Since its founding in 1911, the Grosse Pointe Hunt Club has steadfastly remained an intimate, exclusive and comfortable family-oriented club. The founders were enthusiastic horsemen; Colonel Fred M. Alger, Captain Burns Henry, George Lothrop, Elliott S. Nichols, Wesson Seyburn and others whose names are woven into the fabric of Detroit's history. Each member loved and understood horses, and each was eager to see riding become an important part of their children's and grandchildren's lives. Today, their vision remains the centerpiece of the Grosse Pointe Hunt Club's mission; an intimate, exclusive and comfortable environment for our members and their families to enjoy. Our programs have expanded to include year-round equestrian and tennis instruction and competition, outstanding summer swimming programs and top quality dining, catering and banquet opportunities. What really sets us apart, however, is the friendliness and hospitality of our members and staff. That is why we call the Grosse Pointe Hunt Club the "family resort in the Pointes".
