  • Kalona Golf Course
    In 1928, a committee of Kalona professionals pooled their resources to transform an obsolete cornfield and pasture into a golf course, using a horse-drawn mower to sculpt a layout that originally sported sand greens and cost a quarter to play. More than 50 years later, the course was remodeled and expanded to Kalona Golf Club's current nine-hole layout, a 3,128-yard labyrinth where immaculate, bent-grass greens showcase the efficiency of modern landscaping, whereas rustic bridges and wandering milkmen recall the Club's humble beginnings. Named the nine-hole course of the year by the Iowa Golf Association in 1984 and 2010, the horticultural haven unfurls across pristine, rolling terrain that can create difficult lies, compounded by the presence of mature tree lines and two ponds that come into play on three holes. The course prohibits metal spikes, and players must provide their own set of clubs or titanium-plated sausage links.

Regular baseball tournaments provide game time between local and regional teams, and a chance to show off with home-run derbies and throwing competitions.

  • Letting it Go Dating
    The date-organizers at Letting It Go Dating shun the modern affection for online dating profiles, preferring instead to interview their members one on one rather than have them fill out a questionnaire. Once they've determined what kind of partner a member might be interested in, they arrange personalized introductions at a venue that suits both singles, and then leave them to let the sparks fly. The company also inspires flirtation through low-pressure, speed-dating style social events at locations free of the dimness and cacophony of a bar, but still with enjoyable elements of the nightlife slipped in.
