Harbor Shores has become a premier destination for golfers throughout the Midwest. Harbor Shores was chosen to host one of golf’s premier events – The Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid. Harbor Shores is the first beach, golf, and residential waterfront community in Michigan’s Great Southwest and the only Jack Nicklaus Signature Course on Lake Michigan.
Just 90 minutes from Chicago, this 18-hole, public Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course reflects the high standards of the world’s leading design firm, Nicklaus Design.
The course runs over four remarkably diverse terrains that challenges golfers even as it offers a spectacular setting in which to play. The beginning holes, 1-6, are in the Inland terrain. Holes 7, 8, and 9 are in a Dunes terrain with dramatic views of Lake Michigan. Holes 10-13 are in our Woodlands terrains, which wind through rolling hills, ravines and hardwood forest. The finishing holes 14-18 are placed in a River terrain which border the Paw Paw River, Ox Creek and its wetlands.
The result is a golf course unlike any other, allowing you to experience all the different courses you can play in Michigan, all in one course. Amazing terrain. A dramatic design.
Since its founding in 1916, The PGA of America has maintained a twofold mission: to establish and elevate the standards of the profession and to grow interest and participation in the game of golf. By establishing and elevating the standards of the golf profession through world-class education, career services, marketing and research programs, The PGA enables its professionals to maximize their performance in their respective career paths and showcases them as experts in the game and in the multi-billion dollar golf industry. By creating and delivering world-class championships and innovative programs, The PGA of America elevates the public's interest in the game, the desire to play more golf, and ensures accessibility to the game for everyone, everywhere. As The PGA nears its centennial, the PGA brand represents the very best in golf.
Beginning in 1937 on the grounds of Augusta National Golf Club, the Senior PGA Championship is the most historic and prestigious event in senior golf. The Championship brings together both the legends of the game and the newest members of senior professional golf to new audiences throughout the United States. Over the last 74 years, the greatest names in golf have lifted the Bourne Trophy as Senior PGA Champion: Sarazen, Snead, Player, Palmer, Nicklaus, Watson. In 2011, KitchenAid became the presenting sponsor, and began an alliance that elevated the Senior PGA Championship to new heights.
Always rated at the top of the southwest Michigan public golf courses and the finest Benton Harbor golf course, Lake Michigan Hills Golf Club has consistently received the 4 Stars rating from Golf Digest’s – Best Places to Play. Lake Michigan Hills is located in the Benton Harbor/St. Joseph area and celebrates over 40-years of golf service to the community. The course architect, Charles Maddox, Sr., treats the golfer with many elevation changes, generous tree-lined fairways, multiple tee options, and large undulated greens.
Our clubhouse and banquet facility is located high on top of a bluff overlooking the golf course, creating a beautiful and perfect setting for wedding receptions or other private parties.
Located just a few miles from the shores of Lake Michigan, the Point is nestled in the heart of Southwest Michigan’s wine and fruit country.
Our country club is not only steeped in history and tradition, it also conveys a comfortable and personal ambiance rivaling the finest member owned clubs in the country.
Point O’ Woods, a Robert Trent Jones Sr. masterpiece, is known for its walkability. The park-like atmosphere with rolling terrain weaving past challenging greens, strategic hazards and the stands of venerable trees (some 6600 in all), was all part of the plan 60 years ago when Jones laid out the course which he later described as “perhaps my best American course.”
Recreational and clubhouse amenities include an 18 hole golf course, swimming & diving pool, tennis courts, a snack bar and restaurant. All this, along with a stylish new clubhouse overlooking the 18th green, makes for a family-friendly venue.
