LAKEVIEW HILLS COUNTRY CLUB & RESORT ANNOUNCES MAJOR REBRANDING CAMPAIGN AND RENOVATION PLANS FOR 2023 Updates include new outdoor wedding options, a reimagined ballroom and prime steakhouse - plus total renovations to hotel guest rooms and junior suites
Tom Fabbri, President and CEO, along with his siblings Dennis Fabbri, Rick Fabbri and Sue Willis, have agreed to a substantial investment in improvements to transform Lakeview Hills Country Club & Resort, formerly Lakeview Hills Golf Resort, into a world class golf, lodging, dining and wedding destination in the thumb of Michigan.
"Our Father, Emilio Fabbri, wanted this property to be a destination for world class golf and hospitality. We have my brother, Dennis Fabbri, a PGA professional, taking care of the golf side of the business, and our family recognized the need to elevate our services in the hotel, restaurant & banquet operations side of the business. We couldn't be happier to have Fadi
Achour at the helm to take this operation to the next level," said Tom Fabbri.
The renovation plans highlight a fine dining restaurant to be called Emilio's Prime Steakhouse, a homage to the late patriarch of the family, Emilio Fabbri. Emilio's Prime aims to be a great special occasion restaurant and destination for those in the surrounding areas, serving specialty steaks and fresh seafood.
Other plans include a new outdoor wedding ceremony location on the golf course, offering magnificent views and photo opportunities for couples; a modernized large ballroom, affectionately named the Lexington Ballroom; and total renovations to the 29 on-property guest rooms, plus an addition of 4 junior suites. Topping off the list are a breathtaking bridal suite and a fun groom suite, both of which will have views of the course and outdoor wedding area.
Fadi Achour, a 35-year hospitality veteran brought on as General Manager says "When I was approached about this 294-acre slice of heaven in the small town of Lexington, Michigan, I immediately fell in love with the charm and old world feel. The property transports you to San Marino, Italy, where Emilio Fabbri was born and raised, which was the inspiration to create such an iconic destination here in Michigan."
Situated twenty miles north of Port Huron and the Canadian Border, Lakeview Hills Country Club & Resort prides itself on its pristine 36-hole golf course with a full-service clubhouse. The club also features a full fitness center with racquetball and wallyball courts. The Lexington Ballroom can hold up to 300 guests and there is potential for hosting larger sized weddings on the greens, along with smaller indoor spaces for more intimate gatherings.
Along with the planned renovations, the entire property is being rebranded to stay in line with this fresh start and modernization. The project is expected to be completed by summer of 2023

All of his life, Brian has been around the game of golf. As a youngster, Brian competed at all levels in junior and high school golf.
