The Perks of Fall Golf in Central Michigan

Blog Post By: Jon Conklin, General Manager & PGA Professional

The time has come. It is now FALL! This is a sad time of year for the golf course operators in our region because the season is coming to an end.  Even though the season is winding down, there is still plenty to look forward to on the golf course.

Discounted Fall Rates

It's no secret that once fall arrives, our rates drop. From now until October 6th, you can take advantage of our discounted fall rates, while still enjoying pristine course conditions. For 18 holes with a cart, you can play for as little as $65. After 3PM, rates drop to $50. During this time, our greens are not aerated either! Then, starting on October 7th, our rates drop even further to $50 for 18 holes and a cart. 

Fall Golf Weather

Let's start with the weather.  With one quick look at the 10 day forecast for Mt. Pleasant, we're seeing a few days of rain, but lots of cool, comfortable temps for playing. On top of that, the annoying summer humidity has left us, making your round much more comfortable.

Enjoyable Fall Colors

Not only is the weather great this time of year, but the pure beauty of the changing leaves is just around the corner. According to online fall color forecasts, our region will be in peak color during the week of the 12th of October. Tying back into our previous section about the weather, as long as the daylight hours, nighttime temperatures and water cooperate, we're anxious to see some great colors out on the course. 

Fall Golf Scrambles

With all that being said, our last golfing event for the season is coming up, known as The Big Buck Open. On Saturday, October 19th, this 4 person scramble will feature challenging playing conditions and unique tee placements. During this event, we will also have a few holes set-up with unique fall beverages and foods to sample. For more information on this fall golf scramble, please click here

Fall Dining at the Quarry Grill Restaurant

Our team is hopeful for another great fall at Bucks Run.  Even if you’re not a golfer, you can still visit us to get a look at our course's natural beauty.  From both the Quarry Grill Restaurant or our covered patio, you can enjoy a meal while basking in the fall colors and sunshine over Lake Fisher and the tree lined golf course.

And one last reminder; even though the golfing season is coming to an end, please keep in mind that our restaurant will remain open on Friday and Saturday evenings, and that we will continue to host private events, banquets and weddings throughout the winter months.

We hope to see you out on the golf course this fall! Enjoy your week!
