Golf and Architecture
I've mentioned it before and it means a lot to me to be proud of where I'm from. There are so many great buildings, rich in tradition and design. Oakland Hills Country Club is in Bloomfield Township, MI. Not only one of the most prestigious golf courses but also a historic structure. It was modeled after George Washington's Mount Vernon with it's Georgian style architecture. It's the second largest wooden structure in the state, second only to the Grand Hotel. It also boasts the second largest covered porch in state at 75 yards, again right behind the Grand. The building underwent an extensive renovation in 2000 and this is how she stands today.
