Michigan Golfer ON-LINE - Nicklaus Toughens TPC Michigan - by Jack Berry [cached]
The transformation from dumping ground to a golf community where some of Ford Motor's highest executives reside, has been amazing and a tribute to Wayne Doran, the head of Ford Motor Land Development Co., and former Ford chairman Red Poling, both ardent golfers.

"We have 61 residential lots and only seven are left," said Wayne Doran, the head of Ford Motor Land Development Corp. and a Ford vice president. "One Ford executive came out and looked at a lot and three months later said he was ready to go ahead with buying and building. I told him `There's a house under construction on that lot right now.'
"You can't wait," said Doran, the man who convinced then Ford Chairman Red Poling to build TPC Michigan.
"Red asked me 'Do you think this is going to work?'," Doran said.

"He grew up in a small community and he later returned to Germany to marry his wife Wally (Waltraud)... but he really symbolizes the American dream," said his close, longtime friend, Wayne Doran, the former chairman of the Ford Motor Land Development Corp.
Prechter felt that Detroit's downriver region was at a crossroads, where it could continue to improve or decline, according to Doran.
And during his more than 30 here, Prechter kept in contact with business friends such as Doran, who now serves as chairman of the Detroit Metropolitan Airport Development Commission.
"I first met him when Henry Ford II asked Heinz and I to go to a Detroit Lion's football game (in 1969 or 1970)," recalled Doran.
"He and I used to play racquetball at 6 a.m. at the Fairlane Club (in nearby Dearborn)," Doran said. "He was so competitive that it used to bother him that I was a better player than him."
Although generally aware that Prechter suffered from clinical depression, Doran said that his friend never talked about it.
The news of Prechter's apparent suicide shocked Doran.
"He showed me the plans and talked about the raw materials to be used. it really turned out to be a class job," Doran said.
Prechter also saw Detroit Metropolitan Airport as an under utilized engine to improve the state's economy, according to Doran, who chairs a committee looking into developing land around the airport.
