Operating out of the historic Defiance general store built around 1898, Katy Bike Rental's owners Todd and Robin White showcase their pride in local heritage as they equip visitors for voyages down the Katy Trail State Park. Originally the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, the line has since been converted into a state park whose calm gravel trail winds through lush forest alongside the Missouri River. Cyclists set out aboard the store's fleet of hybrid mountain bikes, tandem bikes, or comfort cruisers, each with optional attachments such as child carts to tow kids. They then pedal past old railroad signals and between man-made stone walls, and follow cliffs running along the river. Additionally, Todd organizes events along the trail, such as wine and movie nights, at local wineries and breweries or, when it’s a flannel kind of day, log-rolling contests with local lumberjacks.

Ellen of Ellen Baehr Equestrian has been interacting with horses for as long as she’s been able to walk like them. As the training force behind her namesake business, Baehr began riding and competing at the tender age of 4. In the decades since, she’s sat in the saddle for thousands of hunts and jumps—experience that she now applies during lessons on the 31-acre plot that comprises Gold Farm.

Baehr’s approach is simple and sincere: for every lesson—regardless of the student’s age or ability—she encourages riders to play the role of teammate to their horse. In doing so, riders often experience meaningful improvement that can prepare them for both serious competitions or casual rides past the drive-thru windows of nearby fast-food restaurants.

Golf Headquarters attracts golfers of all stripes with three courses, including the 18-hole executive Pheasant Run Golf Course, an 18-hole pitch-and-putt course, and an 18-hole miniature-golf course. The par 57 Pheasant Run Golf Course challenges players to send orbs spinning past bunkers and water hazards even after the sun has set, when lights illuminate the zoysia fairways for golfers who haven’t yet acquired an owl familiar to guide them through the night. When winter blows in, players can take to the driving range, where 12 of the 40 hitting stations are covered and heated, and aim balls toward raised target greens. At the clubhouse, a 2,500-square-foot pro shop nestles alongside the Roost, where guests can perch at a horseshoe-shaped oak bar or rest by a gas fireplace on the patio as they drink in views of golfers sprinting across the finish line at the 18th hole.

More casual players can tackle the pitch-and-putt course, where balls must cross distances of 40–100 yards to reach the full-size greens, or hone their short game at the miniature-golf course, dotted with serene ponds, streams, and waterfalls.

At The Falls Golf Club, lush zoysia grass blankets challenging fairways populated by more than 200 mature trees, saved or relocated onto the course, as well as miniature lakes and fairway-splitting creeks. The doglegs and sand traps were designed by Ed Schultz, Terry Houser, and Bob Saur. Poorly aimed balls splash into placid water or tumble over the course’s half-dozen waterfalls, and the slopes of two-tiered greens can send them rolling away from pins. The course’s PGA professionals await players hoping to perfect their form.

Adjacent to the championship course, the 20-acre recreation center invites golfers to warm up at a practice facility with a buffet of practice options such as bermuda-grass tees, artificial mats, and a 6,000-square-foot putting green. Nearby, an 18-hole miniature golf course beckons putting enthusiasts, and the pitching machines in seven batting cages launch baseballs and softballs with precision in the hopes of one day pitching for the Cardinals.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course
  • Length of 6,510 yards
  • Course rating of 71.0

The Stallion and The Colt are the two courses at Crescent Farm Golf Club, the former being an 18-hole titan that spans more than 7,000 yards, and the latter a 9-hole, par-30 executive course. At The Stallion, golfers test their meddle amid heavily wooded areas, native grasses, and a dozen water hazards. The course's signature hole?the par-three eighth?features a tee shot that must clear a tree-lined pond. The architect behind the main course must have had a flair for the dramatic, as both nines close with the course's two most-difficult holes.

At The Colt course, small greens make approach shots a challenge, compensating for the modest length of certain holes. But while the two layouts offer different golfing experiences, they both weave through gently rolling terrain that makes walking or pushing a cart full of bunker sand across either course a breeze.
