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.

The instructors at Sylvan Learning Center understand the limitations of a one-size-fits-all classroom; they tailor tutoring and enrichment curricula to each student to meet specific goals. By interviewing pupils and gathering input from teachers and parents, the center's army of energetic study buddies can position students for success in subjects such as reading, math, writing, or study skills. Along with overseeing test-prep for ACTs and SATs, instructors help kids keep school breaks productive with academic camps that focus on specific skills such as math problem-solving and pitching tiny tents out of protractors and loose-leaf paper.
As a recreational flying club operating out of Wood County Regional Airport, Eagle Air Flying Club gives aspiring aviators access to its pair of airplanes for lessons and flying time. While not itself a flying school, club members keep a Rolodex of certified flying Instructors handy for use by non-members and new recruits. Both planes in the club's hangar—a refurbished '73 Piper Arrow and '68 Piper Cherokee—let pilots earn experience with the instruments, protocols, and inside jokes used by actual pilots.
