Classic cars had been on the agenda for our first day in Michigan. We spent 12 hours eating, drinking, cruising (before drinking), and watching the procession of cars cruise Woodward Avenue during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise in the suburban Detroit area. One of the towns on the route is Birmingham and it just happens to have two 9-hole golf course. Couldn’t ask for a better pairing, right? Read more →

This clubhouse greets you as you enter the driveway. I feel good about this course.

“Wawenock” is the name of one of the bands or subgroups of the Penobscot tribe, located in what is now Maine. The name Wawenock means “round island” in the Penobscot language. I have to admit, every time I hear that name I think of Donald Penobscot from M*A*S*H. I’m not sure about the “island” part but there is plenty of water around this area. I do understand the “round” reference because Read more →

The Course at Pettys Park

Entrance to The Course at Petteys Park…aka Bunker Hill Country Club
