Designed in 1918 by prolific course architect Thomas Bendelow—reputed as "The Johnny Appleseed of American Golf" after designing roughly 600 courses over 35 years—Anderson Country Club's 18-hole, par 71 course stretches across 6,402 yards of lush Carolina woodlands. The emerald landscape features mostly straight-ahead fairways and favors a straightforward design in which tight tree lines provide the bulk of the challenge and most obstacles are easily identified from a distance. Four chromatically designated tee options make the course surmountable for players of all abilities, allowing scratch golfers to play alongside 10-handicap frenemies or competitively deficient alter egos.

Sixty-three pounds. That’s the state record weight of the heaviest fish ever reeled in from the waters of Fish Tales Guide Service’s chartered fishing trips. Angler Wayne White and his team of experienced guides take groups onto Lake Hartwell to capture stripers, largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish. “I’d be surprised if anybody knows more about Lake Hartwell and catching striper then Wayne White,” wrote one participant after a day on the water.

Groups depart from Portman Marina and climb into boats outfitted with advanced electronics and fishing equipment. Guides bring along all the necessary supplies, including tackle, bait, and a cheering section that rejoices when anyone makes a catch. Participants are encouraged to bring snacks, drinks, and a cooler large enough to take home the day’s catch.

At Upstate Equestrian Center, professional trainer and coach Jamie Grant teaches the importance of proper horse care in tandem with the development of safe, polished riding skills. She adapts her English Hunt Seat Equitation lessons for students ranging from advanced riders participating in private lessons to young children taking part in the center’s Tiny Tots and Pony Pals classes. Curriculum in the Hunter/Jumper/Equitation program takes place on the well-appointed grounds, where indoor and outdoor arenas, a jump course, and landscaped pastures provide a variety of riding spaces. Onlookers can watch the action as they cheer on family, friends, or that one dog that still thinks it’s a horse.

Big things happen at Studio Made. Makeshops, which are held almost every day, guide the creation of bath bombs, candy, hand-painted silk scarves, and holiday Mason-jar snow-globe ornaments. Meanwhile, special events like kids' birthday parties and grownup gatherings inspire friends to get their hands dirty together. Participants might dip-dye fabrics with near-neon pigments, customize canvases with their own design, or embark on another creative adventure, but whatever they do, they're encouraged to make something that's all their own.

For eight years, Kim Kelley was in charge of organizing consignment events for the Upstate. In 2012, she decided to incorporate some holiday spirit into her planning and created the first-annual Holly Jolly Holiday Fair. At the Fair, visitors of all ages ring in the season with Santa, Manual Holiday - the elf, and performers, while local artisans, crafters, and food vendors dole out their goods. The sound of merry music rings through the gathering, and aromas of fresh-cut pine trees fill the air with extra holiday cheer as opposed to just new-car smell.
