Prior to 1963, the entire Gun Lake area did not have a golf course. Local enthusiasts had to travel out of town to get their weekend morning fix, and younger residents had nowhere to become acquainted with the game. It would take a man who had never played a round of golf in his life to give the community a welcoming locale to practice the game and unveil heat seeking three-woods. This visionary, Frank Tichvon, turned his greenhorn status into green-thumbed activism, building a modest yet challenging nine-hole course that thrilled locals with tee shots down beautiful tree-lined fairways and breaking putts across manicured greens. The course's popularity brought about the construction of a second nine-hole layout, and by 1987, the course had grown into a 27-hole destination sprawled across more than 200 acres of verdant Michigan terrain. Eighteen-hole combinations range in length from 5,200 yards up to 6,373, challenging golfers with tight fairways framed by mature arbors that kidnap gullible golf balls.

Course at a Glance: * 27-hole course, par of 36 on each 9-hole side * 18-hole length of up to 6,373 yards from back tees * 18-hole rating of 67.2?69.1 from back tees * 18-hole slope of 105?110 from back tees * Two sets of tees

Sconces glow against the olive-green walls as yogi's toes dig into the cushy mats that adorn the wood floors. A certified instructor takes charge of this scene, leading small groups through strength- and flexibility-building yoga classes. The expert adapts the sessions to students of different experience levels: Gentle yoga gives guests the option of using a chair throughout the session, and Intermediate classes challenge advanced students with more rigorous poses such as imitating a chair for the entire class.

The team further whips bodies into shape, that of a chair or otherwise, during cardio classes, which set heart-racing moves to high-energy beats during Zumba dance-fitness classes, or tummy-toning boot-camp classes. Yoga Plus also invites younger stretchers to enjoy the benefits of exercise with specialty classes such as Mom and Baby Yoga or Toddler Playtime. The latter involves moms working out alongside children, channeling babes' youthful energy or trying to imitate their extraordinarily effective laconic communication style.

As the sun rises each morning, the smell of dew summons golfers to Orchard Hills Golf Course, a scenic, 27-hole complex with one 18-hole course and a separate, 9-hole track. Cleaved through 6,026 yards of tree-lined terrain, the 18-hole monolith requires precise play and whispered Ralph Waldo Emerson quotes to conquer its topographical challenges. The par 72 layout showcases multiple memorable shots, including forced carries onto water-protected greens on both the second and fourth holes.

Slightly shorter than the other two nines, the East course blankets the countryside with a straightforward layout that begins with a tricky, 425-yard right dogleg. A staff of golf pros presides over Orchard Hills’ pro shop, where guests can upgrade their equipment, schedule a lesson to hone swings, or learn to read greens written in their doctor’s handwriting.

18-Hole Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,026 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 68.0 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 116 from the farthest tees
  • Three tee options

The Duck N Dodge is not your average 5K?it's chock full of gopher holes, a slip 'n' slide, and slingshot stands, and those who sport beards longer than 2 inches are treated like kings. On a course designated by flannel shirts, towels, bras, clothesline, and duct tape, runners tackle obstacles, solve challenges, and soak up mud along the way. The obstacles dare racers to scale mud-slicked ramps, leap fences, and rampage through Aunt Emmie's messy kitchen, where if you're not quick, you might get roped into dish duty. Once they cross the finish line sufficiently coated in mud, participants can refuel at the grub tub or snap commemorative shots in a photo booth. The Duck N Dodge 5K race is created for ages 13 and up, while youngsters can take part in the Duckling Dash which is intended for ages 6-12.

But the race is about more than just good ol' fashion fun. Because everyone who helps out on race day is a volunteer, the organizers are able to donate all proceeds to support charities including World Vision, Back2Back, and Warner Camp.

It's 7 p.m. on Thursday, and the lights have just turned off at Centershot Gun Range. A group of competitors can't see their targets, but they know that for a matter of seconds, each one will light up?first at 10 feet, then 20 feet, and so on, all the way up to 60 feet. This special Dark Shoot happens every week at Centershot, and it's one of the many ways the business establishes itself as more than a gun range. In addition, its staff hosts shooting leagues, and firearms instructors teach both private and group classes.
