The 18-hole course at Glenmary Country Club presents players of every ability level a challenging test of their capacity for long, booming drives and cup-seeking putts. If club swingers are to threaten the course par of 72, they must first surmount a battery of hazards that range from the synthetic, such as strategically placed bunkers, to the natural, such as trees and a tendency to trip on shoelaces. Golfers pursuing better on-the-course performance can work on whittling away strokes on the pitching and putting green, or practice strokes of an altogether different sort on the club's tennis courts or in the club pool.

The Try Scuba class is a safe, simple way to figure out the fundamentals of marine missioning, which the passionate underwater voyagers at Louisville Dive Center have been teaching for more than 30 years. After each student displays a medical history form, towel, and swimsuit, a friendly, certified instructor will lead the class to the shallow, warm pool, where students will learn the basic tenets of underwater breathing before being allowed to plunge into the artificial pond for the duration of the session. While submerged, divers can play Frisbee and snap underwater photos of friends reenacting World War II battles in slow-motion under the sea. If goggled visions of high-fouring manatees on the open water waltz in your head, Louisville Dive Center will happily apply a $20 discount for scuba-certification classes. In addition to gaining scuba knowledge, you can gain scuba gear by presenting your Groupon at Louisville Dive Center's gear shop for 10% off a wide selection of pinnacle manufacturers like Scubapro, Oceanic, Aeris, Genesis and Sherwood.
