BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (AP) -- The Michigan Supreme Court is expected to hear arguments in a case seeking to get three holes of an 18-hole Benton Harbor golf course out of Jean Klock Park on the shore of Lake Michigan.

The Herald-Palladium of St. Joseph reports lawyers will argue the case in January. Carol Drake and Clellen Bury sued over the use of the park and lost in lower courts.

The centerpiece of the Golf Club at Harbor Shores project is a Jack Nicklaus-designed course. An event to officially open the course was held in August.

Benton Harbor agreed to lease a portion of Jean Klock Park to the Harbor Shores development team, angering some who fought plans for the course. They claim it's illegal for public park land to be used for private interests.
