Ste. Genevieve Golf Club makes good on its promise as a golf course accessible for all skill levels, and then some. Four sets of tees is something of an unwritten standard for most golf courses, though some more generous ones furnish five. Ste. Genevieve, meanwhile, has six. Beyond the Blue, White, Yellow, and Red tees lay a Level 1 and Level 2 set, ideal for youngsters just learning the game, those with slower swing speeds, and those desperate for a hole-in-one that will finally impress their fathers. These tee options make the course as short as 2,256 yards or as long as 6,396, though challenges lurk around every dogleg regardless of length. A stream cuts across several fairways on the front nine, and tree lines run along the fairways throughout.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,396 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 69.2 from the back tees * Course slope of 112 from the back tees * Six sets of tees per hole * View the scorecard

Opened in 1960, Union Hills Golf Course's 18-hole layout presents a tale of two nines. On the front nine, golfers can swing freely?and find their rhythm?on a mostly open layout, easing their way into the round. The tone shifts on the back nine, where fairways tunnel through dense groves of trees that have grown tall in their half-century of maturation. Adding to the difficulty, water hazards come into play on four holes throughout the round.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 6,560 yards from the tips * Course rating of 72.1 from the tips * Slope rating of 134 from the tips * Three tee options * Scorecard
Becky Kern began teaching dance classes in her basement in 1961. She had just five students who paid a mere $5 a month, but before long the tapping of toes had her neighbors complaining so she opened Becky Kern's Dance Studio. Today, Becky's daughter-in-law and granddaughter keep the studio running smoothly whether teaching 3 year olds how to move creatively with their bodies or coaching teens on the competitive dance team. Six days a week, groups gather to practice tumbling, jazz, and contemporary dance moves in front of the studio's full-length mirrors, where students can follow along with instructors. BYOB ballroom-dancing classes are also available for adults, who can pop corks and learn swirling steps during fun, engaging classes.
