The clubhouse at Hickory Creek Golf Club in Washtenaw County has burned, according to an MLive report.
The fire was eventually quelled after more than two hours on the scene but not before the clubhouse, a 12,000-square-foot structure, was destroyed and deemed a total loss, officials said.
The fire caused more than $1 million in damage, officials said, adding the cause of the fire remains under investigation.MLive
Hickory Creek once was my teacher golf league’s home. The clubhouse was a nice place for drinks and food after the round. A couple of friends of mine have worked in the restaurant there at various times over the years.
Oakland Hills’ clubhouse burned in 2022. Western G&CC lost its clubhouse in 2018. Plum Hollow had a cart barn fire in 2022. Brentwood GC had a cart barn fire in 2021.
My home course, Washtenaw Golf Club had clubhouse fires in 1951, 1952 and 1987.

And as you reported, in 2017 the clubhouse at Reddeman Farms Golf Course burned to the ground and the golf course was permanently closed.
I always wondered about Reddeman Farms. The fact that no one attempted to operate the course out of a trailer told me they were not making money from their golf operations.
I hope the owners of Hickory Creek had good insurance coverage and continue to operate from temporary quarters. We have lost a fair number of local courses and it would be a shame to see another one drop.
I have heard that Cattails (S. Lyon) and Coyote (New Hudson) are are the chopping block.
I had totally forgotten about Reddeman.
