Fore!



Does anyone recognize this golf course? A clue is that the course may have been located in Michigan. The photo is from the 1930's.

Thanks to MikeM for identifying the golf course as the Country Club of Detroit located in Grosse Pointe Farms, Michigan. The golf course was started in 1897. If you would like to learn more about the Country Club Of Detroit, please click here.

That is the Country Club of Detroit. The house in the background is on Provencal Road, about the fourth or fifth house west of Kercheval.

Yor're welcome. There are two or three homes along Provencal similar in appearance. One of them, might be this one, is where Henry Ford II moved to when he sold his lakeside estate. I think Iacocca lived there later, after Ford moved or died.

Hi Mike,

I believe the house in photo is this one:

The house you are speaking of looks similar and is about 4 houses further up the street at 160 Provencal.
