An Authentic Scottish Links Golf Club - Established 1910

Gowanie Golf Club  is a 18-hole private golf club located near Lake St. Clair offering recreational and social enjoyment for members by maintaining the highest quality standards possible.  Originally named Riverview Golf Club by founder Thomas Shoemaker in 1910, our club was a charter member of the Detroit District Golf Association - now known as the Golf Association of Michigan.

The 1920's brought Dave Millar, born in Arbroath on Scotland's North Sea Coast, less than 10 miles from the famed Carnoustie Championship Links.  He became the golf professional and renamed it Gowanie (pronounced GOW-nee) which roughly translated means "field of daisies."

In the late 1930's the course was purchased by the late Ross Axford who owned a golf course construction company that built many courses around the country for Robert Trent Jones.

Today as in past years Gowanie continues the tradition of hosting golf events such as US Open Qualifiers that brought in professional tour stars like Mike Souchak and Ted Kroll.  Today Gowanie continueally hosts Golf Association of Michigan State Amateur Qualifiers and Net Team events.

Gowanie Golf Club continues its rich history being one of the oldest private clubs in the district.  Its 18 holes total 6414 yards from the tips with a course rating of 71.4 that will present a challenge to golfers of every skill level.  Four sets of tees are available to accommodate beginner to scratch golfers.

Gowanie is a golfer's club, no pool or tennis courts, just people who love golf.  The course is tight and demands accuracy.  Complemented with a comfortable clubhouse with wonderful staff, great food, and a friendly family-oriented membership.  Easily accessible from all points of the Metropolitan area.
