At Silver Spur Splat Paintball, players can face off on open terrain or dart from tree to tree on the forest field. Other teams, meanwhile, wage friendly battle on a speedball field, where inflatables shelter combatants from incoming paintballs and airdropped insults. Referees stand by to monitor the action, inspect equipment, and ensure fair play. Aside from facilitating these games—which can also include Airsoft matches—Silver Spur Splat Paintball's staff mans a pro shop, where they sell gear such as custom paintball markers.
The showroom at Baby's 1st hosts a menagerie of baby toys, gifts, accessories, and parental aids that cater to new, expecting and seasoned parents and their children. Expecting mothers can delight in the soft, cradling embrace of the Medela Abdominal Maternity Support ($24.95), which provides back relief by supporting wombs of all sizes, or slumber deeply while embracing a hypoallergenic upper body ergonomic pillow ($44.95), designed to satiate a primal need to hug large sacks of grain. Toddlers can unwind with a variety of colorful wooden puzzles, such as the wood puzzle boat ($9.95) or puzzle train ($9.95), while infants can stay stylish with the child's sheepskin aviator hat ($38.95), which warms tiny noggins or large melons. A natural Moses basket ($49.95) cradles children safely in shades of pink, blue, sage, or ecru gingham, while the bug net system for cribs and strollers ($19.95) emulates the excitement of tropical living.
Just as the name implies, Farmer’s Daughter Bakery and Cafe is family-owned-and-operated, serving up fresh portions of grains, soups, and salads straight from the garden. Every item on the menu is made in-house, and all processed foods are told to take a hike to see if a natural activity will help cleanse their system. Grab a friend or scurvy-plagued 18th-century merchant-sailor and double up lunchtime feasts with a bowl of the daily homemade-soup special coupled with a green salad (a $6 value each).

Though lush fairways and gently undulating greens have replaced the acres of cornfields at Country Oaks Golf Club, quaint reminders of the course’s bucolic past are everywhere. A tall white silo stands sentry at the first tee box, greeting golfers as they head out for their round. A white picket fence proves a common sight as it cordons off the 140-acre plot from the surrounding farmland and prevents trespassing by ghostly baseball players.
First tee shots on the 514-yard, par 5 opening hole will need to clear a small pond—an early introduction to the water scattered throughout the rest of the course. In fact, 4 out of the first 5 tee shots will need to clear water, and 11 feature water prominently at some point. On the watery, 300-yard 18th hole, the long shadow of the old silo welcomes golfers back in as they sink their final putts and head into the Dairy Barn, now home to the course pro shop.
