Bowling Green Country Club’s nine-hole course journeys across 73 acres of Ohio countryside. Featuring a nine-hole yardage of 2,782 from the farthest tees, the layout adds a sense of variety with four tee options for golfers looking to play the hole twice for an 18-hole round or foursomes who prefer to play without having to interact. A watery ellipse stands in the middle of four holes, including the par 3 seventh, where tee shots must somersault 168 yards over the corner of the pond to find the green. After rounds, duffers can unwind at the outdoor patio of Jeff Szabo’s Fairway Grill, where a wait staff of disguised caddies serves a menu of burgers, salads, sandwiches, and other hearty fare.
Course at a Glance: * Nine-hole, par 35 course * Length of 2,782 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 33.8 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 114 from the farthest tees * Four tee options
The culinary staff at Super Suppers strives to breathe life back into the American tradition of sitting down to a home-cooked meal. The handcrafted take ‘n’ bake items, which include entrees, sides, appetizers, and desserts, conveniently last in freezers for up to three months or until evicted to make room for hibernating snowmen. Ready-to-heat basil pork chops with caesar penne or bacon-wrapped chicken breasts with cream cheese save time on prep, and a variety of gluten-free, dairy-free, and heart-healthy items offer tasty meals that meet all sorts of dietary restrictions. Instructors also supply ingredients, gear, and know-how during Kids in the Kitchen and Taste of Super Suppers classes that teach participants how to create simple and tasty meals at home.
The spotlight can be a lonely place. But the accomplished instructors have been there before, acting in venues across the country. Now, they use this professional industry experience to inspire fledgling performers to step fearlessly into the light. With workshops, group classes, and private lessons, students from age 7 to 18 can bolster their stage confidence, audition techniques, and Elizabethan fluency. They can also increase their musicality with the studio's private instrument lessons. Next Stage Studios also organizes the Broadway Bound summer day camp, where workshops with coaches and local celebrities culminate in a revue-style showcase.
The Sassy Spa Party was founded by Brandy Bowen, based on the notion that grownups shouldn't get to have all the fun. Because kids spend most of their days toiling away in school or planning fun activities for their teddy bears, they need pampering too. This mobile spa arrives at the party location with all equipment necessary to treat party guests with luxe kiddie spa treatments. With their hair pulled back by fluffy spa headbands, the party coordinators paint their faces with chocolate masks, color their nails in pretty polishes, and serve mocktails for them to sip during treatments. They'll even handle setup and cleanup too, so parents only have to worry about making sure their little guests have a great time.
Posh Dollz Parties’ mobile shindigs bring Hollywood glamor to kids living outside of southern California's sun-drenched borders. On-site party experts transform hosts’ homes into venues for themed celebrations such as Posh Runway or Posh Spa Parties. During these 90-minute soirees, the party experts brighten faces with kid-friendly facials, oversee karaoke concerts, or polish nails during mini manicures. Glamorous extras round out the proceedings, such as photo shoots with props or chocolate fountains, which are ideal for snacking on or bathing pet pigs in.
It’s tempting to spoil your appetite at Le Petit Gourmet, where cinnamon and chocolate croissants, slices of carrot cake and cheesecake, and almond-palmier cookies are arrayed in a glass bakery case. Thankfully, nearby coolers also cradle hams, smoked turkey, and cheese bound for club sandwiches and reubens, served either cold or grilled until crisp. Cooks slip through the dining room, carrying boxed lunches, sandwich trays, and tacos, allowing patrons to cater parties or feed the lumberjack that perches on their sill each morning.
