The Course

o   Once a private country club in the early 1900’s, South Shore is situated entirely on land that sits on the shores of Lake Michigan, offering panoramic views of the lake, and a par 33 golf course that entails tall mature trees and tight greens protected by tucked in sand traps.  Multiple tee boxes welcome golfers of all skill levels. Complete with on-site banquet facilities, South Shore is an outstanding selection for golf outings.
