What’s a better way to celebrate Father’s Day than with some golf? At the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest, the Ann Arbor Area’s premier golf resort, deserving dads and celebrating families will find an exquisite 18-hole golf course, delicious dining options, and more-than-comfortable overnight accommodations; perfect for a Father’s Day Weekend getaway.
Eagle Crest sits on a sprawling golf course in Ypsilanti, Mich., only a few minutes away from Ypsilanti’s bustling downtown and Depot Town areas, and only thirty minutes both downtown Ann Arbor and the Detroit Metro Airport. Featuring a three-tiered driving range, a golf shop, and an academy, Eagle Crest welcomes golfers of all skill levels. The course offers gorgeous views, with several holes overlooking Ford Lake. Recently, USA Today named Eagle Crest’s 16th hole as one of Detroit’s “Dream 18 - Most Memorable Holes,” and Eagle Crest has continually received four-star ratings from Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play.”
But the golf isn’t the only thing for Dad to do at Eagle Crest. Pick from three unique restaurants, all with delectable options. Enjoy grab-and-golf picks at the Eagle Crest Bar and Grille, known for their burgers, sandwiches, and wraps. After a full day in the on the course, dine at The View restaurant (offering beautiful vistas) or cheer on Dad’s favorite sports team on the jumbo flat screens. On Sunday, June 18 2017, Father’s Day Brunch will be served from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Held in the elegant Terrace Room, Dad will enjoy fresh seafood, delicious omelets, and a carving station.
To extend the celebration, settle in to one of the cozy rooms at the Marriott hotel located on-site. Indoor pools include a wave pool and hot tub, and the resort also offers a fitness center featuring a stunning view of the golf course. A walking and bike trail is nestled along the lake, and tennis courts are also available. Wind down in the evening by soaking up the last warm sunrays in the private sun lounge, then sit around the fire pit with Dad’s favorite drink from The View bar.
If golfing isn’t Dad’s only hobby, the Ann Arbor area boasts a plethora of other attractions also happening Father’s Day Weekend. Book a guided fishing trip with Schultz Outfitters or visit their shop for ideas on Dad’s next fishing vacation. Check out Camelot, a show about King Arthur, playing at the Encore Musical Theatre Company in Dexter, Mich., or head over to actor Jeff Daniels’ Purple Rose Theatre in Chelsea, Mich. to catch Harvey - a hilarious play about an imaginary rabbit. Several renowned musical artists will perform at the Ark over the weekend - including Amanda Anne Platt & The Honeycutters, Joe Jackson, and Robbie Fulks. If Dad is a reader, be sure to stop by the Ann Arbor Book Festival in downtown Ann Arbor, or if he loves Mexican food, consider Tacomania in Ypsilanti – or, sip on some suds and play board games at the Pointless Brewery and Theatre.
Whether Dad is into golf or fishing, or music or comedy shows, the Ann Arbor area has everything needed to create a Father’s Day full of good times and fun memories.
