Adrian Country Club's course features nine holes—a majority presenting long and narrow fairways—while some curl devilishly around the edge of a water trap. Regardless of shape or length, each hole boasts two sets of tees that offer varying angles and challenges, so the course can be played through twice for a full 18-hole outing. Before, after, or between rounds of golf, the clubhouse provides a charming spot in which to rest and appreciate the beauty of the rolling green grass and ponds (as opposed to the challenges they present). "We have a beautiful deck that overlooks the course," notes the manager, offering it as a place to recuperate after a game or practice your Statler and Waldorf impression with a friend.

Since the first fairway drive in 1998, Northern Links Golf Course has presented players with nine holes of challenging and enjoyable golf. On the course's signature second hole, a 215-yard par 3, players must steer clear of the out-of-bounds road on the left and take necessary precautions to avoid a sunburned ball in order to conquer the island-style green. The 3,176-yard course offers a great opportunity for walking, though carts are also available.

Course at a Glance:

  • Nine-hole, par 36 course
  • Total length of 3,176 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 35 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 113 from the back tees

A labyrinthine stream runs alongside nearly every fairway and green of Rocky Run Golf Course's 18-hole course, which blankets 6,434 yards of relatively flat terrain. A basic starting hole eases players into the round, offering a tame preamble to the treacherous second hole, a 406-yard par 4 where slow-starting swings and groggy drivers may struggle to elude a widening stream that occupies the very middle of a split fairway. The artful integration of watery avenues returns on the par 5 16th—the course's most challenging hole—where a creek switches back and forth across the fairway like a snake in striking position, fully crossing the short-grass corridor five times before pooling just off the front of the green. After their reckoning with aquatic interlopers, golfers can explore Rocky Run's immense clubhouse, where a well-stocked pro shop keeps players in the latest on-course duds and a full-service bar and restaurant lets players toast to the tragic passing of their favorite golf ball.Course at a Glance:

Louise Connolly spent six years touring five continents with Lord of the Dance. For most of that time, the two-time Irish Dance World Champion from Dundalk, Ireland played the female leading role as Saoirse, the virtuous, white-frocked dancer who tries to save the hero from the temptations of pork rinds. As this epic production crisscrossed the globe, Louise became a cultural ambassador for Irish dance, to which she is now a certified teacher with the Irish Dance Commission in Dublin.

At her dance studio, both soft- and hard-shoe dance is taught to boys and girls, children and adults. Depending on the type of jig performed, students slip on lace-up ghillies or hard shoes with fiberglass tips and heels. While maintaining a statuesque torso, the dancers kick, tap, shuffle, and twirl in solo dances or céilí routines that contain up to 16 people. For toes that desire reward beyond the occasional jello soak, the studio can prepare them for competitions called feis, which judge choreography and execution at regional, national, and world levels.
