Seven days a week, Duds ‘n Suds and Reynolds resonate with the gentle hum of their fleet of coin-operated washers and driers. Customers can manually cleanse their dirty apparel and towels or drop off laundry by the pound at the Duds ‘n Suds location to be washed, dried, and folded by the laundromats’ expertly trained staff. Customers waiting for freshly washed or dried articles can sip on complimentary coffee or place bets on how many tootsie pops it takes to fill a dryer.
Bowling Green Country Club’s nine-hole course journeys across 73 acres of Ohio countryside. Featuring a nine-hole yardage of 2,782 from the farthest tees, the layout adds a sense of variety with four tee options for golfers looking to play the hole twice for an 18-hole round or foursomes who prefer to play without having to interact. A watery ellipse stands in the middle of four holes, including the par 3 seventh, where tee shots must somersault 168 yards over the corner of the pond to find the green. After rounds, duffers can unwind at the outdoor patio of Jeff Szabo’s Fairway Grill, where a wait staff of disguised caddies serves a menu of burgers, salads, sandwiches, and other hearty fare.

Instructors also supply ingredients, gear, and know-how during Kids in the Kitchen and Taste of Super Suppers classes that teach participants how to create simple and tasty meals at home.
