Beautiful Course and a Class Event

Recently hosted a PGA Tour event in the city of Detroit and was a great event. I volunteered as a Marshall on the 17 hole and had a great time participating in the tournament . Look forward to the event next year. Should consider allowing the volunteers to play the course annually as a reward for their time. Just an idea.

Classic Ross Design with Pristine Conditions

This course is an absolutely fantastic Ross design. the strategy is evident from every tee shot as bunkers are properly placed in the landing area that is accessible from each player from every tee. Greens are classic Ross style: small, heavily contoured and raised. A missed green is punished with difficult pitches and chips over collars. As a top private in the Metro Detroit area, excellent conditions and hospitality are to be expected, and DGC hits the mark there. Truly a layout that has stood the test of time and requires strategy for even the best of players
