Host of the PGA’s Wyndham Championship from 1977 to 2007, Proehlific Club at Forest Oaks's private course incorporates natural elements such as looming trees and severely sloping hills with manmade sand traps and water obstacles, challenging beginning and experienced golfers alike. Opened in 1962, the terrain was renovated in 2002 after the renowned Love Golf Design group reached out to professional golfers to find out what makes an ideal course. The main improvement, helmed by Davis Love III, was the resprigging of the fairway with bermuda grass, a strain of turf that can handle extreme temperature changes, and a redesign of the new greens. The course was featured on the PGA for over 30 years, and was enjoyed by Davis Love III as well as Rocco Mediate and many other professionals. While the golf course is the main attraction, the club also houses a pro shop, a 25-yard professional-size swimming pool, tennis courts, and a restaurant.

Like the art of Tae Kwan Do, seventh-degree black belt Grand Master Sang Ho Lee hails from Korea. He's one of the six martial arts Grand Masters and Masters who teach at Lee Brothers Academy?and, as the studio's name suggests, the other five are Lees, too. After watching a bout of their kicks, jabs, and brick-breaking, you'll suspect that a feisty streak runs in the family.
That steak is well counterbalanced by a peaceful side, however. The Lees complement their Tae Kwon Do lessons with lessons in Hap Ki Do, a "soft" martial art in which the practitioner avoids force altogether. Instead, he or she defuses attacks as nonviolently as possible, using joint locks and pressure points to turn the attacker's strength against him. This method is ideal for small fighters taking on bigger opponents, or whale-wrestlers in training.
For more than a decade, the Taste Carolina Wine Festival has created an outdoor menagerie of locally bottled libations and live musicians. Local wineries set up booths where guests can sample their liquid wares before purchasing bottles that will be tagged and ready for pick up after the festival. On the stage, bands that range from rock ?n? roll to adult contemporary strum and sing, forging a melodious backdrop to booths showcasing sculptures, home crafts, foodstuffs, and pamphlet arrangements rivaling the beauty of those in the Sistine Chapel?s gift shop.
