Birmingham Country Club

Birmingham, MI Private

Overview

Birmingham Country Club in the suburbs of northeast Detroit sits at the center of one of the country's great collections of historic courses. It's neighbors, all within blocks of the club, include the Donald Ross-designed Okland Hills, ranked 20th on America's 100 Greatest Courses, Bloomfield Hills, a 1913 Harry S. Colt design, Ross's Franklin Hills, and Charles Alison's (Colt's design partner) Tam O' Shanter. Detroit Golf Club, another Ross club with 36 holes, is just down the road. Birmingham's pedigree is impressive too: designed in 1916 by Tom Bendelow, the club hosted the 1953 PGA Championship, and in 2022 completed a multiyear renovation by Bruce Hepner that cleared trees, expanded greens and accentuated Bendelow's early 20th century architecture.
