On Mother’s Day, giving mom a day to relax is a perfect gift; celebrating with great food and plenty of company only adds to the enjoyment. On Sunday, Sand Creek Country Club in Chesterton hosted their annual Mother’s Day Brunch. The event included a full buffet for those in attendance, as well as plenty of good conversation and a relaxing atmosphere for every mother on her special day.
The event has been hosted every year since Sand Creek opened its doors in 1976. Considered a tradition, the event has grown in size and scope over the past couple of decades as families look forward to a day full of quality family time and delicious food.
“It’s grown in both the amount of food offered and the number of people attending, said Amy Cushway, Director of Food and Beverage for Sand Creek Country Club. “We now offer a chef attended omelette station, a carving station, and an elaborate dessert buffet.”
As members arrived, they were greeted by staff and led to their tables in various rooms of the Clubhouse. Once their drink orders were taken, everyone was free to fill their plates at the generous buffet. Families ranged in size, some having only a few people, and others having multiple generations present. No matter the size, though, every table was full of stories, smiles, and plenty of laughter.
“I love coming here to spend time with family and just enjoy the wonderful food they provide and the courteous service,” said Beth LeBlanc.
LeBlanc attends numerous events throughout the year at Sand Creek and enjoys every one. The annual Mother’s Day Brunch is a chance for her to spend time with not only her own mother, but also her 3 grandchildren, the youngest of which is only a few months old.
“Sand Creek is very relaxed and nice,” LeBlanc commented. “It’s always a lot of fun.”
Guests in attendance enjoyed the service and atmosphere provided to them. The experience is what keeps some guests coming back.
“We’ve come to brunch here before,” said Lisa Allers, whose sister is a member and invited her to attend. “The atmosphere is great, the food is excellent, and it’s just a lovely place.”
After their meal, each mother was presented with a rose and wished a Happy Mother’s Day by their server. Many families took advantage of the beautiful weather and chose to take a walk outside along the patio where they were provided a gorgeous view of the sunlit golf course.
Members look forward to the many family focused events at Sand Creek each year, events that keep members and their families engaged, relaxed, and enjoying themselves.
“We do a lot of events throughout the year and it creates a sense of community,” Cushway said. “We want everyone to know that this is a great place to be and we’re here to make sure they’re happy.”
