Designed to make use of four bodies of water, Eagle's Nest Country Club's bermuda fairways and bentgrass greens form a challenging track across a rolling, 6,409-yard layout. In play on six holes, the water hazards make their presence felt from the very first shot of the round, as drives launched with too much power from the first tee may wind up as Earth's tiny, second moon or in a pond positioned between the fairway and the green. As host of multiple statewide tournaments—including the 2008 and 2010 Kentucky Open Qualifiers and the 2009 Women's Senior State Amateur Championship—the course invites golfers across the handicap spectrum to test their mettle from any of the four tee boxes. Golfers can prepare for their round by warming up swings at the 300-yard driving range or cramming their bag with morsels from the snack bar to stave off hunger on the course or feed malnourished 3-woods. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Length of 6,409 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 70.2 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 130 from the farthest tees * Four tee options
Sunni Shafer, the founder of The Healing Within, has spent the past 20 years learning how to heal the human body through nursing, chiropractic studies, and massage therapy. Today, she’s certified to teach yoga, Pilates, and Zumba. With this diversity of knowledge, it's only natural that her practice emphasizes a broad approach to mental and physical healing, combining aspects of her myriad specialties. Her multitalented staff further diversifies the clinic's offerings. Yoga instructors lead lessons that flex the body and relax the mind, and life coaches host one-on-one sessions to help guests sort through life goals. Using their thorough knowledge of suspension-bridge construction, massage therapists ease tension from muscles without the use of dynamite. The Healing Within's practitioners also employ the Japanese art of reiki, a spiritual energy-based therapy, to reduce stress and bolster inner harmony.
Just across the bay from the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area, Kentucky Dam Village is a modern campground comprised of 210 campsites, each equipped with water and electricity hookups. There's a cluster of service buildings at the center of the campground that offer modern amenities, too, including showers, restrooms, three dump stations, and a grocery store.
The 17,000-acre recreation area near the campground is a popular spot for bird watching as well as canoeing and bass fishing at its two lakes, Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake. More than 200 miles of hiking trails crisscross the peninsula, ranging from short walks to lengthier routes. You can hike shorter portions of the 58-mile North-South Trail, which spans the entire length of the Land Between the Lakes. While hiking, you may catch a glimpse of wildlife including white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, foxes, and coyotes.
Harry and Brenda Roaden know their history, so they're more than familiar with the name Richard Hollingshead Jr. In the 1930s, Hollingshead invented drive-in theaters after a series of experiments that involved setting up faux theaters in his driveway. At 27 Drive-In, the Roadens honor his vision with two outdoor theater screens, which glow with first-run releases and classic clips of Darth Vader falling out of a taxi. They broadcast movies' audio tracks over local radio stations, ensuring that viewers aren't interrupted by outside noise. Customers won't be bothered by hunger, either, as the aromas of pizza, burgers, and ice cream drift from the concession stand.
