Ste. Genevieve Golf Club makes good on its promise as a golf course accessible for all skill levels, and then some. Four sets of tees is something of an unwritten standard for most golf courses, though some more generous ones furnish five. Ste. Genevieve, meanwhile, has six. Beyond the Blue, White, Yellow, and Red tees lay a Level 1 and Level 2 set, ideal for youngsters just learning the game, those with slower swing speeds, and those desperate for a hole-in-one that will finally impress their fathers. These tee options make the course as short as 2,256 yards or as long as 6,396, though challenges lurk around every dogleg regardless of length. A stream cuts across several fairways on the front nine, and tree lines run along the fairways throughout.

Crown Ridge Tiger Sanctuary, a USDA–approved big-cat rescue facility, plays motherly host to a roaring family composed of five tigers and a lone lioness with a sultry swagger. Adopting philanthropists can align with their striped or unstriped spirit animal, choosing from noble felines such as the elder Mohan—a white male tiger with blue eyes, a pink nose, and a natural screen presence—or Raja—the relentlessly caring mother of sisters Gracie and Thor.

At a Glance

Chief Instructor Mike Cochran is a living contradiction of the idiom that ?those who can?t do, teach.? Having spent 23 years in the US Army, including 11 as an operator with the 1st SFOD-D Delta Force, Mr. Cochran shares his expertise by training military forces, law enforcement officials, and civilians in tactical situations at his expansive facility. His team of instructors, which comprises additional military special-forces members and former SWAT operators, oversees shooters, who learn the basics in a 100-seat classroom before practicing in one of the outdoor facilities. There, they are allowed to draw, move, and shoot in dynamic scenarios where they make use of cover and engage multiple targets.
