The Golf Guide to the Top Courses
Where2Golf says: 

Harborside International's two excellent golf courses, Port & Starboard, are both well-rated and always popular layouts. They were designed by Dick Nugent to bring the great tradition of British links golf to the Chicago area, and are the closest top-quality public access courses to downtown Chicago.

In many respects Port and Starboard are "peas-in-a-pod," both equally good, challenging and enjoyable courses to play. These open links-style layouts will not disappoint, with many attractive features and several excellent holes to enjoy. With little to separate the two courses in terms of quality, golfing challenge and views (of the Chicago skyline, Lake Calumet and the surrounding eclectic area), our advice is play one course in the morning, stay for lunch and then try the other in the afternoon.
