While my favorite golfer of all-time is Arnold Palmer, Dan’s is Jack Nicklaus. That’s why it was only fair that we played Harbor Shores on our trip.
A Nicklaus design, Harbor Shores has hosted the Senior PGA Championship on a number of occasions.
The course is set on the shores of Lake Michigan and reminds me a lot of Whistling Straights. Native sand dunes and seaside grasses eat up errant shots. Keeping it on the green stuff is paramount.
A mix of both long and short holes make this track interesting. While some holes are brutally difficult, others afford a chance for birdie if you execute the proper shots.
One thing is certain above all else though, the wind can flat out blow.
Even though our scores weren’t the best, Dan and I both enjoyed our experience at Harbor Shores.
