West Bloomfield Township in Oakland County, Michigan — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
In Good Company
at Pine Lake Country Club
The sparkling lake has been a gift to the generations
Pine Lake Country Club began as a treasured rustic destination for Automobile Club of Detroit road tours in the early 1900s. By 1910, the clubhouse on Pine Lake had become a scenic refuge for members that included automotive pioneers and leaders of government and industry. Families joined for fresh air and recreation, swimming and boating. Sailing regattas on the lake grew to be as popular as road tours. The club changed its name to Pine Lake Country Club in 1921 and, on added property, opened an 18-hole golf course in 1924.
