Remembering Hillcrest Country Club
Long-time residents of the greater Mount Clemens area have many memories of the now-vanished Hillcrest Golf and Country Club. Hillcrest was the place for golf tournaments, wedding receptions, high school proms, and many other social occasions over more than five decades. We'll be taking a fond look back at Hillcrest on Wednesday, October 15, when Ross Strevel will present "The History of Hillcrest Golf and Country Club" as the next installment in our ongoing local history lecture series co-sponsored with the Macomb County Historical Society. The free program will take place at 7:00 p.m. in the library auditorium, and will feature some historic photos of Hillcrest. Mr. Strevel's family once owned the property upon which the Hillcrest subdivision and Hillcrest Golf and Country Club were built. Please join us for this look back at a Macomb County institution!
