Michigan is renowned for a number of things: lakes, the American automotive industry, public golf, and Motown. The lattermost of these things is the only one which cannot be found at Black Lake Golf Club (on an average day, at least). The public-access facility is owned and operated by the United Auto Workers union, and of course sits very near to the title lake (those who wish to drive a bit farther can find Lake Huron nearby).

Rees Jones is the architect on record, and his role came down to finding a route through the beautiful forests in the northern reaches of the state, and occasionally plopping down an impressive sand hazard to complement that route. The most obvious will be at No. 14, a 235-yard par three that features a singular sand hazard that stretches almost the entirety of the hole.

The title lake is actually a touch north of the club, however players will combat smaller bodies of water as they approach several greens. Nos. 6 and 10, a par four and par five respectively, feature fairways that arch around a beckoning pond for those who get a little too aggressive when coming for the green.
