Established in 2008, the Grosse Pointe Woods Foundation is an independent, all-volunteer organization focused on projects to enhance our community for the benefit of residents, visitors, and businesses.

The grand opening of the Kevin J. Zmyslowski III (Tripp) Memorial Course took place on August 3, 2019. The Foundation officially gifted the 9-hole course to the city, and it is now open for play!

The city elected to charge $2 per game to play, with a “membership” package of eight games for $10.

Peters Funeral Home, Peter and Lisa Ahee, Edmund T. Ahee Jewelers, Mike and Lisa Fuller, Kevin and Barbara Hendrick, Douglas and Margaret Rahaim, and The Original Pancake House of Grosse Pointe.
