In 1917, famed golf-course architect Donald Ross carved New Rogell Golf Course out of an urban plot along Grand River Avenue, adding yet another gem to a portfolio of courses that also includes Pinehurst No. 2 and Oakland Hills. Today, players enjoy the fruits of Mr. Ross’s labor as they cruise over a bentgrass path that stretches to 6,075 yards from the farthest tees. Two additional tee boxes start off each hole as well, allowing golfers to tailor rounds to their skill level or forsake tees completely and start in a bunker.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 70 course
  • Total length of 6,075 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 70.2 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 129 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole

The Hub’s mechanics-in-training (MIT) program teaches high-school-age youth the fundamentals of bicycle maintenance and customer service as part of an apprenticeship. In addition to gaining practical employment experience, MITs develop social and leadership skills by assisting The Hub's educational staff in training children how to repair bikes during the summer Youth Earn-a-Bike program. Young people also receive a small stipend during their tenure as apprentice mechanics. With additional aid, The Hub can support one of their mechanics-in-training for another month beyond the initial summer apprenticeship.

The "Architecture" tour, held on Saturday, May 8, is led by architect Brian Hurttienne, who will guide the group through downtown Detroit to explore the relationship between architecture and urban planning, with discussions on famous buildings and the future of Detroit's architecture. Strap on your American-flag shower cap and your freedom flippers for the "Arsenal of Democracy" tour on Saturday, July 3, which examines Detroit's patriotic contributions during World War II with visits to auto factories that were used to assemble weapons for American troops.

Golf and curling are similar in their basic values: both games require a steady hand, have their own distinct vernacular, and emphasize sportsmanship so much that the post-match handshake is a universal ritual. Roseland Golf and Curling Club brings the two genteel games together in one facility that features a six-sheet curling rink and a 27-hole golf complex. Open November through March, the curling club offers free “Learn to Curl” classes at various points throughout the season, leagues for curlers of all ages and abilities, and open ice sheet rentals all day on Saturdays for those looking for a place to stash their perishable snacks.

Outside, golfers can test par-hunting skills at an 18-hole, par 72 course designed by Donald Ross and built in 1926. The layout measures a formidable 6,943 yards from the farthest tees, requiring golfers to call upon every club or oversized crowbar in their bag to complete the round. In addition, the facility offers shorter, short game-oriented rounds in the form of a 9-hole, par-3 course.

At The Dance Studio at Absolute Fitness, students can learn to express themselves through movement and get fit at the same time. The studio offers ballet, hip hop, and jazz classes for kids and an adult ballet class for dancers of all abilities. Ballet classes use a technique derived from Kirov Ballet artistic director Agrippina Vaganova. In each class, students stretch, condition their muscles, and learn musicality and classic techniques. In other sessions, students build on a solid foundation of jazz dance to learn hip hop choreography. Occasionally, guest instructors drop by to teach other forms of movement such as Pilates, yoga, and intermediate blinking.

The dance studio is set within a fully equipped fitness centre boasting a salt-water swimming pool, a cardio room with treadmills and elliptical trainers, a weight room, and an onsite spa.
