At Highland Walk Golf Course, Bermuda grass fairways and greens arch over 6,407 yards of steep hills studded by tall Georgia pines for a challenging 18-hole layout. Throughout the round, the course’s dramatically undulating terrain gives way to sweeping views of the countryside as well as numerous blind shots, giving an advantage to players whose golf bags double as periscopes. Georgian course architect Denis Griffith’s creative use of the terrain is on full display at the signature 17th hole, where golfers drive the ball from terraced tee boxes and over the shadowy, intimidating depths of a ravine. Though the elevation changes place precise shot making at a premium, the course features relatively open fairways and greens, providing ample landing areas for aggressive drives and caddies airlifted in for emergency putt-reading services.

Sixty-three pounds. That’s the state record weight of the heaviest fish ever reeled in from the waters of Fish Tales Guide Service’s chartered fishing trips. Angler Wayne White and his team of experienced guides take groups onto Lake Hartwell to capture stripers, largemouth bass, crappie, and catfish. “I’d be surprised if anybody knows more about Lake Hartwell and catching striper then Wayne White,” wrote one participant after a day on the water.
Groups depart from Portman Marina and climb into boats outfitted with advanced electronics and fishing equipment. Guides bring along all the necessary supplies, including tackle, bait, and a cheering section that rejoices when anyone makes a catch. Participants are encouraged to bring snacks, drinks, and a cooler large enough to take home the day’s catch.
At Upstate Equestrian Center, professional trainer and coach Jamie Grant teaches the importance of proper horse care in tandem with the development of safe, polished riding skills. She adapts her English Hunt Seat Equitation lessons for students ranging from advanced riders participating in private lessons to young children taking part in the center’s Tiny Tots and Pony Pals classes. Curriculum in the Hunter/Jumper/Equitation program takes place on the well-appointed grounds, where indoor and outdoor arenas, a jump course, and landscaped pastures provide a variety of riding spaces. Onlookers can watch the action as they cheer on family, friends, or that one dog that still thinks it’s a horse.
For eight years, Kim Kelley was in charge of organizing consignment events for the Upstate. In 2012, she decided to incorporate some holiday spirit into her planning and created the first-annual Holly Jolly Holiday Fair. At the Fair, visitors of all ages ring in the season with Santa, Manual Holiday - the elf, and performers, while local artisans, crafters, and food vendors dole out their goods. The sound of merry music rings through the gathering, and aromas of fresh-cut pine trees fill the air with extra holiday cheer as opposed to just new-car smell.
