The course at Perche Creek Golf Club is comprised of 18 par-3 holes that gently introduce beginners to the game while still challenging veterans with ample opportunities for short-game improvement. Nine ponds delineate the holes and loom large as players line up their attacks from the tee, ready to gulp down errant shots. The flat layout allows players to nail down their iron distances, a crucial ingredient for proper course management. On nice evenings, course superintendents turn on the front nine's area lights, making for easier night play without having to give an alien a Walkman in exchange for plutonium golf balls. Perche Creek's driving range gives players a variety of targets to attack from 50 hitting stations and 20 synthetic-grass mats, earning it a spot on Golf Range Magazine's list of the top 100 ranges in the nation. The club also encompasses an 18-hole miniature-golf course, which challenges players with curvy putting corridors flanked by rocks and water hazards.

Jones and Norene Gann first imagined transforming their property into a golf course 18 years ago, and constructed an 18-hole course and golf facility now managed by the Rapp family. Open seven days a week, the course challenges golfers with outstretched trees, formidable bunkers and mounds, and hazardous waters. Designated cart paths wind around and through the course, guiding drivers to the next hole on their route or through a wormhole leading to the twenty-third century. Nestled atop the sprawling property, practice facilities help golfers warm up swinging arms, and a pro shop lets athletes restock balls and read up on instructional guides to high-level golfsmanship.

In regular golf instruction, owners Bill and Philip Rapp help students fine-tune their swing and boost their game with new skills. On Tuesday evenings, young putters can hone their swinging skills in free lessons.

Cyclextreme’s team introduces Columbia-area clients to a robust cycling culture through a full-service bike shop and rental service. With their own helmets in hand, customers will arrive to pick out a manual two-wheeler for an extended jaunt around the city or into the surrounding fields, frequently criss-crossed by wild pelotons. Riders may take up one of Cyclextreme’s suggested street loops, which vary in length from 20.5 miles to 40 miles and roam over a mixed topographical bag of hills and flat stretches. If trail riding more suits the cyclist’s taste, softer riding pathways stretch out from urban areas to support the circulatory exchange of humans between the city organ and surrounding rural tissues. The popular Katy Trail spears through most of Missouri, sweeping Columbia’s bike pilots along part of Lewis and Clark’s original route to fame, adventure, and the ability to properly tickle a bison. Saff members also kindly asks riders to return rented machines in the same condition in which they received them.

Today, they pass on their knowledge at four Missouri dojos that offer training for both adults and children. Numerous pupils have become masters under the Hockmans' training, including more than 500 black belts and numerous state champions.
