Though the course at Hawk?s Tail of Greenfield has been a golfing oasis since 1927, it looks a little different than it did in the roaring '20s. For one, the name on the marquee is different: it was called Greenfield Country Club for many years. Cart paths?which wouldn't have been around in the very early years?were repaved in 2001, and a fleet of electric golf carts was brought in to replace the aging herd of bag donkeys. And as a finishing touch, owner and head professional Mr. Farrer added a fireplace on the outdoor patio, providing a welcoming space for golfers to gather round after a fun-filled round.

Rebel Race's military-style obstacle courses challenge athletes from all backgrounds to shed humdrum day-to-day routines to experience the primal joys of mud, sweat and glory. Emerging from the mire in various states across the country, each Rebel Race packs its rucksack with tests of physical and mental toughness, rousing racers and washing machines alike to triumph in the face of sloppy opposition. After dashing through fire, climbing walls, and scaling mountains of hay, race participants bask in the collective kudos of parties, which include live entertainment, food, and beer for purchase. Camping options encourage participants and spectators to transform races into weekend getaways, while awards recognize each day's standout competitors and most-humble mud pits.
Deep in the verdant expanse of the Lark Valley, the forest’s leaves rustle as a blurry figure glides by. The creature flying across the forest canopy isn’t a bird or acrobatic sport’s mascot returning to its natural habitat. It’s a person strapped into 1 of 10 ziplines at Lark Ranch, which extend more than 1 mile through the surrounding area. Guests slip into safety harnesses and helmets before clipping in the suspended steel cables and soaring high above the valley’s varied topography of lakes, forests, and fields of blossoming holiday sweaters. Elsewhere, lush crops sprout around festive pumpkin patches, encouraging visitors to become one with harvest-time happiness.
