Players putt and drive their way through a nine-hole course that stretches 3,030 yards across Irish Greens Golf Club's peaceful grounds. Along the way, they encounter several ponds, a creek, and small greens that make landing shots near the pin difficult and fully choreographed gymnastics routines after an Eagle nearly impossible. Visits don't have to end once the last shot is sunk, though: the club also boasts a cozy dining room and a full menu for sit-down dinners. The bar area provides the ideal spot to watch a game, and daily lunch and dinner specials keep bellies and wallets happy.

Joe BikeLer's Bike Shop's staff outfits peddlers with 24-hour person-powered wheel rentals from an extensive selection of bikes for traveling Wisconsin's longest bike trail. The Mountain Bay Trail runs from the Green Bay area west to Wausau, stretching more than 80 miles, the same distance Lewis and Clark traveled before Lewis insisted on some "me time." Joe BikeLer's Bike Shop is tucked inside the renovated Chicago and North Western Railroad station, a historic landmark. Bikers take off from the former locomotive watering hole to cycle down the path, which replaced the old train tracks. Open year-round, the trail makes an ideal location for an autumn's journey or a Valentine's snow picnic, and Joe BikeLer's Bike Shop also stocks nutritious drinks and snacks to fuel furious wheeling.
At My Fantasy Farm, trainer Jenna teaches equestrians of all ages how to ride with proper technique. Classes progress from beginner to advanced, with techniques covering everything from mounting and dismounting to cantering and serpentines. One of the styles taught is Saddleseat, an English style that shows off the high trotting action of a flashy American Saddlebred. During riding lessons, the instructor covers the basics of horse grooming, tacking and untacking, and equine care. Participants can also house their horses in the facility's 12-foot stalls between lessons. Students of all experience levels are welcome.
