Certified professional photographer Gene Taylor has fine-tuned his artistic vision while working in photojournalism and portrait photography for more than 30 years. During classes at Your Photo Safari, Gene introduces students to the photographic arts and the workings of DSLR cameras. Sessions begin in classroom settings, allowing students to get acquainted with camera basics as well as advanced features such as setting white balance and reducing blur. After learning how to navigate the multiple settings and buttons on their digital cameras, students traipse to area gardens to explore the natural world through their lenses. The hands-on experience allows students to take home artfully composed shots of plants bathed in natural light or trees planking over riverbanks in a bid for Internet fame.

Just across Swan Lake from the Furman University campus lie the 18 holes of the school's golf club, hallowed training grounds that have produced graduates-cum-pro golfers Dottie Pepper and Brad Faxon. The par 72 layout underwent a major renovation in 2008, showcasing an updated version of the same fairways and greens walked by those famous alumni. Players tee off from one of five sets of tees—the tips are painted the school's trademark purple—in their pursuit of true-rolling greens, composed of a hybrid Bermuda grass called Champion.

As a college course, it's only fitting that players can also look to the club for help brushing up on their skills. The onsite driving range presents better opportunities for solo study than putting among the deep recesses of the library stacks, while a cadre of PGA professionals offer their expertise when players need a nudge in the right direction.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,994 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 73.4 from the back tees * Course slope of 127 from the back tees * Five sets of tees per hole * Scorecard

Five bowling pins wait at the end of each of Allen Arms Indoor Range's shooting lanes. At the signal, competitors fire, and the first to strike all five claims victory. Such is a common scene at the range, where friendly competitions foster a communal environment. Depending on the day, it might be a low-lighting match, a bowling-pin match, or a bulls-eye match, which uses traditional paper targets. Of course, neophytes can't start competing right away. To that end, Allen Arms' certified instructors teach classes such as Intro to Action Handgun Competition. They also train in non-competitive areas, including handgun maintenance and defensive shotgun shooting.
