Grand Beach

The Village of Grand Beach, Michigan 49117

grand beach

The Village of Grand Beach is a resort community on Lake Michigan with a population of less than 150 year-round residents. Stately white gates have welcomed visitors to Grand Beach since the early 1900s and the community’s public golf course dates to 1911. Among the most famous visitors to Grand Beach are author Father Andrew Greeley and former Chicago Mayors Richard J. and Richard M. Daley, who have maintained vacation homes in the village for decades.

History

Unlike nearby Harbor Country communities, Grand Beach was solely founded as a resort community. A 600 acre shooting preserve as transformed into Grand Beach by the Grand Beach Company which brought 20 Sears and Roebuck cottages to the area in 1907. The community’s golf course dates to 1911 and was a huge attraction for Chicagoans who arrived three times a day on the Michigan Central Railroad. The current Grand Beach Inn was once the Pinewood Lodge and served as the training camp for James Braddock as he prepared for his prizefight with Joe Louis. Frank Lloyd Wright built homes in Grand Beach, but the village’s most famous architectural offering was the 175-room Golfmore Hotel. Opened in 1921, the Golfmore offered concerts, movies, and a huge, at least for the Midwest, ski jump located on a dune behind the hotel. The Golfmore was destroyed in 1939 by a spectacular fire that some claimed could be seen in Chicago.
