Since its highly anticipated opening in July 2010, Harbor Shores has quickly become a premier destination for golfers throughout the Midwest.

Before the course had even opened to the public, Harbor Shores was chosen to host one of golf’s premier events – The Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid. This major championship, known for its intense competition among the legendary names in golf, will make its home at Harbor Shores two times over the next three years, 2012 and 2014.

In addition to the critically acclaimed Jack Nicklaus Signature Design golf course, Harbor Shores is also home to a state-of-the-art learning academy.

A "Hot Deals" Bargain Immaculate course. Extremely well maintained. Very playable, but challenging. Tee shots are reasonable with a few forced carries. Second shots are demanding as you must be on the proper tier of the greens for scoring opportunities. Very few straight putts on the course. Greens will challenge the even the best putters. Only thing that kept the day from being perfect was the weather. 45-50 degrees with a 15-20 mile an hour wind. Made the course play extra tough. May 22, 2015
challenging greens The course is in excellent condition. The course gives you some room off the tee but your approach shot needs to be well placed for a chance at par. It's a hard up and down if you miss due to tricky greens. The course leaves me wanting to play in again to due better. September 25, 2014
loved the greens! For the golfer who sometimes misses the fairway, finding your ball in the thick roughs can add considerable time to your round. Surrounding terrain is beautiful. Loved it! September 24, 2014
Excellent course With the exception of #7... just an outstanding variety of holes. While attractive and dramatic... #7 is dangerously close to goofy golf. September 18, 2014
simply breath taking You can NOT go wrong with this course it has every aspect you could ever want in 18 holes. We played for the twilight rate which made it easier on the wallet but I would pay full rate to go back again ! August 24, 2014
Awesome golf experience! The course proved to be fair to both low and mid handicappers in our group. Greens are fun, but some were quite challenging. The course architecture and surrounding natural environment, as well as the friendly and knowledgable staff, made our golf experience one of the best. August 11, 2014
Saturday afternoon on Harbor Shores Host of the 2012 and 2014 Senior PGA Championship I decided to make the drive over from Chicago and pay Harbor Shores a visit. I had seen Matty G's piece on the Golf Channel which drew my interest. It was about a 1 hour 45 min drive from Chicago (Old Town area). My tee time was at 4:00 with the $75 rate and one thing to note is the time change. I had completely forgotten about it being on EST and my phone did not change luckily I arrived early so it wasn't a major issue but something to remember. Practice area is great with large short game chipping/sand area along with standard driving range and putting green. When it comes to the course I played from the 6200 yard tees which is a little short for my liking, but the only real option available besides 6850 at the back. A lot of the holes are bunker lined that you must avoid. I found some of the tees to sit down some, where it was difficult to visually see the entire hole. The greens like some Nicklaus courses I have played in the past have a lot of extreme undulation in them. The speeds were not very quick which made these slopes playable but when hitting approach shots one must consider the pin position to avoid the dreaded 3 putt. A downside I found to the course was the amount of divots and ball marks that were on the course. Because the course only having the 6200 yardage that a majority of players play all the landing areas are filled with divots and a lot of those divots were not filled in and maintained. Also, pace of play in the afternoon was very slow and we only saw the Marshall once. Teeing off at 4:00 we finished at 8:40 in a threesome! Overall I found it to be a very fair test of golf and one of those courses that you definitely need to play 4-5 times to understand the nuances of it. The greens can be tricky but if you are on the right level/tier of them there are birdies to be made. Looooooong stretches in-between holes would highly recommend not walking this course Hole Favorites #7 first glimpse of the dunes reminds me of Arcadia Bluffs same #8 Amongst massive dunes along Lake Michigan as well #2 Blow-out bunkering style August 3, 2014
Excellent layout. Policies need work. World class layout. Very good staff but halfway house closes way too early. Should allow a few walking times each day. July 25, 2014
