Diamondback Golf Club's 12-acre practice facility packs a wallop of club-based fun, including a full driving range, sizable putting green, and sand-flanked pitching area. Two brimming pails of dimpled orbs savor escapes from mini golf's frightening clowns as guests launch their contents across 75,000 square feet of teeing area. After fine-tuning their long game, golfers can feel free to tap around a 10,000-square-foot putting green to hone precision cup-seeking skills. To cap off a day of boosting golf bona fides or to presage a marvelous on-course performance, visiting club wielders can knock balls over groomed sand traps and onto a chipping green to prevent confused sea turtles from sneaking up and burying unhatched golf balls.
The Abilene Ruff Riders sate adrenaline-craving eyes with an action-packed arsenal of tackles and high-flying passes, while trampling their competition.

Ruff Riders' mascot Rowdy the cowboy joins forces with a squad of dancing temptresses to incite fanfare and woo the visiting team into confused complacency. Fans can color coordinate with red-section seats while imitating the players' red and black insignia, eliminating the need to display support by inflating hands with bicycle pumps.
