This Donald Ross design dates back to 1923. The land was donated to Detroit by Horace Rackham, one of the original Ford Motor Company shareholders. Owned by the City of Detroit but operated by Vargo Golf Company (replaced American Golf in 2011), the course exhibits many features common to Ross courses. Lots of bunkers, small undulating greens and generous driving areas. At 6,555 yards (70.8/118 rating), the big dog does not have to bark much, but you better have your iron and sand game in shape. While owned by Detroit, the course is actually located in Huntington Woods and access is from I-696 which borders the southern edge of the layout.
