Dallas Athletes Racing's director, Dan Jones, likes to pepper his runs with fun. He creates themed events throughout the year, starting with a St. Patrick's Day Triathlon and culminating with a costumed Monster Triathlon held around Halloween. He hosts a load of events, but one of his favorites is the Wounded Warrior Half Marathon and 10k—an event that raised over $60,000 to benefit military charities in 2013 alone. Whatever type of event he's organizing, Dan waits at the finish line to witness the runners experience "the satisfaction of completing the event and enjoying themselves."

Eisenhower Yacht Club (EYC) gathers boat lovers to share their passion for and knowledge of runabouts, cruisers, houseboats, and sailboats. Members of EYC have access to factory-trained mechanics and upkeep services at the Eisenhower Marina, which is nestled in the lush greenery of Eisenhower State Park along Lake Texoma.
Boat-less patrons can visit the harbor and rent a pontoon, which holds up to 10 people for on-water parties, sightseeing, or fishing. To take in the jagged shoreline marked by numerous inlets, visitors can also rent a bicycle and cruise bike paths before stopping at the beach for a picnic or a swim. EYC also sells everything from boats and yachts to small watercraft and boat slips that fit under boat evening gowns.
Originally a 9-hole course upon its opening in 1978, community-owned The Bridges at Claresholm expanded into an 18-hole course in 2005 after designer Les Furber spent four years expertly crafting a back nine. Four tee boxes and attachable Gadget arms precede each hole, allowing patrons to adjust their distance to the green and driving angle to better avoid obstacles such as 12 water hazards. The Bridges at Claresholm also employs golf expert Lyle Broderson to offer private, semiprivate, or group lessons to golfers looking to make improvements, and hosts tournaments and male, female, and gopher leagues. Additionally, an on-site pro shop supplies participants with essential gear such as balls, clubs, and golf-suitable clothing, and Putter's Restaurant & Catering in the facility's clubhouse satiates visitors with weekly specials such as the Friday-night all-you-can-eat fish fry.

The Footprints of Charity Golf Tournament sends teams of four driving and putting over the gently rolling hills of Stone Creek Country Club as they raise funds for humanitarian, educational, and spiritual aid at home and abroad. Holding to the tenets of four-man-scramble-style play, the tournament snakes over 18 holes as golfers take turns shooting from the best of four lies or combining powers to hit a single ball at the exact same time. Chipping and putting through the verdant par 72 course, players navigate a gauntlet of sand traps, doglegs, and narrow fairways en route toward a challenging 18th hole hugged by a creek and capped with a rolling green. In addition to the four-man scramble, tournament contestants are entered in longest drive and closest-to-the-pin challenges, which reward excellence in a single aspect of the game, just like college football's bounciest onsite kick trophy.
