Home to an event on the 1990 and 1991 Ben Hogan Tours, Pine Valley Golf Resort's challenging par 72 or 73 course touts 6,644 yards of Bermuda fairways and bentgrass greens. After warming up with two buckets of balls at the driving range—which is conveniently defenseless, lacking both sand traps and golf-ball-eating caddies—players can head out to the natural rolling terrain and demand a fun and challenging round from the scenic course, which is sprinkled with tranquil lakes, oxygen, and a covered bridge. As hauling a golf bag around all day can be tiring, Pine Valley will provide golfers with a motorized cart for stylishly puttering from hole to hole.

Golf Shores Fun Center's mini metropolis of family fun welcomes guests of all ages with two mini-golf courses, an arcade, and ample space for groups of frolicking tykes. Sapphire waters trickle down stone walls and spring from rocky outcrops alongside the outdoor mini-golf course, where subtly sloping greens can complicate even the shortest of gimmies. At Golf Shores' indoor course, players traverse a darkened wonderland illuminated by black lights and neon décor, where both jungle- and underwater-themed decorations convince phosphorescent golf balls that they are amphibious.

Alongside the putters' park, joystick jockeys can warp into the Center's video arcade and take aim at pixilated game in Extreme Hunting or contemplate the nutritional value of blue ghosts while playing Ms. Pac-Man. The Center also encompasses a cozy coffee shop with free wireless Internet.

An 18-hole, par 72 golf course undulates across the grounds of Glenmary Country Club. The front nine showcase picturesque holes six and seven, both par 4 and nestled into woods with lush foliage framing each fairway like a leafy, squirrel-infested beard. With a large water hazard guarding the 12th hole, golfers aim to vault their shots over the water and onto the green using a 9-iron, wedge, or T-shirt cannon. Before hitting the links, warm up short games at the course's pitching and putting greens or at one of its two outdoor bays for driving.

Since 1994, golfers have traversed the bermuda fairways and cleverly dodged the natural springs that mark the course at Indian Springs Golf Club. With water playing a tricky role on every single hole, the par 72 championship track is a true challenge. Holes range from the relatively simple 365-yard par 4 opener to the course's signature 11th. The 18th hole caps the round with a stream that must be crossed three times, plus bunkers that nearly surround the green, forcing players to put their own punctuation mark on the day's festivities.

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,698 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 73 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 131 from the back tees

Composed of seven par 3s and two par 4s each no longer than 265 yards, the nine holes of Cherry Valley Golf Course present both the beginning and seasoned golfer with low-stress opportunities for improvement. Players zip around the 1,584-yard stretch aboard 2006-model Club Car Precedent golf carts—a far cry from the options available when the course was built in 1932 and players had to rely on zeppelins for transport. Gerald Mason has served as the head professional since he bought the course in 2001, helping players overcome game hurdles through one-on-one lessons.

Course at a Glance:

  • 9-hole, par 29 course
