Shoop Park Golf Course is one of the few golf course situated directly on the shores of Lake Michigan. With the water setting the eastern boundary of the course, the north end of the course lies in the shadow of the Wind Point Lighthouse. Visible from every hole on the course, the lighthouse guides ships to shore and golfers to the course. The course, donated by Dr. Shoop was originally donated for the use of Junior golfers, evidence of which can still be seen today when Shoop Park plays host to the annual junior golf academy. The cooling winds off the lake make Shoop Park a summer destination for golfers and photographers alike, looking to capture the natural beauty of the course.
