Local news reports say a call was placed to the Bloomfield Township Fire Department around 10 a.m., with the roof collapsing at 11 a.m.
Assisting the team from Bloomfield were firefighters from several local towns, including Farmington Hills, Rochester Hills, Southfield, Madison Heights, Waterford, and Franklin.
Located in Bloomfield Township, Michigan, Oakland Hills has played host to nine major championships, including six U.S. Opens and three PGA Championships. It also hosted the 2004 Ryder Cup matches. The club is home to a pair of historic Donald Ross-designed courses (North and South).
