Harbor Shores has hosted the Senior PGA Championship (2012 and 2014), one of the five senior major championships. | Each hole at Harbor Shores is named after a plant that is indigenous to the area. At each tee box a metal sculpture, with at least one piece of handblown glass, holds a plaque describing one of Jack Nicklaus’s 18 major championship victories. The sculptor Josh Andres, and the glassblower Jerry Catania, have studios in the Arts District in Benton Harbor.
