New Buffalo offers Whittaker Woods Golf Club, an 18-hole championship course. Its Clubhouse is just as stunning as its amazing course. Check them out online to book a tee time or take advantage of their online specials.

Just west of Whittaker Woods is Grand Beach Municipal Golf Course, a 9-hole course in Grand Beach. Tee times are not required here so it’s perfect for those last-minute getaways.

Further north is Pebblewood Golf Course, a beautiful 18-hole course in Bridgman, and Meadows Family Golf Center, a 9-hole course in Baroda.

On the outskirts of Harbor Country, in Benton Harbor, is Harbor Shores, an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course with diverse terrain challenges and incredible views of Lake Michigan.

So start making your plans — it’s time to tee off in Harbor Country!
