Detroit Country Club Turns 100 the Summer of 2016!
             

The Summer of 2016 will bring the 100th Anniversary of the Detroit Country Club. We will be planning many special events to celebrate this wonderful event. Please stay in touch and plan to attend via the DCC newsletter, your spring letter from the DCC Board and the Men's and Women's Presidents, as well as the Detroit Lakes Tribune Newspaper. We also need help from you for the following...
                        
We are looking for DCC memorabilia from the community, Pine to Palm golfers, members and former members. Do you have golf items, pictures, flyers, score cards and anything else you may find in your attic, cottage, photo albums, etc.? We hope to turn out an impressive display of the history of these past 100 years. We will return all items to the owners, unless you indicate otherwise. Anything that would be interesting to the golfers and the community of Detroit Lakes will be welcomed. Anything we are able to scan, we will do so, such as newspaper articles, pictures, flyers, posters, etc. so that we will have a copy for future generations and the originals can be sent back to you.

                          

We are also hoping people will write down and send us memories they have from the Club. Examples may include caddying at the DCC as a youth, junior golf, working at the Pine to Palm, participating on the DLMS/DLHS golf teams, Men's and Women's league experiences, stories about the clubhouse old and new, the Pizza Master's, family golfing history at the DCC, interviews with former players, professionals and many more memories would be most welcome.
                   
Please do share and help us in making this celebration truly memorable. If you have anything to share, questions to ask or anything else please contact: Vicki Johnson 701-412-7384 vjohnson@detlakes.k12.mn.us,  Randy Burnside 218-234-6088 rburnside@arvig.net. 
                  
We plan to document everything and include it in a keepsake booklet for the 100th Anniversary of Detroit Country Club. This will be available for purchase. We will also be putting together a power point. 
                      
Thank you for all your help and support with this project. We look forward to the summer of 2016 and Detroit Country Club's 100th Anniversary. Be ready to Celebrate!
