Under this structure, Harbor Shores will benefit from select services provided by Landscapes Golf Management. The company’s range of expertise includes marketing, sales, accounting and financial management, golf operations, food and beverage, agronomy, and vertical and horizontal construction.

“We are very excited to be working with Landscapes Golf Management that has a proven track record in the golf industry enhancing golf and resort operations,” Harbor Shores Development CEO Chris Cook said. “There are functions in every golf and resort operation that can be better served through outsourcing. Through Landscapes’ experience and knowledge, our resort operations and development will continue to improve overall performance.”

Harbor Shores Resort includes the scenic Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course and The Inn at Harbor Shores. The transformational development is part of a vision made possible by $900 million in strategic investments and a collective set of projects with collaborating community leaders and organizations, led by the Whirlpool Foundation and its benefactor, global home appliance leader Whirlpool Corporation.

The resort hosted the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship in 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018, 2020 and 2022. The course features memorable scenery and diverse terrains that challenge all levels of golfers – including holes weaving around wetlands, through the coastal dunes on the shores of Lake Michigan, and finally meandering along the scenic Paw Paw River.

“Harbor Shores GM Josh Doxtator runs a terrific operation with a high-quality team and we are pleased to be a part of it,” Landscapes Golf Management President Tom Everett said. “The infrastructure we have built allows operations like Harbor Shores to tap into our behind-the-scenes, centralized talent base, purchasing programs, systems and best practices with little to no risk.”
