Both of today's options boast numerous chances to swing into success. The five-pass package grants green access for up to five challengers at Champion Hills Country Club. The verdant, 200-acre course showcases a smaller cottage-style design with nine holes that emphasize unique architecture, reward strategic thinking, yet remain approachable to all skill levels. Wedge-wielders take to the tee on holes sporting par-expectations of three and four strokes, with the looming, par-five seventh hole destined to make pros and ams alike beg for mulligans. Pre- and post-swinging, guests can swing through and satiate their hunger at the elegant, auburn-hued dining room and full-service bar, accessible as part of the package.
On 134 acres of farmland outside of Fairport, the dedicated staff and volunteers of Lollypop Farm, the Humane Society of Greater Rochester care for thousands of stray animals each year. The open-admission shelter adopts animals of all breeds and species—including cats, dogs, rabbits, birds, horses, and pigs—and holds programs to educate visitors on the issues that contribute to the animals' overpopulation and difficulty in attaining advanced degrees.
The staff encourages families to visit the animals and enjoy the outdoor farm petting area, and oversees younger visitors as they build bonds with animals through education programs such as basic pet care for 3–5 year-olds. The Future Vets program teaches aspiring veterinarians in fifth–eighth grades how to conduct basic exams and begin working toward careers in animal care or pig-to-horse translation services. Summer farm camps also provide a hands-on experience as young visitors have fun feeding animals and caring for their own designated camp pets.
