Attention Construction Area – Authorized Personnel Only
It is an exciting time at Harbor Hills. As we expand Harbor Hills to welcome new neighbors and club members, we ask that you refrain from entering the Bella Vista section. This new section of the community is surrounded by golf course holes 2 through 8. This construction zone is filled with heavy equipment and machinery and is dangerous to non-authorized personnel.
Golfers please do not enter the construction zone at any time. Please check with the pro shop for any updated course rules.
Additionally, please do not use the path that crosses through Bella Vista from Fairway Village to The Pines and the Grove sections.

Cookies for Our Troops

On November 28th, the Harbor Hills community joined our "Cookie Lady" Lillian Riley (in Elf hat) to break a record of 100 boxes of dozens and dozens of cookies and treats to supply our troops overseas this Holiday season. Thanks to Dick and Skitch Koenig for coordinating this effort and to everyone who participated in and contributed to this awesome accomplishment!

Martini Night

Martini Night at the Club!

Friday, November 30
Bar Open 6 p.m.
Dinner Served Until 8:30 p.m.
Dancing Until 10 p.m.

Here's another chance to sample that exotic martini you've seen in magazines. Harbor Hills' own Bartini Man Tim Collette will concoct a variety of libations in the lounge, where dance band Cool Breeze will entice members to boogie all night.

Marvelous Martinis--at the hand of General Manager Steve Henne--will also be available downstairs in the Signature Grille.

For dinner—there will be open ordering in the Grille.*

Even if you're not a martini drinker, sip a glass of wine or toss back a cool one, but don't miss the dinner and great dance music. Come enjoy your club!

No reservations required.

Soufle Class

'Souffle Class' presented by Annette Rystrom. As you can tell, she did a super job! She mastered both a chocolate souffle and an Asiago souffle. Annette affectionately renamed the latter the "Harbor Hills Asiago Souffle" due to the recipe modifications needed to accomodate our convection (rather than a conventional) oven in the upstairs kitchen.

Club Meetings

It has always been the policy of the Harbor Hills Country Club to allow Clubs and functions that are comprised of Harbor Hills Country Club Members only space for their meetings free of charge.

It has also been our policy that if a Club allows non-members to join, that Club should pay a room rental fee.

Recently some of our Clubs have allowed non-Members of the Harbor Hills Country Club to join their Club. Those Clubs that allow this must pay a room rental fee .

Allowing non members the same rights as members would dilute our membership and we ask all members to follow these rules.

For those that support our Club by being members we appreciate your business and support.
