at the Dearborn Country Club

It was a gift for his hometown.
Henry Ford developed an 18-hole golf course at Outer Drive and Military Street that opened in 1925. With the course designed by Donald Ross and the clubhouse designed by architect Albert Kahn, Ford wanted to put Dearborn on par with affluent enclaves like "The Pointes" and "The Hills." But he wanted the golf course open to everyone.

The clubhouse was used for Ford family parties and dinners until it was purchased by the members in 1952 to become a private club.

You Auto Know
Henry and Clara Ford forbade the sale or consumption of alcohol or tobacco on the premises of "The Club."
