Grand Slam Driving Ranges helps wedge-wielders of all abilities sharpen their swings with well-groomed practice facilities. Two jumbo, 105-ball buckets give golfers hundreds of chances for self-coaching via interior monologue. Carved out of the verdant Niagara escarpment, the Grand Slam Golf Centre in Milton sets swingers up with 30 hitting stations equipped with grass tee decks. A chipping green and sizeable putting green give assorted clubs a chance to strut their stuff, and a practice bunker outfitted with mock sand goblins ensures players come up against the full spectrum of obstacles afforded by the average game. Alternatively, the Grand Slam Fairways in Waterdown supplies oscillating shoulders with 65 all-grass hitting stations from which to paint fast-moving arcs across the air while ironing out the wrinkles in their short game.

Spread across 270 historic acres, Knollwood Golf Course is a challenging 36-hole facility comprised of the Old Course set right alongside the New Course—both designed by well-regarded course superintendent Jack Harris in 1970 and 1990, respectively. Players can opt for a round on the Old Course or the New Course links and enjoy hole designs that embrace the natural Ancaster topography. Elevated tees and long, perplexing par 5 holes with ominous names such as Buried Treasure and Redemption lead to finely timed fairways that open up into stirring panoramas. The New Course entices advanced club swingers, and the Old Course's more accessible series of par 4 holes with large, accommodating greens is appealing for beginners.

Knollwood players don clean-cut golf attire and enjoy a golfer's paradise that has been open to the public since 1970 and keeps players happy with sprightly paced 10-minute tee times, on-site restaurants and beverage carts, and a "no-argue" rain cheque policy. The facility's proud groundskeepers maintain large, naturalized areas on the course intended to encourage the wildlife to thrive and occasionally join in on a game.

At Stoney Creek Tennis Club, seven well-lit outdoor courts set the stage for group lessons led by seasoned club pro Rasim Sehovic, who brings more than 20 years of racquet wrangling to the court. During the one-hour group lesson, athletic acolytes enjoy one-on-one training time with Sehovic and other gifted coaches, ensuring students get a chance to have their swings closely analyzed and their pregame war cries critiqued. After the lesson draws to a close, students can meander over to the clubhouse to lounge on the shaded patio and enjoy the tennis-ball machine halftime performance.

Bowlerama keeps spherical souls thriving with 5- and 10-pin bowling and late-night cosmic contests, as well as a variety of specialty leagues. Lace up a pair of rented clogs ($3.25), then light up the lanes with a fiery strike or by accidentally dropping an armful of flashlights ($4.31 per person). The lanes are open seven days a week, giving boisterous bowlers ample opportunities for ball-rolling bedlam while sapping bewildered pins’ will to live (call ahead to check availability). Cosmic bowling takes place Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights, with club music thumping through the alley as black lights reveal neon grins and glowing lip marks on victorious bowling balls.

Ontario College of Health & Technology educates its students to herald a healthier and safer tomorrow. Through programs that focus on disciplines as diverse as massage therapy and private investigation, the private career college readies pupils for long-term success in their chosen field. Yet the school expands its scope beyond career tracks, offering the casual learner an arsenal of new skills. The culinary department, for example, takes two forms: by day, Red Seal–certified cooking instructors train full-time students to become chefs in restaurants and hotels, but by night, they oversee proteges' first steps into the kitchen or second steps back into the kitchen after realizing they left their headlights on. In comprehensive workshops, students learn to properly sauté, simmer, and bake dishes so that they can treat their family to a nice meal or throw a fitting party for a foodie friend.

The Fall Festival encourages merriment with a parallel list of pursuits, along with autumnal activities such as exploring the farm's pumpkin patch, outsmarting a corn maze, and creating winter coats out of fallen leaves.
