When the automobile rolled into town, horses began moving out of cities and into the serene countryside, where they’d no longer have to memorize street signs and obey traffic signals. But even before this pilgrimage, Spring Creek Farm had been offering bucolic respite to weary steeds, continuing what is now a 200-year-long tradition of training and caring for all equine-kind. Today, the historic farm operates under the guidance of owner and director Lorraine Clark, who lives onsite to tend to her 24-stall barn. Each day, Lorraine puts the horses out to roam the nearby fields and streams as well as the well-lit indoor arena—a facility equipped with Perma-Flex footing designed specifically to prevent accidents and encourage breakdance battles between horses and their riders.

The 18-hole course at Chapel Hill guides golfers along lush fairways framed by dense tree lines and confronted by water on 11 holes. Six holes—beginning with No. 1—demand precise course-management skills when navigating shots around the stream that cuts through their fairways, demanding that players lay up, muscle their shots over, or swap their golf ball out for a beach ball. Laid end-to-end, the course measures 6,089 yards from the blue tees, the farthest of four available for play on each hole.
