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.
Garden Golf & Country Club celebrates its centennial in 2012 and looks back on a rich history as the course where golf legends Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson first learned the game. Despite a $1.5 million renovation in 2001, the course retains the character and charm of its early days, including a unique layout with a par 37 front nine and par 34 back nine that incorporates back-to-back par 5s. Just as they did during the Roaring '20s and the nationwide golf ball shortage that followed, players carefully guide their golf balls down wide fairways lined with pockets of dense forestation. A large lake and postcard-worthy fountain form the centerpiece of the course, surrounded by manicured fairways on each side. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 71 course * Total length of 6,166 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 66.3 from the back tees * Course slope of 109 from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole
At Sigma Performance Swimming, dedicated instructors coach everyone from toddlers taking their first splash to adults training for professional trials. The waters in 25-yard indoor and outdoor pools are churned to a froth as swimmers work to hone the school’s three focuses: technique, speed, and endurance. With a ratio of five students to one instructor, pupils are granted ample individual attention as they learn basic aquatic strokes. Students can consult footage of their form during an underwater-stroke analysis to further refine their technique. As their talents grow, swimmers can join Sigma’s nationally competitive teams or set personal goals, prepare for races, and perfect their sailfish Halloween costumes.
