Golfing in Central Michigan

Blog Post By: Jon Conklin, PGA Head Professional & Director of Operations

Today, I would like to talk about what makes Central Michigan an ideal place for a getaway vacation. In addition to our award-winning golf courseMt. Pleasant has many other great things to offer a variety of people who visit the area. A few of theses attractions include Central Michigan University and Soaring Eagle Casino & Resort. These establishments have helped make Mt. Pleasant a "must-stop" for many individuals. Whether it's a family visiting their child at CMU or a guy's weekend at the casino, these venues have undoubtedly produced an influx of travel into the area. And while these individuals are visiting the area, we have seen an increase in the number of people looking to add a little something extra to their trip by playing a round of golf. 

In addition to these venues, Mt. Pleasant is also an ideal getaway due to its centralized location in the state. If you think about it, when planning a group vacation, someone will often have to travel out of their way based on where they reside. For example, I have many golf groups who have friends traveling from both Kalamazoo and Detroit. Mt. Pleasant is the ideal destination for those individuals, as everyone can get to the area in the same amount of time, due to the many highways which connect to the Central Michigan area.


But, what if your group still wants to travel up north?  No problem. With Bucks Run's and Mt. Pleasant's centralized-location, you can easily visit the area and the golf course on your way north or way home. Over the years, I have seen many people do this to break-up the day of driving or to add a little something extra to their trip.  Pretty much you can have your cake and eat it too at Bucks Run and Mt. Pleasant!

Play and Stay Golf Packages are also available for groups of 4 or more golfers.  Bucks Run partners with 10 area golf courses and 6 lodging establishments. All golf courses and lodging providers are independently operated, which means our whole community wins because multiple local businesses will be receiving your dollars spent during your trip. A complete list of these courses and lodging establishments can be found by clicking HERE. If interested, you can request a free Play & Stay Package quote by clicking HERE.

As always, have a great week and we look forward to seeing you on the course and in Mt. Pleasant soon.
