Welcome to Detroit Golf
Exclusive, private, and secure, yet close to Detroit’s center
Centrally-located alongside Woodward Avenue lies the exclusive and private neighborhood of Detroit Golf. This subdivision offers an unexpected balance between the best of both worlds. Residents enjoy all of the benefits of private club memberships and views of the golf course from most homes while remaining minutes away from more busy and quirky parts of town, like the Livernois commercial district.
Detroit Golf is home to one of the metropolitan area’s most private and secretive streets, Hamilton Road. A guarded drive gives lucky homeowners on this road the utmost levels of privacy and security. For this reason, homes here do not come available often. While some estates mix traditional and contemporary styles, many exude long-standing, old-fashioned elegance, reminiscent of styles simply not seen in modern times.
What to Love
The classic architecture of these stately manors gives an old-world feel of classic luxury.
Detroit Golf is one of Detroit's most secure neighborhoods.
Often thought of as a “who's who” of Detroit. Property demand is high, supply is low, and homes tend to maintain their value over time.
Detroit Golf is located less than 10 miles away from downtown and just blocks away from other lively districts.
Those residing in Detroit Golf take comfort in knowing they are close to downtown and all of the bustling events of inner-city life while having a quiet refuge to retreat to at day's end. In addition to the golf course, residents can take advantage of the 296-acre Palmer Park
. The park offers various greenspaces, tennis courts, and hiking and walking trails and hosts the Palmer Park Art Fair
, an annual event dating back to the 1970s.
Dining, Entertainment, & Shopping
Detroit Golf is 10 miles from downtown, blocks from the popular and historic Livernois district, and close to shops and eateries on Nine Mile Road in Ferndale. This perfect location makes it effortless to get out of the house without having to drive too far out.
One closeby favorite is Good Cakes and Bakes
, located on Livernois Avenue. Featured on “The Today Show,” Food Network, and more, Good Cakes and Bakes specializes in quick breakfast classics and moist cakes, and they also offer several vegan and gluten-free versions. The owner, April Anderson, has been baking since she was nine years old and has more than perfected her craft. One of the best patios in Detroit is also located nearby at La Dolce Vita
. With live entertainment at their weekend brunch, other top choices during the week consist of the chef's lamb chop, escargot, and bruschetta.
Nights out can be celebrated at one of the nearby lounges or bars. Bakers Keyboard Lounge
is the oldest jazz club in the world, having been open since 1934. This intimate environment serves up soul food paired with specialty cocktails named after many of the legends of jazz. Motor City Brewing Works
features a seasonal rotation of craft beers, both local and of their own creation. Brick oven pizzas, pretzels, and other pub favorites are made by sourcing the freshest locally available ingredients within Michigan. The original location has been in business for almost 30 years, while the new location on Livernois Avenue opened in Summer 2021.
In addition to the many eateries and shops down on Livernois Avenue, Detroit Golf is also very close to Ferndale. Ferndale’s downtown district along Nine Mile Road has been named one of the Best Streets in America and frequently holds fairs and festivals with live music, shopping, and street food.
Things To Do
Founded in 1899, the Detroit Golf Club
features two 18-hole golf courses designed by Donald Ross, an architectural legend behind many of America's greatest golf courses. These greens were designed to challenge and free the golfers’ minds. With the addition of the clubhouse in 1916, club members have access to three dining venues, a large swimming pool, a fully-equipped fitness center, and outdoor tennis courts. Their patio is also available for al fresco lunch and dinner, with views of the golf courses and putting green.
