Detailed description of Fox Hills Country Club, Golden Fox

Fox Hills Country Club is a 63-hole daily fee public golf facility located in Plymouth, Michigan. The facility has the 27 hole Fox Classic Golf Course consisting of three 9-hole courses that can be played in 3 different 18-hole combinations. The three nines are known as the Hills, the Woodlands, and the Lakes. In addition to the Fox Classic 27-hole Course, there is the Golden Fox Course and the Strategic Fox Course.

The facility had its beginnings in 1927 as a private country club. Wilfried Reid, a well-known golf course architect was said to have designed the original 18 hole course then known as the Plymouth Country Club for $50 and a bottle of spirits; a pretty hefty fee during the Prohibition days. The Plymouth Country Club continued to operate as a private club and in 1958 changed its name to Fox Hills Country Club. By the late 1960's Fox Hills had fallen into a state of disrepair and lost members.

In 1974, the club changed ownership, improvements were made and growing demand for golf prompted the addition of another 9 holes in 1983. This new 9 was designed by Jim Lipe making Fox Hills into a 27-hole complex.

In 1989 the complex opened a new 18-hole championship course, the Golden Fox. Designed by Arthur Hills, the Golden Fox immediately impressed golfers with its sporty design. Golf Digest described the Golden Fox as a "design with a Scottish flair, undulating greens and steep bunkers." The addition of Golden Fox now made Fox Hills a 45 hole facility.

In 2001, another course was built to add variety and interest to an already large golf complex. Ray Hearn designed the championship par-three course, named the Strategic Fox. A great course for beginners because of its shorter length, the course also offers the more advanced player a true challenge. The Strategic Fox has become a popular course for families since it offers fun and challenge for people of all ages.

With the edition of Strategic Fox, Fox Hills now has a total of 63 holes of golf making it the largest single golf facility in Southeastern Michigan.
