Named Best Golf Course by CrossRoadsNews readers in the 2010 Best of East Metro Readers Choice Awards, Sugar Creek Golf Course challenges seasoned and novice shooters to navigate more than 6,200 yards of manicured countryside. Hop into Sugar Creek's inclusive golf cart with your best friend, dad, or best friend's dad to explore the publicly owned, par-71 course, which dares dimple dabblers to dodge its low-slung bunkers and master the movement of well-kept greens. Guests can also feel free to give skills a quick polish at the course's practice bunker and putting greens. Once iron-swingers have sufficiently conquered Sugar Creek's fairways and snorkeled its water hazards, they may end links journeys at the full-service clubhouse or in the retail realm of the Sugar Creek pro shop.

Guests can throw their creativity at these 3D canvases using the studio’s stencils, brushes, sponges, and dozens of glazes. Staff members make the rounds sharing tips on technique and helping sort through idea books with painters during open studio time.
