Getting Social at Bright’s Creek

With Cathy Brovet, Director of Member Services

Community is at the heart of everything we do here at beautiful Bright’s Creek. From engaging rounds of golf on our stunning Tom Fazio-designed course to our lifestyle center featuring multi-generational entertainment and amenities, bringing people together for life’s most memorable moments is what we do best.

This month, we had the pleasure of speaking with Bright’s Creek’s Director of Member Services, Cathy Brovet, to learn all about the exciting social events and enrichment opportunities that are brewing at Bright’s. Discover what’s on the horizon and see how your family can play, learn, and grow right here in your very own North Carolina mountain paradise.

Cathy, tell us a little bit about yourself and what you do here at Bright’s Creek. 

I’ve been lucky enough to be in leadership at multiple clubs throughout my career and have always had a passion for building relationships with people. From small startup communities to established developments, I’ve been a part of them all and love the unique activities, demographics, and experiences they each bring—but there’s something so special about life here at Bright’s Creek. I really enjoy managing lodging and member services in such an intimate atmosphere. In my role, I have the unique opportunity to introduce people to outdoor living in North Carolina, as well as act as a bridge that helps connect people in our community to one another. From planning social events and new enrichment series, I do it all with the support of our amazing members and staff.

What do you think makes Bright’s Creek so unique? 

The second you come here, you fall in love with Bright’s Creek. Visually, it’s just breathtaking and there’s a vibrant energy everywhere you turn. We feel tucked away in our own little North Carolina mountain oasis, but there’s so much to do and see—both inside and outside of our gates. From the bustling Tryon Fine Arts Center to theaters, galleries, and educational opportunities, there are so many things to do in North Carolina. You can truly support local here!

Beyond the beauty and abundance of unique activities, I think our members here really set our community apart from the rest. We have a small, personal feel that offers privacy when you want it and connection when you crave it. Everyone here is passionate and we’ve all worked together to shape Bright’s Creek into something special!

Bright’s Creek has a summer packed with an array of amazing activities! Tell us what members can look forward to and share some insights into your planning process.

Yes, we’re really looking forward to what’s on the horizon for the rest of the year! We make it easy for Bright’s Creek members to stay connected and up to date on all the latest happenings on the club calendar on Clubster. From really unique fireside chats all about nature to luncheons, sporting events, pool parties, wine dinners, mixers, golf events, live music, cooking classes, bowling leagues, and even a kids’ camp, we have something for everyone! It’s also very important to me to educate our members and offer them meaningful resources beyond entertainment. Later this year, we’ll be introducing members to the Polk County hospital system so that everyone knows about the important resources that are within easy reach here at Bright’s.

I begin planning for the busy social season months in advance so that we can offer our members a really thoughtful, exciting array of curated experiences. We aim to host at least one or two events during the peak summer season. Planning involves researching local events, artists, workshops, and educational activities. I love chatting with members to hear about what they’d like to learn or experience as well. We’re surrounded by an abundance of talent and so many unique backgrounds here at Bright’s Creek, so it’s incredible to tap into our local resources and neighbors, too.

Our activities and events are in a blossoming phase where anything and everything is possible! We’re making our own rules and creating programs that appeal to members versus relying on agendas that have been in rooted place for years without being nimble. My love for enrichment is a thread you’ll find throughout our programming. We hosted a morel mushroom hunt last year, which has flourished into so many more nature-inspired learnings and experiences. People don’t know they have a passion for something until you spark it!
