Golf Free for Ten Years as a Harbor Shores First Family Member

Real estate incentive program encourages golf-loving buyers with offer of free golf

at acclaimed Jack Nicklaus-designed Golf Club at Harbor Shores



ST. JOSEPH, Mich., Feb. 8, 2010 ? Golfers in Southwest Michigan now have added incentive to purchase a home at Harbor Shores through the property?s First Family program. As a First Family member, buyers at the St. Joseph/ Benton Harbor, Mich., beach and golf resort community will receive 10 years of free golf at the highly anticipated Golf Club at Harbor Shores, an 18-hole Jack Nicklaus -design along the shores of Lake Michigan.


The Golf Club at Harbor Shores, which was recently ranked by LINKS Magazine as one of the 18 most significant golf course openings in 2010, is the centerpiece of the 530-acre resort community. The course is set to open all 18 holes this summer. Visitors to the golf course ? located 100 miles east of Chicago ? will be treated to a spacious layout that strategically winds through native wetlands along the Paw Paw River, a hardwood forest, and natural sand dunes with bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan.


In addition to 10 years of free golf, the First Family program gives residents a $10,000 home site discount, three years with no homeowners? association dues and VIP pricing for Whirlpool appliances.


Last fall, Harbor Shores broke ground on the first two of its residential properties. The resort, which will eventually feature nearly 800 residences, including charming cottages, custom homes, town homes and condominiums, represents the last, largest stretch of developable land along the shores of Lake Michigan.


?The First Family program allows golf-loving homebuyers to get in on the ground level of one of the most exciting developments in the Midwest,? said Harbor Shores Director of Marketing Ron Eng. ?This exceptional offer won?t last long.?


Golfers interested in receiving information about the First Family program should log on to or visit the Harbor Shores Discover Center at 301 State St., St. Joseph, Mich. 49085.
