Blythefield Country Club shares top statewide honor


A venerable Rockford-area landmark has been selected as one of the top five sites to host a wedding statewide.

InFrame Bride magazine bestowed the award upon Blythefield Country Club in its premiere issue, launched earlier this fall.

The magazine lauded the club for its “tranquil whispering of the Rogue River and gentle rustling of lush trees over sweeping vistas of green” and how the site provides a “surreal and enchanting backdrop to those most momentous steps down the aisle.”

“We’re very honored,” said Club Manager Patti Butcher, “but hardly shocked, since we’ve long been sharing with friends and neighbors that Blythefield is one of the best-kept secrets when it comes not only to weddings, but all sorts of events.”

Butcher noted that Blythefield also was recently recognized for “Best Appetizer” and “Best Presentation” at the 11th Annual Taste of the Chamber hosted by the Grand Rapids Chamber of Commerce.

“We’ve worked very hard to earn the respect of our members and their guests,” said Butcher, “and that extends to everything we do—from the golf course to our superb dining to the outings which we’re proud to host all year long.”

InFrame Magazine is a new publication that showcases high-end photographers, videographers and wedding vendors throughout Michigan.

Blythefield Country Club, which has been proudly serving the West Michigan community for 80 years, is nationally ranked and respected for its challenging course, gorgeous views and top-notch food and event services.
