The Bogey Golf Tour grants golfers a chance to take to the links and compete against fellow amateurs in tournaments scheduled at some of the finest courses in the London, Windsor, Detroit, and Kitchener/Waterloo areas. At each event, scratch golfers compete in the Birdie division, 0–15 handicaps square off in the Par division, and 16+ handicappers trade pinpoint approaches and sequined divot tools in the Bogey division. The top five finishers in each division receive prize money—which can be paid out in gift certificates or cash—and the Tour also holds prize competitions for longest drive, closest to the pin, and 3-iron jousting. The Tour publishes the results from each tournament in local newspapers, and players can chart the peaks and valleys of their careers on the Tour Members list, which compiles all of their tournament results. Along with providing an outlet for amateur golfers to exercise their long-suppressed competitive side, the Tour and its sponsors have raised $74,000 for various area charities since 2003.

Zap Zone's eight locations in Michigan and two locations in Canada each feature a unique combination of attractions?anything from bumper cars to the Jump Zone's cushioned obstacle course. In the laser-tag arena, both kids and adults demonstrate their teamwork skills by outscoring opponents in fast-paced games that take place inside black-lit mazes of neon-tinged hallways. Arcades also round out every location's attractions, tempting passersby to drop a few tokens on racing games and skee-ball, or a lot of tokens on the claw game filled with Faberg? eggs.

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.

Little stockinged feet pad madly across a spongy blocks painted in primary colors, then bound up stairs with an extra spring in each step. Inflatable walls and air-filled slides cushion exuberant children, who lack the grace, depth perception, and night-vision goggles that prevent adults from running into walls or going down slides backward. Xtreme Bounce Zone houses six of these inflatable playsets, where kids can jump and slide with the abandon of commuters riding their hoverboards over a traffic jam.

A 52-foot obstacle course challenges kids' dexterity, giving them tunnels to charge through and inclines to clamber up, while side-by-side slides offer limitless racing opportunities. Toddlers enjoy exclusive access to their own bounce zone, where they can jump without fear of outshining their older counterparts. As tots ricochet off surfaces around the inflatable playground, parents join in the fun or sip complimentary coffee.

The sunlight streaming through Glass Shack Studio's second-story windows sets shards of stained glass ablaze in a rainbow of hues, sending glints of colored light dancing across crafting tables. Shaped by specialized cutting tools and anchored by grout, these glass pieces will eventually form colorful mosaics like those displayed on the studio's chartreuse walls, which double as a gallery for local artisans. During workshops and classes, owner and founder Haley Alcock calls on her background in elementary and middle-school education to swiftly explicate the nearly 3,500-year-old art form, teaching students to assemble glittering landscapes, abstract designs, and portraits of their favorite light bulbs.

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.
