Missing Sock Laundry’s staffers deftly cleanse clothes of dirt and grime using environmentally friendly materials. Customers drop off laundry and can either return later for pickup or arrange an at-home drop-off, freeing up precious time for careful observation of definitely living lawn gnomes.

Comforters and sleeping bags ($20 each) also undergo careful cleaning after being soiled by mud-wrestler roommates.

The 18-hole course combination that presents the longest total yardage—the yellow nine and the green nine—presents 4,261 yards of tee-to-green challenges. Though there are no par 5s on any of the courses, a variety of lengthy par 3s and four par 4s that exceed 300 yards will present various difficulties for golfers playing from the longest tees. Water hazards come into play on six of the 27 holes, adding variety to the course’s natural hazards of thick tree-lines and quicksand bunkers.
