For more than 10 years, King's Deer Golf Club's challenging Scottish-style, Redstone Golf–designed course has challenged the swings and putts of all levels of linksmen. A scenic backdrop, featuring 200 acres of rolling hills, lush wetlands, Pike's Peak, and the Rockies, is visible from nearly every corner of the course, which is open year-round. Teach your ball proper travel etiquette on King's Deer's large elevated practice range, putting station, or chipping area, then drive your electronic rickshaw to the well-kept course, its tee yardages averaging 5,054 yards from forward tees and 7,000 yards from professional tees.
The enthusiastic coaches at Soccer Buddies educate youngsters on the value of physical fitness and impart much-needed confidence through drills and practices that refine fundamental skills. Lessons aim to build on the foundations of balance, agility, and coordination for budding athletes as young as 10 months old. As kids get older and their skills begin to mature, they’ll also have the chance to advance through age- and skill-appropriate classes, which increase the chance that students will be fully prepared for advanced moves such as bicycle kicks and the act of kissing a World Cup trophy. Youngsters will find new physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges at every leg of the training track, and those who excel will be eligible for an invitation to the Soccer Buddies Select class, a higher-level learning environment for competitive-minded players younger than 12.

When course architect Roy Case designed the 36 holes that would become Wildcat Golf Club, he drew inspiration from two distinct styles by laying traditional Scottish links-style holes over the undulating Texas Hill Country topography. Players encounter lots of tall grasses but few trees as they eventually reach 100-foot elevations, where they'll catch glimpses of Houston's skyline, Reliant Stadium, and the Galleria. The Club is divided into two 18-hole courses: the Highlands Course and the Lakes Course are each blanketed in TifSport Bermuda grass fairways and TifEagle Bermuda putting surfaces so smooth that golfers have reported reaching into the cup and pulling out a single red rose instead of their golf ball.
Though situated next to one another, each course bears its own unique set of challenges. Deep ravines and strategically placed bunkers befuddle players on the Highlands Course, while the Lakes Course lives up to its name with water as its defining characteristic. A series of lakes comes into play on seven holes, nowhere more dramatically than on the twelfth hole, a unique par 5 configuration whose tee box, two fairway sections, and green are separated by intersecting water hazards, which double as watering holes for thirsty golf carts.

Instructors at The Painted Parrot believe in the artistic potential of every person who picks up a brush. To prove it, they travel around town with paint, aprons, and 16"x20" canvases, teaching participants to create pre-selected works of art with step-by-step instructions. At the end of the party, every fledgling artist walks away with a painting that's ready to hang.
Through the windows of Monument Hill Country Club's rustic, hilltop lodge, guests can drink in views of both the snow-capped splendor of the Rocky Mountains and the meandering fairways of the Club's 18-hole golf course. Designed by course architect J. Press Maxwell, the championship layout features long, narrow fairways that tunnel through dense groves of ponderosa pines, which place the ability to hit straight drives and see through wood at a premium. Four ponds further complicate clubbers' passage, with water in play on six holes and five daunting forced carries. A driving range and practice sand bunker help players warm up their swings and castle-building skills before rounds.
With four indoor courts and a full schedule of adult and junior tennis programs, the Monument Hill Tennis Center keeps fuzzy, racquet-propelled orbs flying through the air. The Club also encompasses a two-story fitness center, heated indoor and outdoor swimming pools, and diverse dining options that accommodate anything from a casual post-round bite to a stately banquet to toast the tragic passing of a cherished sand wedge.
