Eisenhower Yacht Club (EYC) gathers boat lovers to share their passion for and knowledge of runabouts, cruisers, houseboats, and sailboats. Members of EYC have access to factory-trained mechanics and upkeep services at the Eisenhower Marina, which is nestled in the lush greenery of Eisenhower State Park along Lake Texoma.
Boat-less patrons can visit the harbor and rent a pontoon, which holds up to 10 people for on-water parties, sightseeing, or fishing. To take in the jagged shoreline marked by numerous inlets, visitors can also rent a bicycle and cruise bike paths before stopping at the beach for a picnic or a swim. EYC also sells everything from boats and yachts to small watercraft and boat slips that fit under boat evening gowns.
Blue Sky Media leverages a bevy of strategic marketing partnerships with premier Texas courses to grant golfers access to some of the state's finest fairways. The group's annual Blue Sky Golf Passes dole out fistfuls of discounts to courses throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area, freeing up some coins for golfers to use as ball-markers or throw into water hazards to wish for more coins. Between putts and drives, discounts on pro shop gear and fare refuel hard-swinging golfers and caddies exhausted from polishing the dimples of each ball.
The Footprints of Charity Golf Tournament sends teams of four driving and putting over the gently rolling hills of Stone Creek Country Club as they raise funds for humanitarian, educational, and spiritual aid at home and abroad. Holding to the tenets of four-man-scramble-style play, the tournament snakes over 18 holes as golfers take turns shooting from the best of four lies or combining powers to hit a single ball at the exact same time. Chipping and putting through the verdant par 72 course, players navigate a gauntlet of sand traps, doglegs, and narrow fairways en route toward a challenging 18th hole hugged by a creek and capped with a rolling green. In addition to the four-man scramble, tournament contestants are entered in longest drive and closest-to-the-pin challenges, which reward excellence in a single aspect of the game, just like college football's bounciest onsite kick trophy.
