The 107th Michigan Amateur is at the Country Club of Detroit. The historic club was the site of Arnold Palmer’s 1954 US Amateur Win. Palmer would go pro after that, and the rest is history.
The Country Club of Detroit is slated to host the 2020 US Senior Amateur Championship, bringing it back to recognition as one of the top courses in the United States.
The 107th Michigan Amateur marks the fifth time the club has hosted the event, although the last time was 1929. The Country Club of Detroit also hosted the first Michigan Women’s Amateur in 1914 and has been the site of that championship five times as well with the last of those being in 1949.
The course at the Country Club of Detroit is an H.S. Colt design that in recent years has been restored by Michigan’s Tom Doak.
Put this one on the list of Michigan courses I would love to play.
Here are a couple of videos from the Golf Association of Michigan previewing the Championship. The players are very luck to get the chance to play there.
