Harbor Shores Golf Club, Benton Harbor, Michigan

Even with 375 golf courses in play, course designer Jack Nicklaus holds special memories of Harbor Shores Golf Club in Benton Harbor, Michigan.

“This wasn’t just about a golf course. With Harbor Shores, we set out really to change a community. When we started, we had a factory where the first tee is. We had to remove toxic waste and buildings. This was a non-profit project. But in the end, the whole course looks beautiful and we hope is enjoyable to play.”

When the course first opened in 2010, Harbor Shores ranked No. 3 in GOLF Magazine’s Best New Courses You Can Play list. GOLF Magazine said,

“One of the year’s feel-good stories is this short but stern Jack Nicklaus Signature design that weaves through hardwoods, marshland and the massive white sand dunes that edge Lake Michigan on holes 7, 8 and 9.”

The Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid played Harbor Shores May 24-29, 2016 for the third time and returns in 2018 on May 22-27.  Past champion Rocco Mediate (2016) returns to defend against a strong field, including Colin Montgomerie, Scott McCarron and Miguel Angel Jimenez.



PGA TOUR returns to Silverado

What if a PGA tour pro had a golf resort?

You’d walk from your room to the first tee and play a challenging course with beautifully maintained greens that roll pure and true. After your round, you’d enjoy a gourmet meal paired with a Napa Valley wine.
