Oakland Hills Country Club is a Donald Ross designed 36 hole, private club in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan established in 1916. The South Course is consistently ranked in the top 20 in Golf Digest and has hosted 17 major championships including the 2004 Ryder Cup and 6 U.S. Opens. Oakland Hills has contracted Gil Hanse to restore the famed South Course to the masterpiece that Donald Ross created. Restoration work will commence in the fall of 2019 with irrigation, drainage and tree removal to start and golf course construction to begin in April of 2020. This work would include 3D scanning of all greens to return them to their original specs and then renovating all greens to USGA specifications with the potential of the installation of sub surface aeration systems. This restoration will also include all new bunkers with Billy Bunker construction, tee’s, fairways, irrigation, drainage, tree removal and re-grassing to all new and improved bent grass varieties.
