Dietz Creek Golf Range promotes on-course improvement with a multifaceted golf practice and service facility. Flush drives pierce the atmosphere above the course’s 300-yard driving range, where grass tees accommodate those who prefer a natural feel and turf mats cater to pacifistic 5-irons who consider divots barbaric. To fine-tune their short-game feel, players can chip balls at the short-game area or splash them out of the practice bunker. Inside, the darkened wonderland of Dietz’ Creek’s glo golf course invites guests to steer orbs across a black-lit circuit of rail-lined corridors teeming with obstacles including tricky ramps, a loopty loop, and swooping pterodactyls.

Slumber expert Roger Wardell staffs each of his Sleep Doctor Mattress Stores with knowledgeable employees who help to match shoppers with surfaces that complement their dozing styles. A full-size basic firm mattress by American Pedic ($219) supports stomach sleepers with memory foam, and Serta's twin-size Dura Pillowsoft ($499) cuddles tired muscles with inner springs and a 6-foot spoon.
Owner Janae Frantz founded her pedicure studio on the belief that “individual and community healing can be achieved simultaneously." In private pedicure rooms, she uses eco-friendly materials and vegan, organic SpaRitual products, which help make her environmental footprints smaller than a moccasin-clad hummingbird’s. She spreads these same conscientious business practices to people in her community by donating 10% of her spa’s proceeds to a different charity each month.
Massage and relaxation form the axis of Janae’s pedicures, and she folds her formal reflexology training into each session. Stringent sanitation practices are a hallmark of her treatments, with disposable foot files, nail files, and bowl liners bidding adieu after only one use.
