Venue for the PGA Championships in 1947, the course at Plum Hollow Country Club was originally set out in 1921 by C. H. Alison. The Rouge River running through the property affects all but a couple of holes.
"Based out of an office in Detroit, Hugh Alison was a busy man in the Midwest in the early 1920s," wrote Tom Doak in The Confidential Guide to Golf Courses. "The terrain here is a bit similar to Inverness in Toledo, with a series of deep swales running across the course. There is a difficult set of short holes, but the par-4 13th is the one you'd most like to take home."
