Bucks Run Golf Club Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Jun 23, 2020Bucks Run Admin

MT. PLEASANT, MI – Bucks Run Golf Club is excited to announce the celebration of its 20th Anniversary on July 1, 2020. To celebrate the milestone, the facility will be hosting a public 5-day celebration featuring golf rate specials, steak dinner specials, and raffles for golfers who visit during the anniversary event, on July 1-5, 2020.


Bucks Run Golf Club, which is a member of the family-owned group of construction companies, known as the Fisher Companies, got its start on the site of an old gravel mining operation. After the property had been mined and then sat vacant for most of the 1990’s, the decision was made to turn the sprawling land into a premier golf course. Avid fans of outdoor recreation, the three Fisher Brothers, Arthur J., James O., and Ralph J. Fisher, Jr., began construction on the course in 1999. It is believed that this was the last construction project the brothers collectively worked-on together.

The Jerry Matthew’s designed course is known for its 18 memorable holes, which are spread across natural wetlands, wooded areas, river frontage, and picturesque lakes. Bucks Run Golf Club also features an 18,000 square foot clubhouse, which houses The Quarry Grill Restaurant, a large banquet facility, and an award-winning golf shop. Through the years, the course has received numerous awards, including being one of Golf Digest’s Top 50 Golf Courses in the Nation.

“This marks an incredibly exciting time for Bucks Run, as we look back at our many successes and great memories over the past 20 years. Our first golfers hit the links on July 1, 2000, and it has been a privilege to serve the same faces – plus, many new ones – ever since that opening day” states Vice President, Jeff Sweet, who has been at Bucks Run Golf Club from the start.
