Vail Resorts is getting the recently-acquired Mt. Brighton, Michigan, ready for the summer by rebranding its golf course, formerly known as the Jackal Golf Club, as The Golf Club at Mt. Brighton.
This past ski season saw a variety of improvements at the resort, with a $10 million ivenstment project offering expanded snowmaking, new chairlifts, a new terrain park and new base area facilities.
“We felt it important to showcase Mt. Brighton itself as the dual-purpose ski/golf hill that sets the course apart from all other courses in southern Michigan,” said Larry Kuebler, director of golf for The Golf Club at Mt. Brighton. “The epic vistas and towering shots attained off the top of the ski hill truly make the Golf Club at Mt. Brighton a one-of-a-kind experience in this area.”
Vail also recently reopened the Bauery Restaurant as the Ore Creek Mountain Grill under the leadership of food and beverage director Cameron Cosby.
“Cameron was brought on to elevate the dining experience at Mt. Brighton year-round to lofty standards, including specially designed seasonal menus, new drink lineups including local Michigan microbrews, and a new addition of a call box on the 8th allows you to order food that will be waiting for you at Ore Creek Mountain Grill at the turn,” said Kuebler.
The Golf Course at Mt. Brighton will also begin offering live entertainment this summer. There are plans to hold a “Thursday Afternoon Club” with live music playing in Ore Creek Mountain Grill to allow golfers to stay after a round or non-golfers in the neighborhood to come in for some summertime fun out on the newly expanded patio and take in the views of the golf course/ski hill.
For events, Mt. Brighton can host up to 350 people at the newly renovated facilities at Ore Creek Mountain Grill or Ski Hill Grill and Bruhn’s Bar.
