Culled from the noggin of course-crafter John Sanford, the Dogwood course at Garden Valley merges Champion bermuda greens with Lake Butler's lapping shores to forge an unforgettable 6,840 yards of play. Towering pine trees blanket golf carts in shadows, cooling players as they ponder the best methods to evade the course's many water hazards and rolling hills, where distracted golfers often sacrifice games, stopping to paint the picturesque East Texas landscape.
Guests may also admire the scenery from the onsite restaurant, which serves house-made omelets and crisp salads. The eatery resides below the clubhouse’s vaulted ceilings, in addition to a fully equipped pro shop and an outdoor terrace overlooking the 18th green. Across the street lies the Garden Valley Sports Complex, a 24-hour facility filled with fitness machines and free weights that help patrons to burn fat beside an indoor basketball court and a refreshing pool relatively free of feral manatees.

Forney Wellness’s advanced facility is more than just a medical clinic. In fact, the sleek, spacious facility is home to full-service medical, dental, and massage-therapy practices. On the medical side, two family physicians—one of whom has appeared on Good Morning Texas and CW 33—focus on preventive care to ensure patients stay healthy and strong. The duo turns to science-based programs that utilize traditional medicine for those suffering from chronic disease such as fatigue and IBS, but also promotes lifestyle changes and nutrition management.
Within the dental facility, three highly trained dentists keep smiles healthy using time-tested services including sealants and routine cleanings. The doctors are also experienced in more complex procedures, such as emergency oral surgeries, advanced teeth whitening, and discovery of cavities with their x-ray vision.
In the massage section of the clinic, clients can unwind with custom massages. Therapists use Swedish, trigger-point, and reflexology techniques while enhancing each session with add-ons such as hot-stone work and aromatherapy to promote deep relaxation.
Imagine the moment when a shy, introverted young girl steps in front of a room full of people for the first time and speaks with confidence and clarity. This is a regular occurrence at Drama Kids International, where experienced teachers use a unique, copyrighted curriculum to help shape and focus outgoing children or draw shy children out of their shells. Classes for kids as young as 3 refine speech techniques, dramatic movement, and imagination, giving them the confidence to perform in front of an audience or finally ask their parents to change their names to Thespis. For older kids, aged 12–18, Drama Kids International offers the DKI Acting Academy, where serious theater kids can expand their speaking, acting, and auditioning skills through exercises and performances.
