The Williamsburg, Mich. club closed in 2008 due to financial issues, but the Tom Doak-design is being rebuilt by Rod Trump. “Our goal is very simple … we want to make High Pointe the high point of golf,” Trump says. They are expecting to have between eight and 12 holes opened by June 2024.
High Pointe Golf Club in Williamsburg, Mich. garnered national acclaim in the late 1980s and early ’90s but closed in 2008 due to financial issues, WWUP reported. Now, 15 years later, the property is slowly being brought back to life, as crews broke ground last month.
While the Tom Doak-designed course will look a little different, the founder of High Pointe Golf Club, Rod Trump, said some things will look just as it did before it closed down. He told WWUP they are bringing back six of the original holes.
Trump said he’s excited to bring back such a historical course to Northern Michigan, WWUP reported.
“The land here is incredible. One of the ingredients to building a truly great golf course is you need a sandy site, and we have that, and we have rolling hills. So, the land has natural movement,” Trump says. “Our goal is very simple … we want to make High Pointe the high point of golf.”
They are expecting to have between eight and 12 holes opened by June 2024, with the remainder of the course opening later that summer, WWUP reported.
