Easter and eggs go hand in hand.  Be it the rich, delectable omelets at our club’s Easter brunch, or the colorful plastic version hidden from treasure-hunting kids dressed in adorable outfits, eggs are abundant at Pine Canyon on Easter. And since Easter is approaching fast, this year falling on April Fool’s Day – no joke – we’re looking forward to a celebratory weekend that often serves as an appetizer for the coming summer season. And, we’re switching things up a bit this year, holding our egg hunt the day before our Easter brunch.

To start the weekend, we will host our annual egg hunt as part of our Easter Eggstravaganza on Saturday, March 31.  Festivities will begin at 11 a.m. at the clubhouse, and the hunt for more than 600 eggs will start at 12:30 p.m.  So, don’t stress if the egg-hunting child in your life makes you a little late for the start of the celebration. We’ve built in a 90-minute buffer for the big hunt. We’ll cross our fingers for perfect weather, and we will have $5 mimosas on hand either way.

Beyond the big hunt, we’ll also have a hot cocoa bar, egg dying, arts and crafts, and Ukrainian egg decorating with Katie Martin. The Easter Bunny will be bopping around for fun photos, and we will hide two golden eggs that can be redeemed for stocked Easter baskets.

The following day, we will unveil an indulgent Easter brunch, with seatings at 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. From starters to desserts to the carving station in between, the holiday brunch offers something to satisfy everyone’s palate.

Starters include breakfast pastries, berries and granola, and a Thai coconut-chicken soup. Smoked bacon, turkey and pork sausages anchor the omelet station, while a decadent maple aroma will be circling the French toast station. Salads include heirloom tomatoes, goat cheese, and pistachios, and a hot buffet will round out a delicious meal with basil potatoes, rice, and asparagus. This year’s carving station will feature roast “steamship” leg of pork and roast leg of lamb.

The dessert table is where the grown-ups become the treasure hunters. Those in search of a sweet treat will find chocolate dipped strawberries and chocolate-iced cream puffs, along with key lime and mango cheesecake tartlets and lemon and cream shortcake. An assortment of truffles will also be on hand.

Reservations are required for brunch, which costs $45 for each adult and $20 for each child, with kids ages 3 and under eating for free.

Reservations are also required to attend the egg hunt, which costs $12 per person. To reserve a spot, please contact the concierge at 928-779-5800 or [email protected].
