Sculpted around many lakes, The Village Links of Glen Ellyn's 18-hole championship course and 9-hole course fill 170 acres with a verdant landscape of challenging golf. Originally built in 1967 and renovated in 2004, the championship course has played host to 40 USGA and PGA Tour qualifying tournaments, including those for the 2012 U.S. Open and 2008 U.S. Amateur.

Sixteen waterways meander through the grounds, directly entering play on all but three holes, where they enter play indirectly by threatening to take down golf shots with troupes of flying fish. On the par 4 10th hole, players must hit a difficult tee shot onto an S-shaped fairway that weaves between two large lakes. The 18th hole, also a par 4, features a treasure trove of sunken golf balls and golf carts lurking in three lakes that surround the fairway and in one that lies right in the middle. Once safely on the greens, players putt over fast A-4 bentgrass surfaces, a key addition from the 2004 renovation.

18-Hole Course at a Glance:

  • Par 72
  • Total length of 7,208 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 74.9 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 138 from the back tees
  • Five sets of tees per hole
  • Scorecard

9-Hole Course at a Glance:

  • Par 36
  • Total length of 3,303 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 35.7 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 129 from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole

All big movements start small, but many would be surprised to learn that Ten Thousand Villages—a nonprofit and retailer with 390 outlets nationwide—began out of a car trunk. In 1946, Edna Ruth Byler started the organization out of her car, taking a name from a quote by Mohandas Gandhi, who said, “India is not to be found in its few cities but in the 700,000 villages.” Her willpower and determination allowed her vision to grow into a nonprofit that today supports more than 130 artisans in 38 developing countries. These artisans' wares go on sale at the organization's nationwide retail outlets, which brim with items including jewelry, home decor, and refrigerator cozies.

Everything is made using environmentally friendly processes, and every artisan is paid a fair wage. The money raised from sales goes to supply the artisans—who might otherwise be unemployed or underemployed—with education, food, housing, and healthcare. The organization has risen to such stature that it won the People’s Choice Award for Green Business of the Year in 2005, and has acted as one of the founding members of the World Fair Trade Organization.

As a child, Michael Perich watched in awe as the women in his life enhanced their features and self-esteem by applying makeup. His wonder turned into passion when he became an expert in color theory and cosmetic techniques. As his talent grew, so did his portfolio, media recognition, and the pressure to sell, sell, sell. He found himself disillusioned. So in 2004, he opened Camp Cosmetics to return to his true passion—educating women and helping them feel beautiful and confident. Today, his Chicagoland store provides cruelty-free products made with botanical extracts and high pigment levels that keep reapplication to a minimum.

The staff at Olive 'n Vinnie's Market believes you should never buy an olive oil or balsamic vinegar before tasting it. That's why they generously pour out samples of their more than 20 flavored balsamic vinegars and more than 30 cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oils. Their olive oils take on flavors such as garlic, mushroom, sage, lemon, and even butter, which offers a healthier option to consume the treat, beyond using it as chapstick.

Though they carry olive oils from throughout the world, their balsamic vinegars come from only one source: Modena, Italy. All their flavored vinegars are made in Modena, the city where it has been a staple since the middle ages. Their selection often veers a little from the traditional recipe, incorporating ingredients such as pomegranate, figs, dark chocolate, and espresso. These flavors add a sweet touch that make them perfect for salad dressings or dipping sauces.
