Estelle purchased merchandise for the pro shop while Alexander oversaw maintenance and improvements to the property. Their daughters, Sandy and Kathy began to assist in the running of the course as young women and quickly Fox Hills became a family business with strong values and love for the game of golf. As years passed, the golf course continued to grow and the Dul daughters, Sandy and Kathy, stepped in managerial roles at the course.
By 1983, Fox Hills had 45-minute waits for tee times and Sandy (Mily) begged her father to build her another nine holes and expand to another course. Alexander hired Jim Lipe, who had previously worked for Jack Nicklaus, to build and restructure the course to fit the additional holes. The Woods opened shortly after and the business of Fox Hills Golf Course began to grow and continue to thrive.
In 1986, after the passing of their father, Alexander Dul, the sisters took the reins of Fox Hills carrying on their fathers’ vision and legacy. The course continued to grow and business was booming, Sandy and Kathy added on the Golden Fox by 1989 and their vision of a “Private Country Club for the Public” was now a reality.
“Since the day my father purchased this course back in 1974 I have loved every minute of it. This has been not only a business for our family, but really a legacy that my parents started and now my sister and I get to carry on, build and grow our father’s vision. It’s amazing to see the changes and improvements we have made year after year, “says Owner Sandy Mily. “Forty years ago I would have never thought we’d be here looking at a beautiful facility that offers everything from golf lessons to programs, tournaments, fundraisers, weddings and now we’ve even added FootGolf!”
Throughout 2014 Fox Hills will be offering new specials and events honoring the 40th Anniversary including monthly giveaways, special discounts, new programs and more. Fox Hills will continue to bring new and innovative programs, technology and opportunities to the golf community in Michigan.
