The fairways at Deer Run Country Club beckon golfers along an immaculately crosshatched carpet of plush bent grass. Whittled from a rolling blanket of forest by architect Mike Macke, the 18-hole course forms a heart-shaped patch surrounding several arteries of pristine residential streets and five ponds lurking in wait. After building up an appetite while hacking out of the rough and taking in the beauteous Ohio River Valley setting, players can fill up on wings, pizzas, and half-pound burgers at the Fairway Grill.

Family fun constantly unfolds at General Custers Golf & Gulp, where mini-golfers putt past obstacles on two different 18-hole courses. Along the way, they cross paths with quirky sea creatures, characters from pop culture, and a large, wooden pirate ship, a sight that is usually only spotted in the ocean or the bathtubs of billionaires. Away from the courses, visitors can trade their clubs for spoons and dig into nearly 40 flavors of ice cream. They can also re-fuel for another round with smoothies, sundaes, shakes, and ice cream sandwiches.
