Tangle Oaks Golf Club stretches 6,382 yards from the tips, but its length doesn't characterize the challenges presented. It's the details that make the course stand out, sometimes with a splash. On the par-three 13th, golfers must carry a high-lofted tee shot over a pond in order to land on the signature island green, which leaves little room for error. However, many fairways are sparsely lined with mature trees and are free of sand traps, providing more forgiving landing zones for errant shots or personal helicopter golf carts.
Maxwell Municipal Golf Course's 18-hole layout provides a challenge for players of all ability levels. A lake threatens approach shots on several holes, and a steam snakes along and across fairways, forcing players to choose clubs wisely. The course plays at 6,129 yards from the back tees and 5,031 from the forward tees; be sure to hit the driving range and chipping area before your round to warm up. Grab a soda and a candy bar at the turn for a burst of energy going into the back nine.
Prime Time Family Entertainment Center brings a chic, modern touch to the traditional bowling alley. Angular leather couches and sleek lighting set the scene for competition on the facility's smooth bowling lanes, which feature large screens that hover above and broadcast sports and entertainment for players. The lights drop and the pins become glowing targets during glow bowl, and a pool table invites bowlers to take a break with a game of nine-ball or stripes and solids between rounds. Prime Time is BYOB.
