Dream Valley Golf Course’s 18-hole layout unfurls across 6,255 yards of pristine fairways kissed by seven ponds amid a farmland perimeter teeming with lush foliage. Though mostly characterized by forgiving, tree-lined fairways, the course’s inventive layout requires adept course management with many twisting hole designs and flagsticks that double as jousting sticks during golf-cart battles. A dramatic dogleg right on the par-4 fourth forms the course’s hardest-rated hole, wherein golfers must either attack the 365-yard corridor by crushing a forced carry over a large pond or lay up about 160–180 yards for a safer but less rewarding tee shot. Clubbers can careen across the emerald meadows on their own spiky-soled feet or enlist the help of the club’s stock of rental carts, which help loop the links efficiently while insisting on being called a Mars rover-in-training.

Shires For Hire lead passengers on rolling, relaxing, and intimate horse-drawn carriage rides. Passengers nestle up close as their antique-style carriage trundles along a downtown street, elegantly pulls passengers away from a wedding, or schleps holiday wagons through the snow. Drivers delicately lead the ride, sporting cowboy hats, top hats for a black-tie affair, or hard hats when riding through a car wash.
