Fantastic course

Loved the course layout and it was much fun to playing following ups and downs in the course. Course well managed considering it was mid-November. Willing to play more next year!

Excellent course/Slow pace of play

I thought course was in excellent shape for November. Drier than other courses in area for this time of year. Pace of play was atrocious. Final four holes took too long. Marshalls could have been used to speed things up. I did not see one the whole time I was there. I will play again next season.

Nice course but bit frustrating experience

Location is great and facility are fine, fairway and green conditions are well match the price, the port course is long with 6500 is challenging with so many bunkers and the rough are really rough! Lots of fun playing such course especially the last three holes view are gorgeous
But have to say something are quite annoying. First the rental club charge is 75 dollar for a st of call away and hot deal of the day is 54 or lower. Second the cart road is quite broken and there are no signs indicating in and out from the fairway and you could be locked somewhere close to green. The club has locker room and one shower, and the manager said you can ask pro shop for locker key but the pro shop staff always said they can’t give you locker key

Weekday bliss

Monday afternoon golf at Harborside was a great experience. Good pace of play and maintenance from weekend usage a has been done. The only thing I can comment on was that most of the rough was pretty gnarly, likely because early morning rain kept mowing to minimum

Fun course. Greens were a bit slow.
We had a very slow 3 some ahead of the two of us..
We finally got past them at 9 when they stopped for food.
I enjoyed the slope of the course.
Fun round of golf.

Course needs maintenance

The course is still a great layout and is challenging. However the condition of the course was disappointing. Old unrepaired divots on the green. The cart paths were so bad, we had to drive to the side of them most of the time. Even the range which has always been so great, was so chewed up it was hard to find a place to hit the ball from.

It’s still a recommendation. Not busy the day we played, so the pace of play was really good.

YIKES

Harborside used to be a great track. The cart paths hear are absolutely atrocious. Their own staff (cart girl) even mentioned how bad the paths were when we saw her on the course. The paths make Chicago potholes look good in comparison and that’s saying something.

The tee boxes are also a joke, they haven’t been cut in weeks. For a course charging $125 a round, this is unacceptable. Until the conditions on the course and cart paths improve I won’t be back.

The fairways, greens and t boxes were all in nice conditions. The course is not very forgiving, the rough could be shorter with a little more capability of finding your ball if your 2 ft off the fairway.
