  • Toad Valley Golf Course
    After selling his farm-equipment business in 1972, Dale W. Brady sought the counsel of his three sons to determine what should be done with the 200-acre plot of land originally used for testing out his new products. The three resolved to turn their land into a golf course. After a test green survived the winter and they earned the blessing of the region’s lawn-mower king, son Tom devised a layout from an aerial drawing and the team set to work, sculpting the rugged earth and opening the course in August 1973. A family-run enterprise ever since, the course bobs and weaves over 6,224 yards of rolling terrain that feature sparse tree lines, water hazards in play on five holes, and scenic views of the verdant landscape. Since its relatively humble beginnings, Toad Valley Golf Course has grown to include a full-length driving range and the Field of Greens Mini Links, an 18-hole miniature-golf course that challenges players with realistic putting surfaces, including bunkers, water hazards, and contoured greens. The range’s grass tees offer practice on an organic surface similar to course conditions, and the putting surfaces emulate the tricky slopes of real greens and even include rough, sand traps, and water features that add to the scenery and allow putters to bob for wayward golf balls. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 71 course Length of 6,224 yards from the farthest tees Course rating of 69.1 from the farthest tees Slope rating of 114 from the farthest tees Four tee options Link to scorecard

  • Terrace Hills Golf Course
    Since 1964, Terrace Hills Golf Course has invited golfers of all abilities to send balls soaring between the trees lining each of its 18 fairways. Though relatively short at 6,421 yards from the back tees, plenty of hazards lurk throughout the terrain, ready to spoil any oncomer's overconfidence. Water confronts play on eight of the holes, including holes 3, 4, 12, and 13, where a stream snakes its way through the course and enervates golfers by forcing them to play "Marco Polo" with lost balls. Terrace Hills promises golfers a free round on their next visit if their rounds take longer than 4.5 hours when they have tee times on weekdays before 2 p.m. and weekends or holidays. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 71 course Total length of 6,421 yards from the back tees Course rating of 68.8 from the back tees Course slope of 116 from the back tees Three sets of tees per hole

  • Triumph Martial Arts
    Matt White cinches his uniform with a fourth-degree black belt in tae kwon do, heads down to one of Triumph Martial Arts' three locations, and dishes up a fist-full of knowledge earned over 25 years of mat-slapping training. Recognized by the American Tae Kwon Do Association as the Regional Instructor of the Year in 2008 and 2011, Mr. White takes pride in combative victory and from passing those skills on. In keeping with the Association's instructional format, Mr. White and his battery of four instructors teach the martial art and philosophy of tae kwon do to kids and adults. Tiny Tigers sessions reach out to students as young as 4 years old, teaching them important values such as helping around the house, excelling at schoolwork, and how to survive a wildebeest stampede. Students as old as 55 have started with no experience, going on to successfully earn their black belts.

  • Pumpkinville Corn Maze
    Sack races, hayrides, campfires, and other autumn activities surround Pumpkinville Corn Maze, but those roaming the stalks might not be aware of them. Stretching up to 20 acres, the fourth-generation corn and soybean farm's maze often keeps adventurers twisting and turning for an hour, sometimes longer early in the season. Especially intrepid visitors can even enter the maze until 8 p.m., where only flashlights and the glowing moon guide them through the hushed labyrinth. Meanwhile, guests aged 10 and under can traverse the mini maze in about 15 minutes for just $1.
