The crowning jewel of the revitalized Harbor Shores community is the public Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course that showcases the natural wonders of the Lake Michigan landscape. This course was home to the 73rd annual Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid, and it will see the return of this event in 2014, 2016 and 2018. Read on for a closer look at the legacy of the Senior PGA Championship and the course that will challenge golfers on exciting terrain that has been manicured to perfection.
A challenging course
The Harbor Shores golf course lives up to the high standards of Jack Nicklaus Signature Design while presenting golfers of all skill levels with a challenging 18 holes. The course sets a breathtaking background for the tournament while players are put to the test.
In 2012, the course saw a close competition between John Cook and Roger Chapman, who was finally named the champion after he pulled ahead to secure victory in the third round. Other Senior PGA Championship winners have included Khoki Idoki, Hale Irwin, Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus himself.
A thriving golf community
Outside of the Senior PGA Championship, the community of Harbor Shores enjoys golf throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons. Vacation packages bring guests from around the nation to the prestigious course, which was named No. 3 on GOLF Magazine’s list of best new courses in 2010. The course was built as a cornerstone of transition in an area that had been a forgotten industrial zone.
