Officially opened in 1927, the course at Portland Country Club has delighted golfers of all ages and skill levels for more than eight decades. The winding 5,558-yard layout of delicate fairways and manicured greens charms players, who marvel at the mature trees and immature sand traps that line the 84-year-old course. The greens regularly play host to the Michigan Players Junior Golf Tour and the club's annual Best Ball Tournament. Originally a farmhouse, the clubhouse at Portland Country Club has been remodeled and expanded to house a bar and grill that nourishes players before or after rounds with traditional American fare. The menu of portable classics fills the void where hunger thrives with tasty edibles such as buffalo wings ($6), hot dogs ($3), the grilled chicken burger ($5.75), and the chicken-tender basket ($5.75).
Portland Country Club
First opened in 1927, Portland Country Club's 18-hole course sprawls across 100 acres of rolling countryside terrain stitched by mature trees. The winding 5,558-yard layout challenges duffers with imposing tree lines and sand traps kissed against fairways and greens. Portland Country Club regularly hosts the Michigan Players Junior Golf Tour as well as its annual Best Ball Tournament, which has been played for 54 consecutive years. The club still retains the grounds' original farmhouse, now expanded and renovated into a clubhouse to serve as a testament to its humble beginnings and a quick reference for any Herbert Hoover–related trivia.
