A golf getaway for clubbers of all abilities, The Georgia Trail encompasses a nine-hole executive course, an outdoor miniature-golf course, practice facilities, and a full-service dining area. The executive course traverses 2,254 yards of diverse terrain, where five par 3s beckon to players seeking their first hole-in-one, and four par 4s?including one that measures a relatively lengthy 436 yards?ensure that drivers' self-esteem won't deflate from a day of inactivity. A 2.5-acre lake and multiple streams and ponds loom near critical landing zones on all but three holes, placing a premium on pinpoint drives or 9-irons that double as snorkels. Alongside the course rests a 25-station, all-grass driving range, where players can hone their orb-blasting form before a round.

The Champions Trail putting course challenges players across a par 42 layout that emulates a full 18-hole course with hazards that include bunkers, fairways, rough, and out-of-bounds areas. Putt-putt posses roll orbs across lush synthetic grass, which deftly stands in for natural grass as its kempt hedges beckon to lonely lawn mowers. After a long day of driving, putting, and kicking balls across the multifaceted facility, guests can retreat to Augusta's Restaurant and look out over their conquered terrain as they enjoy entrees and drinks from the full-service bar.

After more than two decades of playing golf and teaching students from beginners to professionals—including Web.com Tour player Jimmy Brandt—Sath Nop has distilled his wisdom into an overarching golf philosophy. Helping innumerable students advance to the next level has strengthened his belief that every golfer possesses talent and can reach their potential through discipline and awareness of their game. Sath believes that the teacher merely assists in the endeavor, offering guidance to whittle away short-game strokes and improve power, accuracy, and consistency. He also coaches course-management skills and other mental aspects, such as reading ball flight and determining what club to use in certain lies. Sath can conduct his lessons at Paragon Golf Center in English, French, or Cambodian.

The Actor’s Edge transforms understudies into top talent with performance classes and camps that unlock the artist within, build confidence, and inspire new friendships. In the acting camp (ages 7+), budding thespians learn how to breathe life into scripts through scene study, solid character work, and confidence-producing theater games, creating honest and memorable performances without falling back on the common crutch of the spit-take. Students inclined toward song and dance can perfect sashays with musical-theater classes (ages 7–12), which focus on breath, tone production and resonance, and choreography with influences from jazz, ballet, hip-hop, and videos of cats on trampolines.

Though Clinch Martial Arts Academy undoubtedly teaches their students the most effective way to fend off attacks, the core of its teaching is made up of something less tangible, but much more important. Kids Karate classes, for example, give youngins the fortitude to not only stand up to bullies, but to not fall victim to peer pressure. Using games, rather than four-hour marathons of The Karate Kid, instructor Chin Lee imparts sound self-defense strategies, including how to use words rather than fists to resolve conflict.

That discipline extends to adult classes as well. In sessions such as Muay Thai kickboxing, students push themselves to the blurred edge of their physical limits while lambasting heavy bags and thai pads. Though each session is physically demanding, the state-of-the-art studio emphasizes safety, outfitting its floors with shock-absorbent padding to drastically reduce taxing joints.

Behind the name of Two Gold Taekwondo is a man's accomplishments. Master Ha Tae Kyung seized gold medals in his sport while representing Korea in the 1988 and 1992 games. He then moved to Georgia and founded a dojo to train the world's next crop of Taekwondo stars. Today, his staff oversees two dojos in the state, training pupils for high-level competition and imparting the many benefits of the sport: improved agility, discipline, fitness, and ability to defend themselves. These skills are especially important for youth, so Two Gold Taekwondo offers after-school training programs that include bus transit from school and time to complete homework or write screenplays for martial-arts movies in the margins of their textbooks.
