BENTON HARBOR — Ten years ago, legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus planted his flag on the Golf Club at Harbor Shores, designing the course and inaugurating it as part of a storied foursome and sinking an unbelievable 102-foot putt.

On Friday, Nicklaus returned to the resort to see how it has continued to grow and support the community, including a new college scholarship sponsored by Whirlpool Corp. and PGA of America and named for Nicklaus and his wife, Barbara.
