The 27 hole golf course, once flat and overgrown, has blossomed into a well manicured and challenging track. With raised tee boxes, newly defined fairways, new approaches and collars, additional sand traps, smooth greens and a state-of- the- art irrigation system, the course has been reborn. Sunnybrook's Golf leagues, open play and outings, have grown considerably as the course has grown into shape.
The 58-lane bowling center underwent many changes designed to update the old facility and bring it back to life. All new state-of-the-art Qubica scoring systems and beautiful BACK-LIT masking units, and new elevated stadium-like seating make it conducive to view tournaments and outings. The new state-of-the-art automatic bumper system has become popular with families and group outings because when a child is up, the bumper automatically rises in front of each gutter and when an adult is up, the bumpers automatically lower. This feature allows families and groups made up of various ages to enjoy bowling together on the same lane. The new ceiling tiles, air filtration system, four (4) new 12.5 X 12.5 projection big screen TV system over the lanes, and clean, renovated touch-free restrooms are features that have contributed in keeping our facility packed with league bowlers, open bowlers, bowling fundraisers, local, state & national tournaments (large & small), bowling parties and bowling outings.
Sunnybrook hosted the 2003 Professional Women’s Bowling Association which was the biggest tournament on the PWBA circuit. We also held the 2004 & 2005 Senior PBA U.S. Opens. The first ever Michigan High School Athletic Association State Bowling Championships were held in 2004, they returned in 2005 and are set to return in March 2006. State of Michigan and the National Knights of Columbus Tournaments, National Elks Tournaments, Yearly PBA regional tournaments, Special Olympics and many other charitable fundraisers are held at Sunnybrook as well as High School meets, Alro Steel/Michigan Junior Masters Association, and YABA City Tournaments.
Our comfortable guest rooms in the motel also have been completely renovated. Each room was furnished with new carpeting, new bedding, new bathroom fixtures, new televisions and new furniture. We offer on-site laundry services, fax services, lighted parking, and security cameras throughout for added comfort and security. The motel is connected to the bowling center so you never have to leave the building to eat, drink or simply enjoy yourself.
Banquet / Meeting Facility
Our Banquet / Meeting Facility underwent a major renovation as well. We installed new plush carpeting, new chandeliers, a new bar facility, new wall dressings, a new large screen projection TV with computer and DVD hook-ups, and a new portable dance floor that can be requested for any occasion. The Banquet facility can accommodate parties of 20 to 300 people and, for your viewing enjoyment, comes with a great Golf Course view. Of course we also offer full Catering services and party coordinators for any function.
Sunnybrook’s Center Ice Sports Lounge offers an expanded bar area with more comfortable seating, a large lounge area with high top tables & chairs, new lights, new coolers, 14 large TV’s for easy viewing from anywhere in the lounge, Golden Tee Golf, Darts, Pool Tables, Mega Touch video, sports memorabilia and food and drink specials every night.
“Our goal was to make Sunnybrook like it was in the old days – a destination for travelers and local people to enjoy a complete recreation, lodging and banquet/business facility. Our major renovations have been accomplished. We get up early and go to bed late here at Sunnybrook to ensure that our goals continue to be met and that we keep improving all facets of the business.”
“We want to thank all of our loyal customers for their patronage, TCF Bank for being such a great financial partner through our renovation process, and to our great customer orientated and dedicated staff that carries on our Sunnybrook philosophy day after day.”
