Shadowbrooke Golf Course weaves through the Minnesota countryside to form a scenic par 71 layout envisioned by architect Joel Goldstrand, whose designs are sculpted throughout the state. The course eases golfers into the round on the older and more forgiving front nine, letting swings find their stride before a more treacherous second act that winds through tunnels of mature trees. Shadowbrooke's pro shop keeps hot dogs, candy, and drinks on hand for hungry golfers, as well as gloves, apparel, and balls for those who fear they may not be able to keep every shot in play or prevent their orbs from being smuggled away by a local juggler.

Shadowbrooke Golf Course's rates fluctuate during the day and throughout the week.

The Minnesota Saddlebred Horse Association unites stables across the state, showcasing the diversity of the american saddlebred, as well as training future equestrians with individually tailored riding lessons. After arriving in long pants and sturdy, low-heel shoes, riders don helmets as instructors commence half-hour equine adventures to acquaint students with an agreeable saddlebred, whose manner and relaxed gait are perfect for human accompaniment and a marked advantage in "act casual" situations. The average lesson covers mounting and dismounting, walking and trotting, rein control, and how to properly engage with the horse. In addition, riders will spend time learning how horses think and react in common situations. The MSHA's participating stables open on evenings and weekends for man-to-beast interactions after school or work; customers should note that Lear Stables in Hastings is not heated.

Nearly a decade ago, Rich Pawelk and his wife Terri Traen planted 300 apple trees on their 155-acre property, thus starting LuceLine Orchard. Since then, the land's harvest has grown to include seven varieties of apples, plus pumpkins, squash, and six acres of grape vineyards. But the rolling hills and produce-filled fields were too much for Rich and Terri to enjoy by themselves, so they decided to share their land with the community. People can explore the orchard?s trails by foot, bike, horse, or hovercraft, and take along binoculars for bird-watching stops. The orchard?s ?Mess Hall? cooks up Minnesota-made brats, burgers, hot and dogs cut in apple cider, as well as housemade apple slaw. Pumpkins of all sizes and apples plucked from the land transform into pies that customers can bring with them when they leave. After their food fix, guests can wander over towards the corn maze, petting zoo, kiddie train rides, and hay mountain.

White barns and rail fences sit atop the deep green hills and trees of the Minnetrista countryside, where Giddy Up Stables's trainer Christina Carl helps students form safe and understanding relationships with horses. Christina's teaching methods extend from the love and respect she has for her horses, and she focuses on teaching students balanced riding techniques. During lessons, students learn to control horses with their lower bodies while also making sure that the horses are confident and relaxed in their jobs. Giddy Up Stables hosts lessons for beginners in English and Western styles, and it also welcomes flocks of children throughout the summer for interactive camps. Riders visiting Giddy Up Stables must wear long pants, riding boots, and a helmet with colors that coordinate with their horse’s hoof manicure.

If rain suddenly interrupts a round at Timber Creek Golf Course, players can take shelter at an unusual spot: the creek. A pair of wooden covered bridges straddle the creek at different crossing points, adding rustic charm to an 18-hole, championship-length course that wends through mature trees and hilly terrain. The layout also encompasses another novel feature: a double green that lets players intimidate the group on the other side of the green with their putting or choreographed dance skills.
