Opened in 1960, Union Hills Golf Course's 18-hole layout presents a tale of two nines. On the front nine, golfers can swing freely—and find their rhythm—on a mostly open layout, easing their way into the round. The tone shifts on the back nine, where fairways tunnel through dense groves of trees that have grown tall in their half-century of maturation. Adding to the difficulty, water hazards come into play on four holes throughout the round.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
_Adventure Valley is the closest 10-zipline tour to St. Louis, just 30 minutes from downtown, and only 20 minutes from South and West County. We also have a paintball park (opening soon) with two more ziplines over a field for scenario play—the only one of its kind in the country! _
What is the experience customers can expect?
_Start your experience with a thrilling dune buggy ride up a 180 foot high ridge, where you will begin the zipline tour on a "baby zip" to get you started. Then advance to the faster lines in the trees. Cross a 20-ft high plank bridge to line 9, where you will zip down at up to 50 mph! _
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
_We are a family of 4 who love paintball and the outdoors. We fell in love with this beautiful 90-acre farm that boasts a natural spring. Our zipline tour and paintball park preserve its natural beauty while giving guests a unique outdoor adventure. _
What do you love most about your job?
_We love the fun that Adventure Valley brings to our guests. Watching their faces as they zip through the trees is a blast. No one leaves without abundant smiles. (And we like to sneak out and ride the lines ourselves from time to time). _
Five Star Pool Care makes pool maintenance go swimmingly with round-the-summer care for residential pools. When it’s time to open for the season, technicians travel to homes to uncover resting pools, including removing any stains, assembling equipment, and filling them back up with chilled champagne. During the dog days, maintenance experts keep backyard oases in top shape by vacuuming the pool and performing full inspections. As fall approaches and the temperature drops, closing services prep the water for the winter months by lowering the water level and adding shock and algaecide to keep lagoon monsters from hibernating inside.
