  • Highland Rim Golf Course
    Highland Rim Golf Course showcases an awe-inspiring landscape that arcs over rolling hills, through dense forest, and past limestone bluffs and dramatic waterfalls. Designed by Jim Kirkley Sr. and Mary Mills—the 1963 U.S. Women’s Open champion—the course challenges players of all stripes with harrying rough that lies outside the zoysia-grass fairways and Scottish–style bunkers, recognized for their depth and the tartan patterns drawn into their sand by stranded golfers. Recently, all of the greens were converted to MiniVerde ultra-dwarf bermuda grass, a breed that stays healthy even through droughts, creating a hearty surface that keeps golf balls rolling true year-round. While navigating this emerald expanse, golfers can captain golf carts equipped with full-color GPS, allowing players to see three-dimensional course maps, keep score electronically, and message the clubhouse their food and drink orders or forewarn fellow golfers with a preemptive “fore” while out on the course. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 71 course Total length of 6,217 yards from the back tees Course rating of 70.2 from the back tees Course slope of 123 from the back tees Four sets of tees per hole

  • Lady-K Soaps
    Live goats scamper across the verdant vista at Lady-K Farm, a working dairy farm. Its owner, Karen, spends much of her days shepherding the farm's goats. She supplies bottles of their milk for local families and also uses it to create fresh-smelling bars of natural soap. In addition to wrapping bars in pristine packaging for wholesale, Karen has taught soap-making classes for 15 years to help others harness the milk's skin-softening benefits. Karen also sponsors an annual Goat Husbandry Conference to teach prospective goat owners how to care for the animals, especially when they dress in sheep’s fur in blundered searches for their own identities.

  • Belmont Mansion
    Walking through Belmont Mansion's Victorian-era plantation is like exploring an alternate history. The stories presented by the 2,000 artifacts that fill the 18 rooms are all true, but in place of the 19th-century South's traditionally male-dominated household, tour takers witness evidence of a plantation controlled, enlivened, and energized by a woman. After inheriting a fortune from her first husband, Adelicia Hayes Franklin Acklen Cheatham oversaw the construction of the mansion with her second husband, basing the style off an Italian villa and completing the project's first phase in 1853. Over the years it would change appearances as dramatically as a caterpillar on Halloween—sometimes by her hand and sometimes not. She commissioned a Prussian-born architect to expand and embellish the house six years after completion, and fled as the Civil War's Battle of Nashville destroyed most of the plantation's outbuildings, including the greenhouse, bear house, and zoo. After Adelicia sold her home in 1887, it transformed into a girl's school, then a girl's academy and junior college, and, in 1952, became part of the Belmont University campus. Today, Belmont Mansion is the largest house museum in Tennessee, inviting visitors to wander past cast-iron neoclassical statues in the gardens, to cross the fountain courtyard, and to study the original water tower and few remaining gazebos. Stoic marble busts, decorative boxes, and a four-post bed fill the interior's 10,000 square feet, alongside more than 120 works of art. During a themed art tour, which is not included with this Groupon, expert docent Mancil Ezell introduces visitors to these masterpieces, including two 400-year-old Flemish paintings. And for those bright-eyed visitors captivated by the surroundings, the staff also coordinates weddings, building on a tradition established when Adelicia married her third husband on the grounds in 1867.
