Where2Golf says: 

Oakland Hills Country Club, located in the outer suburbs of Detroit, is home to two championship layouts, the North and South courses. The South Course is widely recognised as a golf course that ranks alongside the world's best. This is one of the USA's most admired tree-lined and open parkland layouts, with an outstanding array of excellently crafted and challenging holes. Golf courses don't get any better than this. However, Oakland Hills is a private club, with its courses generally playable only by members and their guests.
