  2. The Country Club of Detroit is a HS Colt/CH Allison original design from 1912 that has played host to (2) US Amateur Championships, and will be hosting the 2020 US Senior Amateur Championship. The most recent architectural imprint on the property today is with Tom Doak & Renaissance Design, who completed a large scale renovation in 2010-2011 with complete reconstruction of all greens & tees, as well as regrassing of fairways & renovating bunkers. A large scale tree management program was initiated at this time as well. Their design has brought back many design parameters with a ground game golf course. There have been recent upgrades as well with green side bunker removals on 4 holes and the incorporation of 2+ acres of bentgrass bailouts for extended playability options. The Country Club of Detroit, or CCD as it is known to our membership & staff, sits northeast of Downtown Detroit in the vibrant, exclusive suburb of Grosse Pointe Farms. The Championship Course currently sits within the top 200 classical courses in America, per Golfweek. AIT's can expect to be a part of a staff of 30+ people during the peak summer months.

In this time CCD management will work in conjunction with AITs to place them in assistant positions at courses around the country within our network, or, if available, full time employment here at CCD.
