At about 10 a.m., flames licked the roof of the private clubhouse as black smoke billowed. The fire quickly spread, engulfing much of the wooden structure. Eventually, the roof collapsed, with one fire official calling it “almost a total loss.”
For Michiganders, the devastation is significant. Oakland Hills is more than a posh private club for summer fun. It represents the aspirations of generations of Michiganders. It holds a place among some of America’s greatest golf courses.
