Countryside Golf Course's 18-hole layout rolls across 6,366 yards of the Iowa countryside, but it's the first 574 yards that immediately catch golfers' attention. The course challenges players from the moment they stake their tree slivers into the soil of the first tee box, where they look out onto the course's hardest-rated hole: a 574-yard par 5 that doglegs to the right towards a green guarded by sand and water on either side. The difficult opener sets the tone for the rest of the course, where water comes into play on seven holes—six on the front nine—and all but one hole features at least one greenside bunker.

After their round, players who have not spoiled their appetite by grazing on the course's lush bent grass can head toward the clubhouse for a post-round meal or drink. At the wooden u-shaped bar, guests can crack open a beer and refuel with hot dogs and sandwiches.

Aches Away Therapeutic Massage and Skin Wellness's licensed massage therapist relaxes bodies with one of six massage modalities, tailored to address each client’s individual needs. Swedish massage, the most popular technique, uses gentle pressure and soothing strokes to promote total relaxation, while deep-tissue massage applies firm pressure to taut tissue, uncoiling tightly wound muscles and helping to relieve pain from past unicycle-jousting injuries. Prenatal massage eases lower-back tension associated with human incubation, and the raindrop technique splashes essential oils onto skin to promote tranquility. The relaxing manipulations of lymphatic therapy cause a drowsy lymphatic system to eagerly awaken like a shadow hunter on a sunny day. During a hot-stone massage, heated stones rest atop sore surfaces to melt pain and stress into a collected lava puddle. Along with signature massage services, staff members also provide waxing services, custom facials, and chemical peels.

Allison Gonzalez spent two decades as a ballerina, and more than half of that time using Pilates as a cross-training method. Eventually, Allison earned her instructor certification and began teaching Pilates professionally, utilizing her dancer's grace on Pilates mats and reformers. Nowadays, she helms a studio--Purely Pilates--that stays true to Joseph Pilates' original vision.

Joe, who was a boxer and gymnast, developed his exercise regime in the 1920s with the goal of strengthening the body's "powerhouse"--which includes the abs, lower back and butt, but not the coal furnace at the back of our skulls. His roster of more than 500 exercises, plus his five signature pieces of resistance equipment, continue to influence Purely Pilates' intimate classes today--regardless of which fully-certified instructor leads them and if they are group-style or private lessons.
