Keeping shots straight is the key to scoring low at Eagle Grove Golf Course. The nine-hole layout features straightaway holes lined by many trees to knock down errant shots, making things easier on golfers who specialize in bouncing shots off of tree trunks. If players can manage to keep their approaches on the short stuff, they give themselves the best shot of beating the par of 35?a tricky test even with the 2,959-yard overall length.

Since opening in 1969, the nine-hole course at Woodward Golf Club has showcased a golfing oasis just off the southwest corner of Woodward. With few trees scattered about the course and forgiving fairway designs, golfers can unleash power off the tees without fear of losing their shots to dense forests filled with thick brush and thin trolls hungry for golf balls. A recreational pool awaits near the clubhouse, ready to cool down bodies overworked by the heat or the strenuous struts that follow stressful putts. Course at a Glance: * Nine-hole, par 35 course * Total length of 3,022 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 68.1 from the back tees * Course slope of 109 from the back tees

The smells of hay and freshly picked apples mingle with the shouts of children on the annual Erie Shores Farm Tour. An organized event between four very different, yet equally welcoming, farm facilities, the self-guided tour encompasses fall foods and a range of harvest-themed activities. Hillcrest Orchards welcomes visitors with attractions such as hayrides, a corn maze, and pedal carts, while staff at Dostall Farms lead their guests on a guided tour of their humane meat-processing facility, where animals are fed only grass or corn. The event ends with a prize drawing at Matus Winery, where staff also give a guided tour of the wine-making facilities, including the giant barrel where the winemakers sleep every night. To ensure participants don't lose their ways, Erie Shores Farm Tour provides a complimentary map and suggested travel routes between locations.
