Played Harbor Shores golf course. Beautifully maintained, very difficult course. Some stunning holes with really nice approaches. We will be playing again soon.

Stopped here for a stretch break, almost no one here. Beautiful views and nice facilities definitely worth the trip.

This Jack Nicklaus course has three different sections. The greens are smooth and the fairways are perfect. Golf carts are new and have GPS within them. Great service all around. Be sure to grab food or drinks on the patio.

This is a great course to play. They have tough greens, but they keep them in great shape and it was a good challenge. This course also hosts the Senior PGA tournament every two years - a must see!
