Grand Hotel – Fall Michigan Golf Live Package – September 7 – 9, 2018


Tee up the vacation of a lifetime during our Michigan Golf Live Package named for radio and television show host Bill Hobson of Michigan Golf Live, the state’s leading golf program. Host Bill Hobson coordinates this golf event complete with three days of unlimited golf on The Jewel, prize giveaways, private evening receptions, Saturday morning golf scramble and box lunch.

The Jewel golf course was designed by architect Jerry Matthews and is ranked as a top northern U.S. golf resort by Conde Nast Traveler. It provides unforgettable views of the Straits of Mackinac, the Mackinac Bridge and the seasonal beauty of Mackinac Island.

This package is also available June 17 – 19, 2018. More Info >>

Meet Michigan Golf Live Host Bill Hobson:
Bill Hobson

In 1999, Michigan Golf Live (MGL) host Bill Hobson had the unusual dream of bringing entertaining golf talk to the radio. In its early days, the result of that dream was a weekly 1-hour radio show that has grown into one of the nation’s leading programs dedicated to celebrating the game and the special places it can be played.

Now in its 17th season, MGL Radio is carried statewide every Saturday morning, while MGL-TV can be seen on FOX Sports Detroit each weekend at 9:30 a.m.

The MGL/Grand Hotel partnership gave birth to the Grand Golf Getaway, hosted by Bill and attended by Grand Hotel guests in both June and again in September. We hope you’ll come be part of the fun, friends, and memories of this very special time at Grand Hotel!
