Seventy-five years separate Watson Ranch Golf’s front and back nines, which billow across an undulating parcel of wooded terrain just east of the Coos River. Known as Coos Country Club when it opened for play in 1923, the course’s original nine holes were designed by H. Chandler Egan. A successful amateur golfer himself, his idea of a proper introduction was welcoming players with a pair of stiff par 5s. While Mr. Egan would go on to redesign the famous Pebble Beach Golf Links just six years later, Watson Ranch Golf remained a 9-hole course until 1998, when it sprouted a back nine. Today, the 18-hole course also incorporates a driving range, a chipping area, and two practice putting greens where golfers can limber up before acquainting themselves with Mr. Egan’s opening holes.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,402 yards from the back tees
  • Three sets of tees per hole
  • Scorecard

Through exhibits that explore everything from astronomy and physics to biology and paleontology, the Science Factory inspires a lifelong love of science in children as well as adults. Above all else, the nonprofit embraces a motto of "please touch," creating safe, engaging opportunities for children to act on their curiosity and gain insight into the principles underlying scientific and technological theories.

The Exploration Dome exemplifies the immersive nature of the Museum, surrounding audiences with a full-dome screen that displays digital and live-action films. These educational features can take guests to virtually any location in the world and beyond, including the heart of the Borneo rainforest, the depths of prehistoric oceans, the edge of our galaxy's super-massive black hole, and a universe where popcorn kernels never get stuck in your teeth. Permanent exhibits—including a feature on responsible recycling as well as a terrarium of lizards, frogs, and plants, complete with Renegade, the Museum's resident iguana—explore topics in more depth, complementing both the Exploration Dome’s videos and an ever-changing roster of special attractions.

Chef Bupar acquired her culinary prowess alongside her mother, who operated a street-side café in Bangkok for more than 20 years. Today, she draws on recipes she learned from her mother to conjure up the bustling, spice-tinged air of the city of her youth. The traditional Thai flavors of ginger, lemongrass, and garlic flood dishes and thick coconut milk helps lower the potency of red chilies in a range of curries to a pleasant warmth. Beneath the eatery’s saffron-hued walls and decorative greenery, bouquets of basil, cilantro, and fresh sprouts bestow portions of noodles and rice with textural variety.

Diners can sit outdoors if the weather and 80-foot sentient dragon statue permits, or enjoy after-dinner entertainment at the nearby Matthew Knight Arena. Downstairs in The Underground Lounge, diners can feast on the main restaurant’s full menu in a more casual atmosphere adorned with pool tables, HDTVs, and dartboards.

David Minor Theater’s two large projection screens broadcast new releases, classics, and cult films, but there's just as much appeal happening off-screen. One example: the front row of Theater One, where a long spread of plush couches stands in for typical movie seats. Then, of course, there’s The Livingroom Theater, an aptly named 16-person screening room outfitted with recliners, couches, and state-of-the-art sound.

Other creature comforts abound. The theater serves apps and entrees from local restaurants such as Café Lucky Noodle, The Jackalope Lounge, and Granary Pizza, not to mention local and seasonal beers from Ninkasi and Hop Valley, all of which guests can enjoy inside the theater during the show. Moveable tables at the end of the aisles also make eating or folding laundry during films a breeze. Moviegoers can even text their food or drink order to a special number and have it brought to them so they don't miss any of the film.

Steve Daniels has been crafting beautiful pottery in his cozy home studio for more than 18 years. A master of the irregular, smoky hues of shino glaze, Daniels' cups were most recently featured in a juried exhibition at the University of Missouri's Bingham Gallery. During wheel throwing classes and intensive workshops, he imparts that mastery to aspiring potters, helping with technique and glazing finished pieces in his studio. His signature glazes can come out a variety of colors, from a smoky purple to a rusty orange. Daniels' wife, Leonie, also nurtures artistry with handbuilding classes and parties, exposing students to innovative sculpting ideas such as textured tiles, chess pieces, and beautiful but impractical bowling pins.

At Firs Bowl Lanes, brightly colored house bowling balls glide down 24 synthetic and wood lanes as automatic scoring systems prevent exaggeration-prone players from claiming to have bowled a 3,000. Anchoring the bowling center’s concourse, these lanes attract both league and open bowlers, who frequent special weekend events such as Friday Family Night and the neon-lit Kosmic Bowl. The center’s amenities include bumper lanes, a lottery, video games, and a diner-style snack bar where guests sit on low-slung barstools while enjoying food, beer, and other beverages.
