Helmed by LPGA Class A instructor Kathy Hester, Mississippi’s OnTarget Golf Schools build smooth, dependable swings during six one-hour, weekly classes. The six-session program allows instructors to mold pupils’ form by breaking the swing down into its component parts, introducing sound techniques and allowing ample practice repetitions to commit concepts to muscle memory, where they will join riding a bicycle and swallowing oversize jawbreakers on command. Golf gurus also teach clubbers to hit practice shots with a target in mind, developing a subconscious association between their ball’s destination and the shot required to reach it. Clients can consult the schedule for upcoming classes. Online map directions might not be completely accurate, so customers should call ahead if they've never visited any of the courses before. Clubs will be available upon request.

Whisper Lake Country Club's verdant course encompasses 4,645 yards of kempt bermuda-grass fairways into a compact-but-challenging par 64 course. Golfers can prepare for rounds with swing-loosening stints at the driving range. There, wise players will focus on mid-length shots and keep drivers securely covered so they don't recognize rounds of golf are being played without them. Various short, drivable par 4s line the course, eschewing the longball in favor of pinpoint long irons or fairway woods, encouraging duffers to direct orbs to hospitable landing areas and set up favorable angles to approach fast, tifdwarf greens. Four sets of tees make the course surmountable for golfers of all abilities, and its compressed yardage—the 18-hole course only features two, relatively short par 5s compared to nine par 3s—allows duffers to complete rounds in about three hours or less, freeing up valuable time to tend to workday obligations or mow basement shag carpets into in-home putting greens. Cart rental is included in all options.

Licensed childcare director Kristal Bailey serves as mayor of The Play Place's toddler metropolis, complete with a bustling rush hour of kiddie commuters and free WiFi for parents (all-day admission $6). The tots' town is equipped with miniature versions of civic institutions, including a bite-size boutique for dress-up, a hardware store for blossoming builders, free toy-truck parking, and state-of-the-art climate-control technology. On Tuesdays and Fridays, Bailey frees harried parents to run their errands or just get a morning off with indoor childcare ($10/hour), where tykes can meet and play with other local little ones. On certain upcoming dates, The Play Place will host a four-hour Parents' Night Out, granting moms and dads with 2-year-olds and older a Friday-night freedom that once seemed more fictitious than a fairy-princess rap battle.

Clint Barr, a former A-advanced-level baseball player in the New York Yankees organization who has a Masters Degree in Exercise Science, leads a team of versatile, firm-but-not-screamy fitness experts into battle against sedentarianism. The boot camps, which are designed for all ages, fitness levels, and blood types, incorporate a hodge-podge of athletic maneuvering to keep muscles as surprised as someone opening a refrigerator to find only a bowl of marbles. After 28 days of stretching, performing push-ups, running, jumping over mini-hurdles, and more, you can expect to see a 3%–8% loss of body fat (results may vary), which dissipates through the pores and enters the atmosphere to form clouds.
