The imposing tree lines on either side of the par 5 first hole at Cross Creek Golf Club frame the ideal shot right off the teebox, like two sides of a leafy goalpost. The crossbar, then, is the medium-size pond just past the tees?the first of 12 encounters with water players will have over the duration of the round. As with so many situations found throughout the course, the shot demands steely nerves, much like asking for chocolate syrup on a hotdog. Even so, the opening gambit can bode well for the rest of the round?there are only two par 5s on the course, making a solid opening drive a player's best shot at securing a solid score.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 70 course * Total length of 6,061 yards from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole * View the scorecard

A combination of jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, ballet, tap, and gymnastics classes contribute to versatile dancers, which is why Making Moves Dance Collective is a good place to start learning the craft. Owners Amber Comer and Kellie Sellers sought to open a studio where competitive dancers would find proper training. Not all of their classes cater to aspiring professionals, though; they also offer a street-jazz class for adults that focuses solely on toning and conditioning.

Having played hundreds of tennis matches over the years, Steven and Pete have had to string their rackets more times than they can count. They've learned the subtleties of the art—which strings to choose for durability, which for power, and which for finely grated cheese—as well as how to replace strings speedily. Their pickup and delivery services ensure that players can return to the court without a pit stop. With polyester, multifilament, and synthetic strings from brands such as Dunlop, Babolat, Kirschbaum, Wilson, and Luxilon, their wide variety suits most rackets. The store locations also sell other tennis accessories, from balls to replacement grips.

Terrapin Adventures never fails to live up to its name—even their swing set gets the stomach fluttering with excitement. To be fair, though, the swing in question is anything but the traditional apparatus you'd find at a city park. It seats three people and starts its trajectory 40 feet above the ground, generating 2Gs of force as it swishes riders back and forth over the landscape. The park's other attractions are equally exhilarating. On the high ropes course, visitors attached to sturdy safety harnesses cross 18 traverses situated between lofty platforms; some must be tackled via a rickety bridge, while others require leaps of faith. The 43-foot high climbing tower offers 10 routes up and down, including a head-first downward climb over the Rainbow Serpent. Otherwise, the 330-foot-long zipline sends visitors gliding through the treetops at speeds of up to 20 mph, fast enough to beat the USA track team's star squirrel.

Golf requires power, precision, and soft touch, and Laurel Golf Center helps players hone all three at one location. Covered hitting stalls facilitate year-round practice at the driving range, where golfers can take aim at six target greens or try to nestle their golf ball inside a passing cloud. Short game practice areas let golfers hone chips, pitches, and shots with awkward lies from a practice bunker. To perfect their feel around the greens, guests can roll through the 18-hole miniature golf course.

Sticks and stones may break some bones, but not if they?re directed toward one of Capital MMA & Elite Fitness?s students. In a team-oriented environment, the studio?s instructors teach key mixed-martial-arts moves such as grappling, striking, and wrestling and supplement the training with classes in specific fighting styles, such as Brazilian jiu-jitsu and muay thai. Guests looking for a practical crash course in self-defense learn snippets from each technique in self-defense classes, learning methods for staying aware of surroundings, fending off attackers, and freeing themselves from the grip of King Kongs. Some women-only classes are also available.

The studio's CrossFit program, alternatively, boosts athleticism without combat, through a multi-faceted regimen of Olympic weightlifting, cardio exercise, and custom diets. Beyond group classes, the center offers private lessons and seminars, which allow its students?both children to adults?to learn with focused guidance.
