Expansive fairways are cleaved through groves of mature oak trees, creating verdant alleyways for golfers to swing past windswept rough and dense forest as they navigate Dragon’s Fire Golf Club, named a Best New Course in Canada by Golf Digest in 2009. Architect Boris Danoff sculpted the course from a former tree farm into the rolling countryside, seamlessly incorporating the natural lay of the land into a compelling design. Depending on their skill level or which Brady Bunch child they’re choosing to play as, golfers can play the course from six tee boxes that range from 5,085 yards from the red tees up to a daunting 7,202 yards from the tips.

Club Car Champion carts escort players around the course's 80 bunkers and nine distinctly shaped ponds. True to its name, the course can be monstrous and unforgiving, as showcased on the course's most difficult hole, the 633-yard par 5 13th, a grassy monolith with fairway bunkers and massive trees in play that obstruct several paths to the green. After putting out on the 528-yard par 5 18th hole, a demanding dogleg-right with ample water and sand, golfers can retire to the clubhouse's outdoor patio for drinks and snacks or head to the pro shop to replace their pitching wedge that mysteriously snapped in half.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 7,202 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 73 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 131 from the back tees
  • Six sets of tees per hole

Sewing machines perch atop blue-skirted tables in a brightly lit room accented with hardwood floors, bookshelves brimming with multihued material, and wall displays of buttons and sewing accessories. In these welcoming confines, the instructors of Chenoa Designs guide students through their projects, imparting techniques for attaching appliqués to homemade handbags or adjusting dress patterns to fit a pet goldfish. The team of seam sultans works to expand the stitchwork community through a roster of classes that guide newcomers on everything from the basics of operating a sewing machine to the intricacies of embroidery and appliqué. While students work, they can draw from the DIY emporium's stock of specialty embroidery machines and binding systems by Martelli along with renowned lines such as Jenny Haskins designs to ensure their projects benefit from top-notch materials and tools.
