The course at Sauganash Golf Club showcases two eras of golf-course design: it features a front nine built in 1924 by A. W. Tillinghast, prolific designer of such legendary courses as Bethpage Black and Baltusrol, and a back nine built 47 years later. This baby of cross-generational construction challenges golfers of all skill levels, as players must try a wide spectrum of golf shots to get through the holes spanning 6,194 yards across the heavily wooded land adjacent to the St. Joseph River. The front nine demand precise drives down tight fairways, and the back nine require a firm handle on distance to avoid penalty strokes for winding up in the river or any one of the Great Lakes.

To Mary Valdez, there’s more to massage than just touch. The massage therapist believes that education should augment every bodywork treatment, and that it’s her job to help her clients understand why they’re experiencing discomfort and how they can prevent it. Of course, touch is crucial, and Mary draws upon her many certifications in Swedish, hot-stone, and shell massage to create a tailored service that offers a soothing antidote to each client's chief complaint. In a dimly lit room, Mary provides her clients with pillows, bolsters, and a heating blanket, and conducts her massages using heated oils and lotions to provide maximum comfort and relief.

Sculpted into the landscape just north of the Pokagon State Park, Country Meadows Golf Resort utilizes the area's hilly terrain on the 18-hole, par-72 course to challenge golfers with narrow fairways and numerous waterways. Meticulously maintained by superintendent Chris Rudolph and general manager Joe Rudolph, the course's layout explodes with vibrant colors and lush playing surfaces. Sunlight glints off the cerulean surfaces of the course?s plentiful water hazards, which flank the fourth and ninth holes. A stream guards the third hole?s putting green, demanding that golfers sheath their jousting sticks while building a drawbridge to reach the pin.
