Players who knew Old Capital Golf Club back when it was founded in 1946 wouldn't recognize much about the course today. The name back then was Corydon Country Club, the course consisted of just nine holes, and it had no "greens" at all, at least in the modern sense. Each putting surface was made of sand, which meant players had to smooth over their ball marks, putting lines, and secret treasure Xs before heading to the next tee.
In spite of this early inconvenience, players kept returning to the course, enjoying its hilly terrain and the added challenge of Little Indian Creek. And the course has modernized over the years?a second nine holes were added in 1995, and the club also boasts a recently added three-hole par 3 course where youngsters and shorter-hitting beginners can find their fairway legs.

Surrounded by thick woods, lines of vines, rows of apple trees, and a garden lush with vegetables occupy 35 acres of Scout Mountain Winery. There, the Schad family has been handcrafting wines for more than two decades in styles such as blush, syrah, and chambourcin. Tucked away on the property, the family also oversees a quaint bed and breakfast inside a country house erected in the 1920s.
