Meet Michigan Golf Live Host Bill Hobson:

Bill Hobson

In 1999, Michigan Golf Live (MGL) host Bill Hobson had the unusual dream of bringing entertaining golf talk to the radio. In its early days, the result of that dream was a weekly 1-hour radio show that has grown in the one of the nation’s leading programs dedicated to celebrating the game and the special places it can be played.

Now in its 17th season, MGL Radio is carried statewide every Saturday morning, while MGL-TV can be seen on FOX Sports Detroit each weekend at 9:30 a.m.

The MGL/Grand Hotel partnership gave birth to the Grand Golf Getaway, hosted by Bill and attended by Grand Hotel guests in both June and again in September. We hope you’ll come be part of the fun, friends, and memories of this very special time at Grand Hotel!
