Where to Stay During the Senior PGA Championship (Best Hotels)


    You can book a lovely room right at the Harbor Shores Golf Club-see their website for details and availability. Be sure to book early as this event draws a huge crowd and rooms will book up quickly.

    Since I grew up in St. Joseph, I personally recommend:

  • The Boulevard Inn: It's a lovely hotel located right on the bluff overlooking Lake Michigan. Downtown shops, Silver Beach, and an abundance of dining options are located just a short walk from the hotel in St. Joseph, Michigan.  Very safe, beautiful area. Spend your evening walking along the bluff and having dinner on their patio! Address: 521 Lake Blvd, Saint Joseph, MI 
  • The Inn at Harbor Shores  features a marina, waterfront restaurant "Plank's Tavern," dockside bar, full service spa, coffee shop & wine bar, 12 miles of walking trails, water sports rentals with launch, bicycle rental, beaches and shops within a 5 minute drive.  All guestrooms feature a sliding glass door leading to a private balcony, undercounter refrigerator and more. Fitness center, outdoor pool, indoor pool...
    Address: 800 Whitwam Dr, Saint Joseph, MI 

Best Restaurants Nearby


  • We are a little obsessed with eating outside on the rooftop balcony at The Buck Burgers and Brew in St. Joseph. The views of the downtown are awesome!
  • Love pizza? Check out Silver Beach Pizza, located just steps from the Silver Beach carousel and beach! Super casual fun atmosphere. Outdoor seating is available.
  • If you just want a quick sandwich so you can take the evening to sit on the swings on the bluff, check out Broad Street Café. Sandwiches, soups-made fast. Um, and did you see that amazing chocolate chip cookie in the photo above? Seriously. 
  • The Boulevard Inn and Bistro (​521 Lake Boulevard St. Joseph) has lovely outdoor seating too.
