep. Brian Baldridge, R-Winchester.

“The decision by the Department of Natural Resources to keep the golf course open for another season while also beginning a public conversation on how we can make the Shawnee State Park even better for residents is the right way to move forward together.”

The state is evaluating the best way to proceed with a community-driven redesign process, Baldridge said.
