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.

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.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 7,208 yards from the farthest set of tees * Course rating of 74.0 from the farthest set of tees * Slope rating of 131 from the farthest set of tees * See photos and stats for each hole.

Within Buccaneer Bay Water Park Center’s sprawling 9,000 square feet of space, the delighted shrieks of frolicking children ricochet off the cavernous ceilings. Surrounded by ranks of slowly nodding palm trees, kids scramble up the sides of a replica pirate ship before whooshing down the slick red slides, landing feet-first in the clean water, or else skimming the surface like a smooth rock or a pelican thrown overhand. The churning warmth of a hot tub turns tension into soothed sighs, which drift toward an arcade full of flashing redemption machines. Gaggles of youngsters celebrating birthdays cannonball into the pool, fueled by slices of cake.
