Bloomfield Hills was farmland when wealthy Detroit socialites bought the land and began developing it at the beginning of the 20th century.

Recently, a Bloomfield Hills man is suing his former employee, Winston Golf and Manufacturing, for wrongful termination. Patrick Ronayne claims he was fired because he was not thin enough for his $75,000 per year job, saying management told him he was not a “flat belly.” Winston claims the allegations are ridiculous and that Ronayne, who seeks more than $25,000 in compensation, was fired because of his poor sales performance.
