Belvedere Golf Club, named one of the state's top 20 courses by GolfLink, eases the jonesings of club swingers seven days a week with its Bermuda fairways and bentgrass greens. Lush, sloping hills and stately trees surround the course, a 1949 brainchild of Hall of Fame designer Herman Hackbarth, who took care to swath each shapely dogleg in the finest of canine pantyhose. Whizzing hither and yon in electric golf carts less than two years old, players can take on pastoral obstacles such as greenside bunkers, water hazards, and squads of guerilla hobbits. From the tips, the course measures 6,767 yards, with a par of 72, course rating of 73.1, and film rating of PG-13 for some strong language near the woods and sand traps.

Glenwood Country Club challenges golfers with a recently renovated par 72 course before rewarding them with a newly furnished lodge situated amid rolling woodland. Stands of native hardwood and pine tower over 6,561 yards of bent-grass greens and bermuda-grass fairways, whose steep inclines demand more spin control than the tazmanian devil's presidential campaign. Orbs launch from tees cached in narrow chutes and triumphantly storm the peninsula that protects the course's signature par 3 hole. Players can leave the ponds, rock formations, and herds of wild caddies roving the verdant links to practice swings on the driving range.

Howard Malpass enjoys sharing the sport of fly fishing with others, whether teaching a course on the subject at Bossier Parish Community College or showing a child how to tie their first fly. At his shop, Gray Wolf Fly Shop, he draws on this passion for teaching during three-hour introductory courses that include hands-on casting practice and basic tips on how to use flies to attract fish rather than attempt to prove spontaneous generation. His expertise also helps him match patrons with Wapsi fly-tying products, sturdy casting rods, and all-terrain gear, such as durable Korkers fishing boots.

The halls of the Marjorie Lyons Playhouse are decked in bows of sarcasm as David Sedaris’s sardonic diatribe The Santaland Diaries fills mature audiences with Yuletide cheer and apropos humbug. Adapted from Sedaris’s popular irreverent essay, the play features actor Luke Thomas Eddy embodying the foul mouth and uncomfortable shoes of Crumpet the Elf during a scintillating one-hour, one-man performance. Tearing at a famous department store’s holiday façade like a grizzly bear rudely woken up from hibernation, Crumpet reveals the sordid lives of Santa’s little helpers as they endure the side effects of the holidays. Chock-full of one-liner chestnuts and hilarious humiliation, the show ensures audiences howl with empathy as the embittered elf rants against baffled tourists, entitled parents, and the anti-elves known as children. Like standing under sulfuric mistletoe, The Santaland Diaries gives the season both a heartfelt kiss and a swift kick in the chimney.

The fun, active group classes at Drew LeBlanc's Elite Fitness boost health and vigor under the guidance of friendly, professional trainers. Cardio workouts, such as calorie-crushing dance-based Zumba, maximize heart and lung efficiency, while the brawn-boosting Bodypump class turns everyday muscles into washboards, six-packs, and other useful household items. Diligent exercisers can fight the battle of the bulge with a weight-loss boot camp or learn to protect their neighborhoods from gangs of delinquent punching bags with kickboxing lessons. The modern fitness center also houses private shower facilities for postworkout de-salting.

With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were accidentally installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circle of hydraulic resistance machines designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage machine maneuvering and muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing momentum, the hydraulic machines use body weight and fitness levels to create resistance that matches abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.
