Picturesque landscaping and above-average speed greens mark the challenging 18 holes at Honeywell Golf Course. Established in 1944 as a private course situated on the elegant Honeywell estate, landscape architect Arthur Hills expanded the terrain through the family's formal gardens in 1980, blending the old and new styles as seamlessly as a miniskirt made from buffalo-head nickels. Bunkers shelter the undulating front nines from errant shots and scantily clad sunbathers, and emerald fairways wend through the old garden's flowering shrubs and trees toward short, tighter terrain. Swingers looking for a challenge will enjoy testing their club’s mettle on Hills's addition, confronting some of the only back-to-back par-3 holes in the state.
Doctor of Chiropractic Mark Sell believes that the body is its own best doctor.

For more than a quarter of a century, Dr. Sell has mastered hands-on techniques, such as adjustments and massage, that unblock nerve pathways, align spines, and escort the body along in its own natural path to recovery. These techniques require neither drugs nor surgery, and are tailored to each patient's unique needs.

With plenty of dental experience at hand and a full house of preventative toothcare solutions, Dr. Deakyne and his staff efficiently muster mighty teeth armies and ensure they're well equipped for any dentapocalypse. For the most thorough checkup, customers can visit the mouth wardens for a comprehensive dental exam, which includes a tooth-by-tooth analysis to search for cavities and other dental damage, as well as an oral-cancer screening using panoramic film and x-rays to expose less visible issues. Those opting for the standard exam also receive a meticulous mouth probing and are treated to a cleansing bath to blast grime from bite organs and burnish them to a state of brand-new brightness, like the moon after a fresh waxing.
Sycamore Golf Club is an island of shimmering emerald stamped onto an ocean of rolling beige. Once a wide-open farmland, the 100-acre parcel underwent major changes in 1961, when landscapers cleared away the wheat fields and cow communes to make way for the expansive 18-hole course. Today, the charm of the land remains thanks to a trio of ponds and two creeks that make their presence known on 15 holes, all of which are surrounded by newly planted tree groves.
True to the down-home feel of the area, Sycamore Golf Club is managed by the husband-and-wife team of Todd and Kathy Sandow. Kathy minds the pro shop and ushers twosomes and foursomes onto the first tee. And Todd, a PGA Professional, helps with club fittings and lessons for players of all levels.

A 9-hole, par 36 layout, Dogwood Glen Golf Course packs plenty of tee-to-green challenges in its 3,329-yard layout. The course opens with a 570-yard par-five—the first of two 550-plus-yard par-fives—letting golfers tee it high and swing freely to start their round. The course's five par-fours all measure more than 345 yards from the tips, making all but the longest-hitters golfers take a full swing with a wedge, short-iron, or curtain rod to make it to the green in regulation. With five tee options, the course caters to players of all abilities, and also provides alternative tee placements for those who want to play the course twice for an 18-hole round.
