Beech Creek’s course blankets the rolling Ohio countryside with more than 5,400 yards of player-friendly fairways and greens. The relatively short layout welcomes novice golfers, while more experienced aces and tape-measure enthusiasts flaunt their length off the tee on three par 5s that measure at least 550 yards.
Course at a Glance
The Five Seasons Family Sports Club houses tennis courts, a dining area, fitness facilities, swimming pools, and a full-service spa under one roof. Within air-conditioned indoor courts or on outdoor hard or clay courts, racquet slingers compete in friendly bouts to sharpen swings, refine backhands, and showcase grunting abilities. Members can also break a sweat in exercise areas speckled with modern cardio equipment and weights or cool off in an Olympic-sized pool with diving wells and wading areas. Before meeting others for a postgame beverage at the lively café, clients can wander to the spa for a relaxing massage or partake in a sports workshop to gain a firm grasp on game mechanics.
Tri County Golf Ranch's 9-hole, par 3 course challenges golfers of all skill levels with its undulating bentgrass greens, uphill and downhill shots, and multiple tee options. Before rounds, golfers can practice drives and mulligan excuses on the ranch's manicured short-game area and the sizable driving range—which houses 18 heated and covered bays—before hitting the links.
Compelled by their commitment to orb-eviscerating excellence, the golf gurus at Kirby’s Golf Stix enlist the FlightScope swing analysis system, which uses the same technology as Doppler radar, to smooth out rough swings and determine the ideal club dimension for each pupil. Within the walls of Kirby’s indoor golf studio, the kinetic clacking of club-head to sphere soundtracks an odyssey to a realm devoid of all mulligans, as video playback exposes the mechanical maladies that surface in unsightly snap-hooks, errant drives, and bipolar putters. Along with its role in swing refinement, Kirby's uses single-frequency matching to determine the ideal characteristics of each club—such as shaft type, weight, and length, or grip type and size—that would turn each iron, wedge, and rescue club into the soulmate of your unique swing (actual club adjustments not included with this offer). After the lesson, Kirby’s makes each comprehensive swing analysis available online, bridging the animosity between personal computers and golf clubs from competing with one another for human beings' tender affection.
Seasoned golfer Ron Curran helps novice and out-of-practice adult golfers set dimpled orbs on the right track. Eschewing time-intensive stance or swing changes, Ron helps his pupils hit each ball solidly and consistently. During one hour of instruction, Ron works with each player's existing skills to seamlessly lower scorecard totals, improving match play enough to satisfy work colleagues and friends who only permit access to the tree house with an under-par score. Clients can work on specific areas such as gaining distance off the tee and straightening slice. Ron touts a 99% satisfaction rate, which he backs up with a guarantee that any customer dissatisfied with their pin-finding improvements will be refunded the purchase price of today's deal.
The gym can be an intimidating place for unexperienced exercisers, which is why Better Bodies introduced its Healthy Start training program. During the initial session, the staff uses a computer program called the Virtual Fitness Planner to reveal basic biometrics and calculate the likelihood of health risks such as type-2 diabetes. Once you're informed, you can take action by signing up for a personal-training session, attending a group-fitness class, or lifting on the fitness floor's Hammer Strength machines. For busy parents or particularly ripped nannies, Better Bodies also provides complimentary childcare services for members.
