Although conservation is important to the course managers at Cherry Creek Golf Club, it never comes at the expense of challenging play. Throughout the scenic 18-hole course, golfers will come face-to-grass with meticulously planned layouts that incorporate ponds, bunkers, and vistas bordered by gentle rolling hills. The first two holes epitomize the club’s course design; hole one's curving terrain and four sand bunkers require precise aim to avoid, and hole two's flowing stream adds an extra level of difficulty to an already nerve-testing approach. Course managers also take care to protect the natural setting and wildlife that inhabit the grounds, taking eco-friendly measures such as building blue bird nesting houses and improving water quality by reducing the use of harmful chemicals. Their efforts have earned the course Audubon International's Cooperative Sanctuary certification, an honor awarded to a select group of earth-minded golf courses around the country.

A pair of massive par 5s bookends the course at Glengarry Golf Links. The first hole stretches to 564 yards, and the final hole reaches 555 yards, making both more than 100 yards longer than any other hole on the course. Between them, golfers can't just cruise, either: six lakes creep into play on seven different holes, and 20 catcher's mitt bunkers lie in wait to devour shots that run astray. Challenging as the course is, it surrounds visitors in beauty by weaving through tall native grasses and fescue mounts amid the foothills of the Laurel Mountains. Plus, 50-yard-wide fairways create spacious landing zones for balls and for players who opt for jet packs over golf carts.

The Madison Club’s 18-hole, championship course develops over gently rolling hills and winds through trees for a layout engulfed in a spectacular setting that incorporates the natural landscape into course play. Multiple water hazards challenge the golfer, as highlighted on the interesting par 3 17th, a hole that forces golfers to carry a short-iron tee shot over open water and has been lauded as one of western Pennsylvania’s best public holes by both the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the fish that cheer on golfers from the green-protecting pond. Cut in to the rolling hills, holes are bordered with slopes and mounds that redirect errant shots back on to the carpet-like fairways. After a day at the links, guests can unwind with a light meal from the course restaurant or toast to the memory of broken golf tees with a drink from its full-service bar.
In 1969, aficionados from six midwestern states formed the Midwest UFO Network—MUFON for short—to improve and organize their growing reports of UFO sightings. Now known as the Mutual UFO Network, MUFON's more than 3,000 members have formed chapters throughout the United States and various countries around the globe.
More than 900 of those members are trained field investigators who interview UFO witnesses and compose written accounts of sightings. Some of those findings, as well as the latest research findings, are showcased at MUFON's annual International UFO Symposium, which rotates through the United States and is sometimes held on Earth's second moon. MUFON runs similar events throughout the year, and prints more info about sightings and UFO science in its monthly journal.
