Meadowridge Golf Course's nine-hole par 3 course and expansive driving range appeal to club-wielding neophytes as well as veterans looking to improve their short game without getting blocked by an enormous clown mouth. Today's deal is valid for tee times for two at any time—though rates change after 10 a.m.—and includes a cart rental. Club swingers can also opt to visit Meadowridge's driving range and take advantage of 60 driving stations perched atop real grass and mats that gaze longingly onto the 320-yard expanse in front of them. Armed with a bucket of 100 balls, sphere-crushing patrons can bombard more than 25 targets, precisely place sand shots from the safety of a protected bunker, test putting skills on a four-degree, 24'x75' practice zone, and challenge other guests to golf-tee-juggling contests.

It isn’t uncommon for the vastly different worlds of charity fundraising and pole dancing to collide at various local philanthropic functions throughout Iowa. That’s because staff members at Wicked Enchantment Pole Dancing & Fitness Studio continue to prove that pole fitness can benefit their community as well as raise money for organizations such as Children's Miracle Network and Eastern Iowa Honor Flight. They channel this same spirit of support during their group and private classes back at their ladies-only workout venue.

They restrict their pole-based classes to six people, fostering an intimate and supportive environment for women to master climbs, grips, and twirls. Their curriculum also hones in on the healthy aspect of the art, listing classes that target arms, abs, and cores as well as full-body boot-camp workouts. They teach several levels of pole dancing and corresponding choreography classes, building fluid routines by augmenting maneuvers with transitions and lubricating arm joints with 10W-40.

The stately trees and blue grass fairways that line Cedar Rapids Twin Pines Golf Course have been flourishing since 1962, when the first golfers walked the course’s emerald alleyways. Eighteen scenic holes invite greenhorns to green-jacket holders to dig up divots while aiming their dimpled orbs around a quartet of ponds. Hole five presents a sharp dogleg left with a water hazard nestled in the crook of its elbow, forcing golfers to either tee off with masterful precision or keep the fairways lush with a steady stream of tears. Before facing the course’s unforgiving, undulating fairways or the tree-framed putting green of hole eight, players can warm up at any of the driving range’s 20 hitting stations. After a successful round, golfers can drop into the clubhouse to cool off hot putting hands with a frosty beverage and tell old war stories of facing off against rifle-wielding regiments with only their 9-iron.

Wildcat Golf Course began as a nine-hole track in 1997, but after winning the "9-Hole Course of the Year" award from the Iowa Golf Association, it made sense to utilize the surrounding expanses of natural terrain and expand to an 18-hole course. Using the rolling pastureland of Saddleback Ridge as his artistic palette, course architect Mark Kerr designed the layout around Wildcat Creek and five additional ponds, resulting in a course that incorporates water hazards into half of its holes. The course is also characterized by at least five slight doglegs, strategically placed bunkers around fast-rolling greens, and mature pine trees scattered throughout. Wildcat golf course also provides a driving range, two indoor golf simulators, and on-site bar and grill inside the revamped clubhouse.

To slow things down a bit, the Vitality for You class leads participants through 45 minutes of stretching exercises, helping students who want to gain the flexibility to massage their own back after workouts.
