Working at the 1996 Summer Olympics and the 1994 World Cup are a few of the sporting events on camp director Shelly Watkins's resumé, which she draws on to run a summer camp for kids of all ages. A mother herself, she believes in giving each child individual attention, recognition, and respect, rewarding campers with high-fives and compliments for jobs well done. Together with assistant camp director Cortney Spiegel, she runs fun-packed day camps focused on arts, sports, field trips, and specialty programs. Professional counselors work with pintsize Pacinos in the Lights, Camera, Action class to make short films; kick off Nerf-themed sports events in the Nerf Extravaganza class; or venture out to bowling, movies, rollerblading, and laser tag during the Mega Adventure Field Trip. Shelly and her friendly crew also lead precamp and aftercamp activities for early-morning and evening supervision, and junior camp for campers aged 4¬–7 or 10-year-olds having their pre-preteen life crisis.

Over his 30-year tenure teaching golf, founder Mark Reason has established Reason's Golf Academy locations in Michigan and Florida to spread the wisdom of his Ferris-wheel-swing technique. This coaching philosophy—designed to build swings that travel on a controlled, vertical axis rather than in a less-dependable merry-go-round motion—serves as the unifying force in all of the academy's instructional programs and as the building block for the development of a consistent, correctable, and windshield-friendly swing. Instructors use golf-simulator and swing-analyzer technology to scrutinize imperfect motions and weighted, molded-grip clubs and other training aids to guide clients toward proper technique. To further optimize patrons' pin-hunting prowess, the Academy offers club-fitting services, which pair clients with the clubs or modified pool noodles that best fit their unique swing profile.

The 2012 golf season at Mulberry Hills Golf Club marked 50 years since architect Hank Clayton unveiled his verdant brainchild, a celebration that showcases the course?s maturation of ancient oak trees and tangled heather that now engulf the site's 188 meadowed acres. The natural habitat invites all players, from greenhorns to green-jacket holders, to take on the 18-hole excursion that covers 6,635 yards of pristine fairways, well-kempt greens, and vibrant flowers that border playable areas. As players captain their 2012 Yamaha golf carts equipped with a 12V outlet for phones and a GPS device over the terrain, they encounter a gauntlet of obstacles that attempts to thwart drives, putts, and 3-iron swordfights. The par 3, 155-yard fourth hole presents a difficult forced carry over water onto a peninsula green, the most challenging of the four holes featuring shots over water. The course superintendants keep rounds moving with a pace-of-play program that ensures rounds last 4.5 hours or less, leaving plenty of daylight for sunbathing golf balls or knitting a skirt from collected divots. After the round, players can celebrate their dominance over nature at Hank's Place Bar & Grill with a menu of American fare, draft beers, and free WiFi.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 71 course

  • Total length of 6,635 yards from the back tees

  • Course rating of 70.9 from the back tees

  • Course slope of 122 from the back tees

  • Four sets of tees per hole

Designed in 1929 by Michigan Golf Hall of Famer Wilfred Reid—a British immigrant who studied golf-equipment design under Tommy Armour's father, outdueled Gene Sarazen to win the 1924 Augusta Open, and crafted a multitude of courses on both sides of the Atlantic—Bald Mountain's championship golf course spans 6,624 yards of undulating, timber-lined fairways. Though sand traps are sparse throughout the round, the layout counters with obstacles including greenside swales, grassy thickets, and deranged windmills invading from the nearest mini-golf course. Well-manicured greens sit at the end of each hole, providing a fair, true roll for par-seeking putters.

Novice players may prefer Bald Mountain's nine-hole executive course, where seven par-3s ease beginners into the game or allow aces to boost the probability of netting an elusive hole-in-one. Bald Mountain also encompasses a grass-tee driving range, a practice green, and a banquet area that can host up to 250 people for bridal showers, graduation parties, or group therapy meetings for short-irons that feel like drivers on the inside.

Championship Course at a Glance: * Designed by Wilfred Reid * 18-hole, par-71 course * Length of 6,624 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 71.5 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 121 from the farthest tees * Three tee options * Link to scorecard

When he designed Fieldstone Golf Club, renowned architect Arthur Hills managed to hem the course's rolling fairways into Southeast Michigan's wetlands and through its towering hardwoods. The resulting layout is one of great diversity, and one that has tested some of the world's top players during numerous well-known tournaments.

Golfers understand the challenge that awaits from the outset, since the first hole is Fieldstone's No. 1 handicap. Like an octopus who has taken up boxing, the initial hole can attack from all angles; it features trees to the left, heather to the right, and a bunker straight away. Once players find their way past that, they can attempt to tackle the rest of the par 72 course, which stretches a little more than 7,000 yards from the back tees.

The certified coaches at Oakland Country CrossFit draw from a diverse range of disciplines and backgrounds to motivate and push their students to higher levels of fitness. Students work their bodies with a wide range of programs, including traditional yoga, CrossFit classes, Olympic lifting, and personal training. At the 7,000 square-foot gym, students won't find treadmills or step-machines, but they might notice free-weights, tractor tires, and 2,000 square feet of astroturf. CrossFit students build muscles with a high-intensity regimen of scalable exercises, shattering their limitations and goals with calisthentics, kettlebells, gymnastics, and metabolic conditioning.
