Why can't Haborside fix the cart paths?

Enjoy playing this course, but I feel like I have to take Tylenol after navigating the cart paths. The greens fees and busy and expensive courses should pay for fixing some potholes.

Good Day for golf

I played the Port course at Harborside International on 09/04/2020, with three other buddies. It’s been approximately five years since I played it last. The course has held up nicely. It looks like they cut back the high fescue, in certain areas, to make it a little more playable on wayward shots. The greens rolled nice and smooth. The staff was very courteous and friendly. It was a perfect day temperature wise. We teed off at 9:30 with a slight breeze, and the wind picked up steadily as the day went on, but it is Harborside and wind is to be expected. The only minor issue is the cart paths are beginning to show signs of wear. We had drinks on the patio, of the clubhouse, afterwards enjoying the views overlooking the eighteenth greens. I will definitely be back.

Love this course

I played the Port for the second time. Both courses are some of my favs in Chicago. The facilities, course conditions and pace of play are what keep me coming back.

A day at the beach.

A great, sometimes frustratingly difficult course. Most of the fairways are nice and wide open but there is trouble all around. I’ve never spent so much time in the bunkers in my life. This coupled with hard lies in rough near to the fairway turned could-be pars into bogeys or worse. It was a great challenge and I’ll be happy to play it again. The views of the downtown skyline and water areas are a great bonus.

One of my favorite courses in Chicago

The course is in great shape. Maybe the best greens I have played this year. Kudos to the greenskeeper. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Well worth the trip to play there.

Play it a least once

Beautiful course with more than moderate wind conditions. Greens very speedy and you must control your ball on a good line. Club selection is essential if you want to score.

No Rain Check for Twilight

Was really excited to play Harborside, but the course was plagued by rain on 8/2. However despite only getting to play 2 holes they were unwilling to offer a rain check due to a twilight policy of no rain checks. Atleast id expect the opportunity to get a rain check for twilight or a weekday, something! Waste of $70 won’t be returning.

2 Single Digit Handicap Golfers

My brother and I love this golf course, it is unique in so many ways with its open layout, no trees, immense wind, playable fescue, and slick greens. It’s a fair test for any good golfer, but if it’s really windy it can be cumbersome. We’ll be back, but once we’re ready for the challenge again.

Fun Track - Links Monster

This course was a joy to play despite its extremely challenging layout. Round came with gps cart and small bucket of balls at a very nice practice center. Even with Covid everything felt easy to navigate and the staff treated patrons like it was a private club.

Highly recommend getting out to play!
