As the first snowflakes gently blanket Harbor Shores Golf Club in Benton Harbor, Claire Fetters, PMP, is thinking spring. The 2020 KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, which is held biennially on the Jack Nicklaus-designed Harbor Shores course, is only weeks away. As the marketing and promotions manager, Fetters is counting down the days until this international event tees off. “May 19 through 24 will be here before we know it,” she smiles. Which is why she wanted to talk with you about getting lodging reservations and tickets now.

Jay Fettig, owner of North Pier Brewing Company, loves craft beer. So in May 2016, he opened a small microbrewery and taproom on a little corner in the Benton Harbor’s Hill District. It’s an unbeatable location for many reasons. Tucked away from busy streets, it teems with energy. It’s practically on the Harbor Shores Golf Club course, with the cart path curving around the brewery between holes 13 and 14. It’s a stone throw from the popular Benton Harbor Arts District, Lake Michigan beaches, hiking/biking/x-country ski trails, Paw Paw River paddle sports and the annual Steelhead Triathlon route. The location is great but what’s exceptional is the customer service and what pours from the taps.

For 14 seasons, audiences and musicians have held a collective breath as Robin Fountain raises his conductor’s baton. With a swoosh of his arm, everyone exhales as music notes make hearts swell with joy, pound with fear, beat peacefully or shatter with deep sadness. No one plays on peoples’ emotions like Maestro Fountain, music director of the Southwest Symphony Orchestra (SMSO).
