The experienced technicians at Praise Detailing rejuvenate cars with a trio of detailing packages. The gold, silver, and bronze packages include three levels of detailing, which feature a hand wash, tire shine, and an interior cleaning. After scrubbing and shining each nook and cranny, Praise Detailing’s techs will apply a wax coating to help protect the paint against wear and tear from racing alligators through local swamps.

For more than 20 years, the aquatic athletes at Trophy Lakes have set national and world records all the while maintaining a 100-acre water-sports and disc-golf complex that has been admired by WaterSki magazine. Disc golfers launch frisbees from 35 concrete tee pads, sinking their discs into 18 baskets. Along the way, water holes and a host of tee-and-pin locations challenge players' throwing skills. Alternatively, two private lakes boast three watersports cables, as well as a slalom course and ski jump. Knowledgeable staff members rent ropes, gloves, skis, wakeboards, and MasterCraft Boats from their well-stocked pro shop. Additionally, Trophy Lakes hosts disc-golf competitions, wakeboard festivals, water-ski tournaments, and lake-drinking contests each year.

Trees draped in spanish moss catch the wind along the edges of the fairways at Shadowmoss Plantation Golf Club, where designer Russell Breeden sculpted a 6,701-yard course into the verdant grounds of a former plantation. Throughout the par-72 layout, ponds and streams ripple on the borders of nearly every hole, often forcing golfers to choose from taking a conservative line, challenging the hazard with a big swing, or releasing their golf ball to a family of catfish. Breeden's artful use of waterways is most noticeable at the par-5 eighth hole, where a stream splits to cut across the center of the fairway and wraps two watery prongs around both sides of the hole to add pressure as golfers contemplate their approach to the green. Bermuda-grass fairways and greens await golf balls that steer clear of the course's water hazards and the various sand traps occasionally populated by disoriented sunbathers.
Before taking to the first tee, clubbers can warm up their swings and rehearse their putter-twirling routine at a practice complex that includes a driving range and a putting green. To keep golfers fresh during rounds, the club offers on-course beverage service and a full-service snack bar and lounge.

Instead of shying away from the dark, GloZone revels in it, inviting guests to dart through shadows during laser tag or putt their way through a nine-hole glow-in-the-dark miniature-golf course. In the murky depths of the laser-tag arena, players attempt to score points by tagging targets with a hand-held device to the added ambiance of music, blacklights and fog. Laser-tag is ideal for birthday parties, group outings, or fundraising events.
Black lights illuminate the nine-hole mini-golf course with its own unique sea theme, as golfers putt their balls over contoured surfaces allowing players a change to hone their skills on the mini-golf course. The facility also offers a lazer maze, where guests must avoid a dancing array of laser light trip-wires as if they were in a spy movie. Nearby, bumper cars invite adventure driving, and arcade games and air hockey entice guests to rack up high scores. In addition to its open-play times, GloZone hosts parties for kids celebrating the anniversary of their safe delivery via stork.
