[[m:####Oakview Golf Club Formerly a private course for more than 50 years, Oakview Golf Club now welcomes the public to take on its lengthy, 6,098-yard layout. The course nestled in Butler County features immaculate bentgrass fairways that veer through tree lines of a dense forest. The golf course demands that golfers not only demonstrate distance and control but also the ability to look both ways when crossing the street in search of a wayward tee shot or a pet headcover that has run away. The club's strong membership base keeps greens buzzing with local loyalists well into the season.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 70 course * Total length of 6,098 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 70.4 from the back tees * Course slope of 124 from the back tees

Since 1988, Pet Supplies Plus has welcomed millions of furry critters of every stripe—from llamas and monkeys to potbellied pigs—into their animal-friendly stores. The shop is designed so that both pets and their owners can easily navigate the inventory of more than 10,000 items. Wide aisles give leashed pups enough room to roam, colorful signage keeps shoppers moving in the right direction, and low shelves allow dogs to sniff out their preferred brand of rawhide chew. A self-serve dog wash enables guests to scrub their canine companions' coats to a youthful, puppy-like shine, whereas grooming services enlist professionals to tackle tougher jobs, such as brushing out matted fur or convincing dalmatians to stop mixing white and black after Labor Day.
