When golfers step onto River Valley Golf Course’s elevated first tee, the sun glances off the clubhouse windows to their backs and an emerald sweep of the Raccoon River Valley unfurls before them. Taking cues from that tranquility, they gracefully arc their balls over the gently doglegging fairway, avoiding the creek hugging the hole to the left. Careful second shots pop up into the sky before landing on the wide green and setting up eagle putts. With the shots sunk, golfers continue on across the remaining 17 fairways, dodging ponds on 3 holes and skirting 25 bunkers speckled throughout.

This incorporation of the landscape takes center stage on the par 3 12th. There, a partial-island green formed by a pond that almost envelops a peninsula tests accuracy. Players can take the risk overshooting the drive, play it safe by chipping on in two, or let the strategic decision overwhelm them until they’re curled up on the ground. But to help prepare for all situations, the River Valley practice facility presents golfers with a greenside practice bunker and a 300-yard range.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,684 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 72 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 124 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole

From above, the 4-acre corn maze at Patch’s Pumpkins & Honey Farm looks like a challenge. It weaves through swaying stalks and around cleared expanses that spell out words to literate blue jays flying overhead. The maze’s mile-long pathways are dotted with checkpoints, making the labyrinth easy for families to conquer in about an hour. One of the many autumnal attractions at the farm, the corn maze and its kid-size sister entertain groups as fall sets in.

Elsewhere on the farm, the sound of a soaring pumpkin cuts through the air every hour, on the hour, as it’s fired from a novelty cannon. Trace its path and you’ll encounter striped circus tents housing all manner of diversion: a straw bale maze, a jumping pit filled with corn kernels, and a lineup of furry creatures beckoning hands at the petting zoo. To navigate all these attractions, folks can meander the grounds on foot, in the bed of an antique tractor, or atop a pony that circles its course and refuses to accept tips.
