The golf carts at The Woodlands Golf Club take players on a grassy roller-coaster ride over frequent changes in elevation and down fairways brimming with challenging lies at every turn. Play intertwines perilously with a winding creek at many points, with a scant three holes, like a cautious wicked witch, managing to avoid water altogether. All 18 holes launch players down zoysia grass fairways from one of four tees, challenging each club in the bag en route to greens that hold approaches and roll true. On the last hole, the newly refurbished clubhouse provides a scenic backdrop for the homestretch. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 72 course Total length of 6,418 yards from the back tees Course rating of 70.6 from the back tees Course slope of 123 from the back tees Four sets of tees per hole

The Great Godfrey Maze brings a bit of a seasonal joy to the village of Godfrey, itself situated at the maze-like intersection of the Mississippi, Illinois, and Missouri rivers. Each year, the corn maze features a different theme that determines the layout of the passageways and the design of the cow train. The 2014 theme celebrates the Harry Potter book and film series. From above, the corn maze looks like the mystical Hogwarts' towers. The cow train, meanwhile, is rechristened the Hogwarts Express, and the hay wagon ride serves as the festival's very own Night Bus. There's even a zip line, giving guests the chance to experience a little of what it must feel like to ride a flying broom or rocket towards superstardom after publishing your first novel.

What is known today as Rolling Hills debuted in the spring of 1965 as Country Fairways, a nine-hole golf course carved out of a 40-acre parcel of pastureland on Droste?s farm in rural northwest Madison County. Back in the day, patrons were spared any hint of ceremony as they laid down modest greens fee on the counter of an unassuming starter ?shack? that was fashioned from the bed of a long retired grain truck. Today, Rolling Hills Golf Course still supports the modest ideals of a bygone era with an emphasis on course maintenance and approachable design. The 5,765-yard layout features water that comes into play on at least seven holes, but the course makes it playable for all skill levels with open fairways, sparse tree lines, and large greens. After a round of sinking birdies or snapping fairway irons in half, players can relax with a snack or drink at the bar and grill inside the clubhouse.
