In the drudges of winter, cooped-up golf enthusiast often find themselves wishing that they could just transport to a golf course somewhere in a warmer clime. Wormholes probably won't be invented for another six months or so, but the golf simulators at Tee Box Indoor Golf offer something of a solution. Each apparatus consists of a hitting bay and a large screen, where a computer projects high-definition imagery of an actual golf course, from the hole lengths and scenery down to the flagstick bending in the virtual wind. As they smack golf balls into the screen, players must strategize and deal with the consequences of mishits, just as they would on a real course. They choose from 70 world-famous courses?such as California's Pebble Beach, Kapalua in Hawaii, or St. Andrews in Scotland?and enjoy the convenience of never having to pay the oft-exorbitant greens fees or break up with a clingy caddy. Lessons with teaching pros Nicholas Harwood and Mike Masten are also available.

There's a lot to do at Georgetown Country Club, but it's all on an intimate, inviting scale. With eight par-three holes and one par four, the club's nine-hole executive course lets golfers get in a round and still have plenty of time for scorecard origami. In the summer, kids cannonball from diving boards and swimmers speed through eight lap lanes at the outdoor pool, while others sunbathe or lounge under huge blue canopies. A recent addition to outdoor courts for tennis, sand volleyball, and tetherball is a gaga ball court. In this madcap, airborne take on dodgeball, big groups of players use their hands to smack a lightweight ball at other players without being hit themselves.

Senior Master Dean L. Wainwright—a 6th Dan master in both tae kwon do and hap ki do—builds his team of instructors not only from other decorated masters, but also those students whose exceptional dedication and skill might help their peers learn the martial arts. Assistant instructor Ian Bejster, for instance, uses his massive talent and youthful stature to help educate Mini and Little Ninjas as young as 3 years old. Together, this team reaches out to students of all ages, engaging them in learning the swift, graceful kicks of tae kwon do or the soft, circular redirections of hap ki do, the only known method for fighting a revolving door.

Though the invention of the hoverboard has thus far eluded modern science, Extreme Aqua Sports offers an equally fun alternative. On local lakes, thrill seekers strap their feet into flyboards, which use plumes of water to achieve liftoff. Attached by a pressurized umbilicus to a modified jet ski, the board can send riders high above the surface or cut through the water like a genetically modified otter.
