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 firstname.lastname@example.org,
Randy Burnside 218-234-6088 email@example.com.
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
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!
