Always an enjoyable round at Harborside

Greens fees are pricey, but the Harborside experience is worth it.

Starboard play

I’ve played both courses at Harborside many times but, this was the first time for my playing partner to experience Starboard. After the round he said he now prefers it over Port. I think both are challenging and fun to play.

Conditions were great for November. Greens rolled well and the bunkers were maintained well.

Though it's late in the season it would've been nice to have a ranger out there to speed up a slow moving 4some. With limited sunlight, maintaining pace is important to allow everyone to get their round in.

Overpriced

Every time I play here I'm astonished at how this place has not yet fixed the cart paths. It's a joke amongst the staff that work there at how bad they are, yet they routinely charge you $130 for a round of golf. Pretty embarrassing for this course. There were also several tee boxes with long patchy grass like you would see at a municipal course. It's just not worth the cost.... maybe if it was maintained better.

Beautiful course

The course is in good shape, but they need to remind golfers to fix ball marks and fill divots. I know it gets a lot of use, but it is a gem and golfers should take better care of this place! I always love playing here.
