Enjoy stroke after corrective stroke on the range at Tee Town Golf Ranch, where 20 covered hitting stalls stand as the gateway to hole-in-one heaven. Slap a clubface on premium range balls and go for distance or, for increased satisfaction, aim for one of 10 target greens that patchwork the range. Once your power drive is accurate enough to knock decommissioned Soviet satellites out of the sky, finesse your short game by putting across the short-game area's 10,000-square-foot bent-grass green, chipping out from an uneven lie, or playing a game of H.O.R.S.E. with a newly acquainted practice partner. Whether it's evening or daytime, both areas are equipped with brilliant lighting as well as the celestial brilliance of the sun (not available on rainy days).
Designed by Dr. Cindy Helberg Ed.D.—an educator with 28 years of experience in the field and a doctorate in education leadership—the Reading for Kids program promotes literacy for children of all ages. While each tutor follows a tried and true curriculum, they also adapt the specific exercises to each child's needs. For example, they tailor their lessons to suit visual or auditory learners, as well as kids who suffer from dyslexia or ADHD. These 55-minute sessions typically take place once or twice a week, and rely on parental support. This ensures that students do their practice activities between classes, whether it's a reading exercise or spelling the word "vegetable" every time they eat one.

About 90% of Purple Glaze Studio’s ceramics and craft supplies come from local sources, reflecting a dedication to the community that undergirds the studio’s resolve to never become a franchise. Instead, the Oklahoma-oriented Purple Glaze Studio welcomes neighbors inside to paint hundreds of ceramic bowls, frames, and figurines created in the Tulsa area. Stencils, sponges, and stamps assist crafters as they paint their projects, and an idea center helps jumpstart flagging imaginations. The studio also invites guests to assemble bright tiles and stones into mosaics—a perfect activity for a girls’ night, a birthday party, or discovering that you’re actually colorblind.
