The golf carts at The Woodlands Golf Club take players on a grassy roller-coaster ride over frequent changes in elevation and down fairways brimming with challenging lies at every turn. Play intertwines perilously with a winding creek at many points, with a scant three holes, like a cautious wicked witch, managing to avoid water altogether. All 18 holes launch players down zoysia grass fairways from one of four tees, challenging each club in the bag en route to greens that hold approaches and roll true. On the last hole, the newly refurbished clubhouse provides a scenic backdrop for the homestretch.

Mixing the outdoor ruggedness of paintball with the pain-free shooting of laser tag, Mission Ready Outdoor Laser Tag drops combatants of all ages into a fun-filled, bruise-free arena. Hay bales and obstacles dot the outdoor course, offering shooters a decent vantage point from which to unload volleys of laser beams in efforts to win the field. The coursemasters can accommodate large parties for special occasions or bring all of the required gear inside for private indoor sessions that forge friendships easier than legislation mandating daily compliments.
Carved through the heavily wooded bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River, Lockhaven Golf Club's 18-hole layout takes golfers into an undulating circuit of tree-lined corridors. The par 72 course spans 6,880 yards from the tips, presenting a formidable challenge as the arboreal obstacles compound the length and fast, bentgrass greens pose an equal test to short game skills. Golfers can prepare for their round at the on-site driving range and practice green.
An Olympic-sized swimming pool fosters warm-weather fun with lanes for swimming laps and a walk-in kid pool for younger swimmers. After a day of recreation, guests can unwind at the bar and grill or enjoy a gourmet meal in the formal dining room that overlooks the golf course.
