Helmed by LPGA Class A instructor Kathy Hester, Mississippi’s OnTarget Golf Schools build smooth, dependable swings during six one-hour, weekly classes. The six-session program allows instructors to mold pupils’ form by breaking the swing down into its component parts, introducing sound techniques and allowing ample practice repetitions to commit concepts to muscle memory, where they will join riding a bicycle and swallowing oversize jawbreakers on command. Golf gurus also teach clubbers to hit practice shots with a target in mind, developing a subconscious association between their ball’s destination and the shot required to reach it. Clients can consult the schedule for upcoming classes. Online map directions might not be completely accurate, so customers should call ahead if they've never visited any of the courses before. Clubs will be available upon request.

[[m:####The Eagle Ridge Golf Course

The Eagle Ridge Golf Course’s 18-hole layout takes golfers loping across 6,526 yards of rolling terrain that beckons to birdie-hunters with a player-friendly, par 72 layout. Throughout the round, players attempt to land skyscraping drives or paper airplanes forged from their opponent’s scorecard in the middle of kempt fairways that arch over cresting hilltops on a path to relatively small, elevated greens. Though the undulated landscape affords golfers picturesque views across the layout, it also bears the threat of unfavorable lies, forcing golfers to showcase their ability to soundly strike balls positioned below their feet, around their knees, or balanced on a fellow player's nose. An onsite driving range helps players warm up before the round, and Eagle Ridge caters to clubbers of all ages and abilities with four tee options.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,256 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 68.5 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 112 from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options

Head Coach Sonny Dykes leads the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs through a series of strategic plays during a pigskin-passing match against the New Mexico State Aggies. Starting quarterback Nick Isham, chosen as the 2010 Old Spice National High School Player of the Year, applies his confidence in passing footballs and traffic on two-lane highways to the playing field, allowing the Bulldogs to maneuver around their helmet-headed opponents. Looking to improve upon last year's achieved 5–7 mark, the home team will attempt to pin their rivals to the ground using nothing more than ferocious tackles and an endless supply of velcro.

Singer-songwriter Pat Green takes his winning mesh of rocking country music back on the road, fortifying his army of fans while spreading Texas pride across the land on his current tour. From massive hits such as “Wave on Wave” through his surplus of honky-tonk heartbreakers and keg-juggling anthems, Pat rides a brakeless gravy train fueled by a strange talent called “talent” and the storytelling skills of a straight-shooting Aesop. The Rally on the Ravine concert celebrates a football rivalry between the Ouachita Baptist Tigers and the Henderson State Reddies, who will be clashing on the gridiron across Highway 67 before the show (football tickets are not included with this Groupon).

Tremendous trees with 12-foot-wide trunks towered a hundred feet into the sky 36 million years ago, dominating the landscape for centuries before succumbing to the passage of time. An ancient river carried them halfway across the continent and deposited them in a logjam in Mississippi, where they slowly turned to stone. Though the river is long gone, the site thrives today as registered national landmark. The Mississippi Petrified Forest showcases the lifecycle of these primordial trees turned petrified logs.

A shady six-block nature trail winds around the site and ends at an earth-science museum, which contains a collection of dinosaur footprints, whale bones, and a prehistoric camel. Patrons can also screen rocky samples in a water flume for rough gemstones that they can take home or use to save their neighborhood from land developers.
