Tournament Overview

Detroit Golf Club plays proud host to the annual Horton Smith Invitational each Spring. The 72-hole stroke play event, founded in 1964 by Bill Michaels, began as an 18-hole invitational to honor the long time Detroit Golf Club Head Professional who had a rich playing career of his own (he was the last person to defeat Bobby Jones in competition prior to Jones' retirement in 1930)

In 1971, Detroit G.C. members Dennis Lenehan, Tom Chisholm and Phil Wigle received approval to merge the Michigan Medal Play and Horton Smith Invitational. This proved to solidify an immensely talented field of participants each year and thus, further perpetuated the memorial to Horton Smith and his golfing heritage. That heritage includes winning 32 events and being selected for five Ryder Cup teams (he was never defeated). Smith is best known as the winner of the inaugural Masters, then known as the Augusta National Invitational.

"There is no way to measure what Horton has done for golf." -- Bobby Jones
