Red Run Golf Club has maintained a tradition of excellence in competition, camaraderie and ambiance since its beginnings in 1914. Over the years, the club has benefited from its diverse membership, improving the quality of the facilities and strengthening the sportsmanship spirit. Good time to be had by all is of paramount importance to the philosophy of Red Run's members.
The main focus of attention is golf, and much has been done with improvements to the grounds and continually is, to maintain the standard of quality Red Run and its members expect. The club claims a myriad of good players on its membership list as well as participating in many tournaments and exhibition matches.
Red Run is host to the second oldest Invitational in Michigan, interrupted only three times by the PGA Tour events the club has hosted. These PGA tournaments were the Motor City Open in 1950 and 1951 and the Western Open in 1958. Among the many pros of the time who played at Red Run such as Byron Nelson and Bobby Locke, we've had visits by Chick Harbert, Al Watrous and Porky Oliver with a cameo appearance by Walter Hagen at President's Day honoring Harold Kelly in 1948.
Many members have started out as a caddy at Red Run and became involved in building the strong caddy program we have today. The installation of the Evans Scholarship program has given many caddies a four-year grant through college since it's first recipient from Red Run, Bob McMasters.
Reflective of the present, Red Run's history stands proud with many accomplishments. The club strives to uphold the traditions and values with each new year and new members.
