  • Diamond Trail Golf Club
    Reservations/Appointments: Optional Established: 1997 Staff Size: 2?10 people Average Duration of Services: 2?4 hours Parking: Parking lot Handicap Accessible: Yes Recommended Age Group: All ages Most Popular Attraction/Offering: Large, fast greens, driving range, and well maintained course and carts Pro Tip: Take advantage of the driving range to warm-up before your round of golf. Q&A with Teryl Ver Ploeg, Board President What is one fun, unusual fact about your business? Our course has tee to green hard surface cart paths. Rainy days won't prevent golfers from playing. What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special? Golfers will find the course to be family friendly and a good test of skill as they enjoy playing across our large, fast greens. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? During the week, it's generally easy to get on the course right away. However, the club does hold activities, so golfers are encouraged to call the pro shop before they arrive.

  • Eddyville Raceway Park
    Race cars have been zipping down Eddyville Raceway Park's 1/8-mile drag strip ever since it opened in 1965, though you might have missed most of them if you blinked. Today, the IHRA-sanctioned track hosts 50 races per season, including weekend showdowns on Friday and Saturday nights. Oil-chugging crowds descend on the park for specialty events such as The Night of Fire, an annual showcase of funny cars, jet cars, and other vehicles that can reach speeds of more than 200 miles per hour. The 60-acre park is also home to a campground, a playground for kids, and a stable where motorbikes can sleep for the night.

  • Dan-D Farms
    The race's runners squirm and snort at the starting line. Ham Bone, Miss Piggy, and Pork Chop may just be piglets, but in the course of one fall season at Dan-D Farms, they'll transform into world-class swine sprinters. Approximately every two hours, they'll storm down a 100-yard improvised raceway, complete with a water obstacle. That's right––a water obstacle. "Our pigs," farm owner Debra Kearney confirms, "can swim." These riotous races are just one part of the lineup of events that overtakes Dan-D Farms each fall. Guests flock to this family-friendly affair to scramble over hay bales, feed wooly sheep, or test their sense of direction in one of two hay mazes. Each year for their maze, Debra and her family––including dad, Dan––devise a new design, but try to stick to things that are Iowa related. Past mazes have included the image of iconic Iowans such as native son John Wayne, and the ISU Cyclones and Iowa Hawkeyes mascots, as well as a reproduction of the American Gothic painting by Anamosa, Iowa–native Grant Wood. Each June, they begin marking the design into the 20-acre field, painting and flagging rows like boxes on grid paper, and then cut out the tunnels before the corn grows knee-high or develops the ability to cry. While this intricate, artistic design requires huge amounts of time and labor, less energy is spent carving out the separate haunted corn maze, where the fear-factor relies on simple twists and turns, instead of fancy effects or animatronics. "It's really not too hard," Debra says, "to scare people in a dark, dusty corn field."

  • Pine Knolls Country Club
    Originally sculpted into the Knoxville hillside in 1922 using teams of horses, slip scrapers, and dynamite, Pine Knolls Country Club's semiprivate course gently rises and falls across nine holes of rolling parkland terrain. The course still retains the same basic design of the prototype, featuring relatively open fairways and two ponds that come into play on four holes, placing a premium on confident strokes or 9-irons that double as snorkels. The country club also invites midsummer revelry with a swimming pool, a stately clubhouse with a full-service bar, and speedo-clad golf carts.

  • Grinnell Games
    For three days each year, the Grinnell Games takes over the central Iowa college town with a gauntlet of fun-focused, family-friendly sporting events and games. Many of the town's 15 miles of bicycle trails and more than 70 acres of public parks become the stage for races, bike races, and sports such as basketball and dodgeball. 5K runs, for instance, follow a gently looping path through this natural setting and historical downtown, while a 10K run at sunset circles around the lake at Rock Creek State Park. The difficult Warrior Run event challenges runners with mud pits and towering obstacles, but rewards them with a live music and beer party. Meanwhile, a scavenger hunt sends participants off on a wild chase throughout the town, where challenges range from solving puzzles and finding landmarks to memorizing the first three paragraphs of the 1976 zoning codes.
