Oakland Hills is gunning to land another major, and perhaps more.
The Bloomfield Hills country club will perform a renovation of the south course beginning in Fall 2019, and will reopen in Spring 2021. Members passed a vote this week to finalize the plan.
The goal for Oakland Hills is to become a regular player for major golf. The USGA strongly suggested a course renovation would help land a US Open.
Membership previously voted on a renovation in 2016, but it did not pass. Oakland Hills is one of the country’s most historic courses and has not hosted a professional major since the 2008 PGA Championship.
It also hosted a Ryder Cup in 2004.
