What’s Happening in Northern Michigan: Free Golf Weekend, Easter Activities

We’ve flipped the calendar to April, and that means spring is here!

There’s always plenty do in Northern Michigan to celebrate springtime.

Courtney Sheffer from the West Michigan Tourist Association has some suggestions in this week’s What’s Happening in Northern Michigan.

Free Golf Weekend

Kick off this year’s golf season with a weekend of free golf in Gaylord!

Their annual Free Golf Weekend takes place April 26-28 this year.

The Gaylord Golf Mecca has teamed up with area lodging properties to offer a free round of golf with cart to golfers who stay at a participating lodging property.

Find all the participating golf courses and lodging options from the Gaylord Golf Mecca website, and mention the Free Golf Weekend when you call to book your room.

Easter in Charlevoix 

Bring the whole family to Charlevoix on Saturday, April 20 for a full day of Easter activities.

Have lunch with the Easter bunny at Stafford’s Weathervane Restaurant, and get fueled up for the Easter egg hunt at 2 p.m.

The egg hunt takes place in East Park, and is free for kids up to ten years old.

There will be four different age groups hunting for 4,500 eggs, so bring your Easter basket and be ready to find lots of Easter eggs!

Easter Brunch

If you’re looking for somewhere to have Easter brunch, there’s no shortage of great options in the area.

Shanty Creek Resort’s Easter Brunch in Bellaire will feature prime rib, ham, breakfast options, and more.

Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville will serve an Easter buffet with carving stations, a waffle and omelet station, and a kids buffet.

Grand Traverse Resort & Spa just outside of Traverse City is offering brunch at their restaurant, with a whole weekend of family fun planned around the Easter holiday.
