Doxtator new GM at Harbor Shores

BENTON HARBOR — The Harbor Shores Operating Committee announced that Joshua Doxtator, PGA, has been appointed General Manager of The Jack Nicklaus Signature Design Golf Course at Harbor Shores Resort in Benton Harbor, after a national search to fill this high-profile position.

Doxtator, who will officially begin his new role on Feb. 18, is well known for his passion for guest services and has built a reputation over his 20-year career as an innovator in the golf course management industry. Doxtator has a proven track record in managing top-rated courses and food and beverage operations.

He comes to Harbor Shores Resort after previously serving as the PGA Chief Operating Officer at Thornberry Creek at Oneida, the Official Golf Course of the Green Bay Packers. During his tenure at Thornberry Creek, Doxtator was responsible for notable club renovations and oversight of the Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic, an annual event on the LPGA Tour schedule which debuted in 2017.

“I am excited to join a team that has used golf as a redevelopment catalyst for its community and, as host to the most prestigious championship in senior golf, continues to be a centerpiece for growing the game,” Doxtator said. “Success starts with providing the very best guest experience for anyone who steps foot on the facility. I look forward to helping showcase this amazing property throughout the region and working with the PGA of America to host the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship every other year.”

On the appointment, Operating Committee member Jeff Fettig noted, “We know we have found the very best person to continue to take the Harbor Shores golf experience to an elevated level. He sees our vision for Harbor Shores Resort and the integral role it plays in our community, while also providing one of the best golf experiences in the region.”

Just eight years after opening the Jack Nicklaus Signature Design Course, Harbor Shores Resort has been a four-time host to the KitchenAid Senior PGA Championship, the most historic and prestigious major Championship in senior golf.

This Championship is held biennially at Harbor Shores Resort through 2024. The PGA of America assisted in conducting the search for the general manager position amongst its 29,000 members alongside the Harbor Shore Operating Committee, which was formed to accelerate the march to making Harbor Shores Resort the premier golf experience in the Midwest.
