An all-day pass allows golfers to explore Otter Creek's three nine-hole courses, the North, East, and West; all characterized by narrow fairways, multiple bunkers on almost every hole, and plenty of roughage and foliage to challenge errant shots. The par 5 fifth on the North course, the longest hole at 584 yards, imposes complex obstacles such as a fairway that rises for 200 yards before a slight dogleg right and turkey bone left, leading to dueling bunkers guarding the green with Otter Creek to the right. After piloting the cart to the West course, golfers test their midrange game on the par 3 sixth hole, an uphill iron shot about 200 yards out that leads to an undulated green that moves left to right. Ottter Creek's 27 distinctly different holes allow golfers to practice a variety of shots during a full day of course play, providing enough time for snorkeling in the course's pond to retrieve a hearty supply of golf balls.

As a teaching professional since 1994, Tim Lewis of Aahh! Golf Lessons! teaches the traditional swing while expounding on the unique but consistent playing style of Canadian Hall of Famer “Pipeline” Moe Norman, whose unorthodox swing and quirky personality are the stuff of legend. A guiding principle of the swing is keeping the club on a single plane, which minimizes the possibility that the club head ventures off course to produce erratic ball flights. Tim combines these swing mechanics with the Vardon grip, also known as the overlapping grip or the grip that finally captured Godzilla.

Hands and feet whiz through the air during Shotokan karate matches. The Japanese martial art relies largely upon linear punches, blocks, and kicks that may appear simple but actually pack some power. As the only athlete from the state of Indiana to earn a spot on the USA National Karate Team, the head instructor at Shodan Karate Academy has a depth of martial arts knowledge unlike many others. Pupils at the academy work through the three components of Shotokan, beginning with basic techniques. Once the jabs, kicks, and combos are nailed down, they weave them into kata, or patterns of the moves matched to specific footwork and rhythms. The third facet is sparring, which can be choreographed or freestyle depending on the opponents.

The instructors at Wright's FUNdamentals, an offshoot of Wright's Gymnastics Academy, strive to build enthusiasm for gymnastics, dance, and fitness among kids younger than 9 years old at their two Greenwood facilities. Here, tykes plunge down slides into ball pits, tumble on cushy mats, and swing from monkey bars and rings during open-gym sessions, which foster free-form frolicking throughout the indoor playscape.

For more structured bouts of energy expenditure, kids as young as 2 can hone their coordination, fitness, and summersaulting aptitude in a host of age-appropriate gymnastics and cheerleading classes. The Ninja Gym classes challenge boys to conquer military-style obstacle courses, using ninja-style moves to fend off any rogue cooties from the girls.
