Port Course

Overall in great shape. Great links layout of that is what you’re looking for. Very penal if you miss the fairway even by a few yards. If your a scratch or better you’ll enjoy the course otherwise bring plenty of balls.

First Time Playing

I really enjoyed playing this golf course. Very nice layout, course conditions were excellent.
BUTTT an issue I had was that there was no starter on the tee box. I had booked a tee time for 5 o’clock, and didn’t tee off until about 540 because two groups had jumped in front of me on the tee box. Being the nice person I am I didn’t say anything and when about my round. Furthermore, I was unable to finish my round, cutting it off at about hole 14 when I could no longer see my ball. Hoping for the amount of money you pay I wish there would be some “order” come twilight time. That was not the case

Represents the Windy City

The course is in great shape, beautiful view of downtown from the south side view. Challenging as usual. Harborside has the best wind at your back for 6-holes or so; the rest good luck!

Tough Conditions

It’s hard to give a realistic review due to the weather. It was in the high 40’s and the course was very wet. Not their fault. All things considered, the course was very good. Greens were in pretty good shape and fast. Still a lot if fun and wry challenging.

Great Conditions, Rough is ROUGH

The conditions and layout of this course are fantastic. We played on a chilly, wet morning so the pace was great. Water comes into play from time to time, with it being more prevalent on the back 9. The bunker placements make them hard to avoid and make it so you have to be strategic throughout the round. My only complaint is the rough was a little too bushy making any shot from the rough a tough lie. I know hitting from the rough is supposed to be difficult, I just found it to be a little too much of a penalty. With that said, the fairways are fairly wide which helps to avoid the rough.

Great job by greens keeper

The greens are in outstanding shape this season and I’m really happy that they trimmed the fescue back. It’s still punishing, but not a guaranteed lost ball.

Experienced Golfer

Played the Port course. Excellent golf course but players who play do not take care of the course. I highly suggest that the Starter and Golf Staff inform the players when they sign in and when they start to please fix divots and ball marks. Course is a championship course and needs respect.

Stellar

Staff warm friendly! For a $53 dollar hot deal it’s the best bang for your buck on a weekday. Full price would be harder to play more often. Course in amazing condintions for a public course. Love electric carts with GPS! They let me go out as a single before my actual tee time to avoid being behind a few three somes. Done in 3.5 hours
Cheers

Long grass making the course unplayable

I love this course, but it seems like they're growing the long grass to the point where it might as well be an automatic lost ball hazard. I wish they would trim that back a little bit. The course is starting to get a little gimmicky with this stuff. You can miss a lot of fairways or greens by 5 yards and be lost in that stuff. Totally unnecessary and is cheapening the experience, but otherwise a top notch place.

Nice Course, Great Practice Facility

I love Harborside, when it's not at full price. I try to play when it is not busy and I can play fast. Two beautiful layouts that are challenging and fun. Can get windy, but overall a fun course.
