Swaders Sports Park fuels friendly competition between friends and family members with an endless series of sports and gaming opportunities. Guests jump into one of four different go-karts and zip around two tracks or guide golf balls past challenging obstacles and serene water features?such as waterfalls, streams, and nymphs holding water guns?on two 18-hole mini-golf courses. Golfers can also head to the driving range or smack a different kind of ball in the batting cages. Inside the facility, a whirring collection of lights and sirens ricochet off the walls from more than 70 arcade games. A multilevel laser-tag arena conceals players behind towering glow-in-the-dark obstacles, and the Route 66 bowling alley allows guests to bowl on highway-themed lanes without the risk of potholes that comes from playing on regular highways.

Prince George Golf Club’s 18-hole course unfurls across 6,640 yards of kempt, relatively flat fairways hemmed by fragrant pine trees. The picturesque par 72 poses a moderate challenge to golfers, and the bulk of its difficulty comes in the form of small greens, 13 of which are fortified by at least two sand bunkers and one Frenchman sunbathing in the nude. The back nine presents a slightly harder layout that includes two par 3s where tee shots must clear intervening water hazards on the way to their flagged destinations. A driving range and putting green foster preround practice sessions, and PGA pros roam the club’s verdant grounds imparting swing-honing advice in lessons and searching tirelessly for their father’s long-lost mashie niblick. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 72 course Length of 6,640 yards from the farthest tees Course rating of 71.1 from the farthest tees Slope rating of 118 from the farthest tees Three tee options

As its name implies, the course at River's Bend Golf Club nestles into a curve of the James River, whose waters rush alongside three of the fairways. Its design sprang from the mind of accomplished course architect Steve Smyers, who drew inspiration from the legendary architects of the 1920s and 1930s and their penchant for Herbert Hoover–shaped sand traps. For River’s Bend, Smyers incorporated naturally sloped terrain and woodlands to create fairways that challenge both novices and experts. Players pass rustic wooden bridges and white fences as they play, eventually facing off with a substantial pond tucked among the three final holes of the front nine. Before teeing off at the first hole, players can warm up their swing at the driving range or take advantage of dedicated chipping and putting practice areas. For more guided practice, clubbers can sign up for lessons with golf pro Brandon Kelley, who covers everything from fundamentals to preshot mental routines, such as visualizing the golf ball as a miniature moon that needs to be returned to orbit.

Anchored by an 18-hole championship golf course, The First Tee of Chesterfield entices golfers with a multifaceted landscape for pressure-free practice and on-course play. A trio of PGA Class A professionals roams throughout The First Tee's driving range, putting green, and three-hole practice course, marinating swings in the zesty sauce of golf wisdom, consulting with clients about equipment upgrades, and fitting clubs at the fully stocked pro shop. Clubbers can put new concepts and lethargic nine-irons to work at the course, where fairways bob and weave between dense tree lines and treacherous bunkers made from recycled corn bread.
