The gravity-savvy professionals and instructors at Air Indiana Skydiving Center oversee safe and controlled adrenaline rushes every year between late March and early November. In addition to a comprehensive ground school, they also teach practical skills with training jumps that leave from Delphi Municipal Airport. Over time, they help familiarize students with skydiving by leading controlled tandem jumps, instructor-assisted deployments, and accelerated free falls that exit planes from as high as 9,500 feet.
In addition to its staff of instructors, Air Indiana Skydiving Center also hosts a professional skydiving team. The team of pro jumpers can perform demonstration jumps for company picnics or groundbreaking ceremonies for the neighborhood's new wind tunnel.
Tall, stately pines and deciduous oaks have been flourishing at The Golf Preserve at Frankfort’s 18-hole, par 71 course since its first flagstick sprouted in 1926. Prairie Creek poses scenic obstacles as it meanders through multiple fairways, and avian species found only in central Indiana frequent the course’s emerald alleyways to enjoy lush vegetation and sage advice from feral caddies roaming the land. Golfers must avoid strategically placed white sand bunkers to conquer lengthy par 5’s on holes 3, 12, and 15. After a challenging round, clubbers can unwind at the course’s restaurant while plotting strategies for dominating the course with a new bag of trick sticks made entirely of recycled pool noodles.
Established in 1926, Frankfort Golf Club's verdant landscape is complemented by mature pine and oak trees lining the fairways and impeccably manicured greens that accept putts seven days a week. The par 71 course challenges golfers and retired confectioners with white sugar-sand bunkers, rolling fields of heather, and wild golf carts grazing on excess roughage. The crystalline waters of Prairie Creek wind their way through the fairways and come into play on 12 of the 18 holes. Although not included with today’s deal, two on-site bars hydrate guests with flowing libations, and a practice facility cultivates fundamentals with putting greens and trophy hoisting stations.
A stone-lined creek and two ponds shape the layout at Cool Lake Golf Club, where golfers meander through a 6,008-yard circuit of 18 tricky greens. The creek cuts across four holes on the front nine before fanning out in a wishbone pattern on the back three, where it imperils the lives of golf balls and paper boats fashioned from scorecards. The longest hole on the course—the 590-yard, par-five fifth—is also the most difficult, featuring a dog-leg left and a second shot that must clear the creek to set up an approach. Before beginning their round, golfers can loosen up by hitting balls at the range or turning the ball-washer crank for several hours.

We are the one and only polo club here in the state of Indiana. We are located just north of Zionsville, Indiana and have a 20 horse farm with about thirteen members. We hold multiple charity events throughout the year and really like bringing the Sport of Kings to Indiana.
Course architect Timothy Liddy designed The Trophy Club's 247-acre course, which Golf Digest recently ranked as Indiana’s Best Public Course in 2008. Prairie Creek stream meanders throughout the links-style course, which is characterized by open fairways framed by native grasses, mounded terrain, and deep bunkers. The course kicks off with a par 4 and before reaching the most difficult stretch at hole 6, whose treacherous bunker lures dimpled orbs away from their destination with ample sunlight and free tanning lotion. Blue and fescue grasses create slick putting surfaces on each green, sparing players the need to unroll their own green carpets for putting through their final strokes. After a day of chipping and driving, golfers can refuel in the clubhouse with sandwiches, hot dogs, and frosty brews at the Hogan Bar and Grill.
