Golf legend Arnold Palmer, known in the cleated world as the King and winner of the PGA Tour's Lifetime Achievement Award, as well as a member of the World Golf Hall of Fame, designed the undulating ryegrass fairways at Hiddenbrooke Golf Club. Ranked as one of Golf Digest’s Readers’ Choice Top 50 Public Courses in 2009, the course unfolds scenic views of rolling hills as players give their balls detailed directions, hand them compasses and trail mix, and send them hiking toward the pin. The 12th hole’s pin challenges orbs with one of the toughest locations on the course, and eight sand bunkers guard three sides of the 18th hole’s green. After working up a sweat, swingers can remove their gloves and Kevlar vests and celebrate or commiserate their score at The Grille, where diners gaze out over the greens while munching sandwiches and quaffing beer.

Napa Entertainment & Sports Center houses an array of fun, competitive, and communal activities that can be enjoyed alone or with friends. Each punch on the five-punch pass allows children to spend 60 minutes playing with gravity in one of the five jump houses. Spheroid-swatters can volley for dominance on the ping-pong table or step into the batting cages, where the pitch speed varies from 35–90 miles per hour, and numerous pitch types keep batters guessing, just as a real pitcher keeps batters guessing by using accents from many different regions of France. Simulated competition thrives on the virtual links of the golf simulator or on the flat-screen TVs, where Wii and Xbox 360 consoles display a variety of games to help improve hand-eye coordination and decrease self-inflicted pokes in the eye.
