Though Robert Trent Jones himself never stepped foot on Tiffany Greens Golf Club?it opened in 1999, three years after his last course design?his fingerprints are all over the par-72 links. That's because the course was designed by Robert Trent Jones II International, a firm started by the legendary architect's son and the torchbearer of his legacy. In true Jones fashion, the course's zoysia-grass fairways wind through rolling hills and past tree-lined creeks, presenting golfers with numerous opportunities to take calculated risks and show of their mid-range control. As players check off each leg of their round, they can make use of the Prolink GPS yardage and scoring system installed on every cart, which assists in nailing down yardages to the pin and finding the shortest route around a recently crashed UFO.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,977 yards from the back tees * Four sets of tees per hole * Scorecard

Nestled upon a patch of land that's passed through the hands of five generations, The Lessman Farm owes much to its current paterfamilias, Ronald Lessman, who began drawing in sightseers and visitors with his catfish pond, self-built house, and otherworldly sculpture gardens. Guests walk the shores or ply the waves of the 30-acre catfish lake, casting for regularly stocked populations of bass, perch, and crappie as they take in the majestic scenery of the rustic prairie. But what draws the most attention from visitors is Truckhenge, an arrangement of half-buried torpedo trucks, mysteriously lifting their engines skywards in what appears to be an industrial-age interpretation of Stonehenge. The Lessmans' outdoor installation is folk art on a monumental scale, proudly flaunting its offbeat flavor and inspiring visitors to express themselves without hesitation or apology or to bury themselves waist-deep in the ground at a 45-degree angle. A healthy respect for individualism and the avant-garde prevails throughout the property, with other attractions drawing attention from tourists, such as the enormous quonset hut farmhouse handmade from recycled materials or the huge beer-bottle glass wall mosaic.

Although martial arts help students master invaluable self-defense techniques that come in handy in extreme situations, continued practice helps them develop the confidence and self-control to get a handle on everyday life. Kyoshi Jamie Palmer?a sixth-degree black belt?and Sensei Ashleigh Palmer emphasize both of these aspects as they teach Okinawan-style martial arts at Olathe Karate Academy. The husband-wife team caters to the needs of students of all ages, showing children and adults how to perform the forearm strikes and forceful kicks of kenpo as well as the throws and grappling techniques of jiu jitsu.

As dedicated attendees continue to develop their skills, they can deepen their practice by studying how to spar or safely use traditional weapons, such as staffs, sais, and sarcastic one-liners. The Palmers even use traditional self-defense techniques to create metabolism-boosting workout regimens by leading kickboxing sessions.

All of these classes take place within Olathe Karate Academy's fully equipped practice studio, which sprawls across nearly 4,500 square feet of space. The gray, padded floors provides a welcome bit of cushion and support during class. Opposite the main room's wall of mirrors, a line of crimson heavy bags hang from the ceiling, allowing students to practice their strikes against a sturdy target.

Sunlight streams in through Westside Yoga's floor-to-ceiling windows, bathing the studio in light as expert instructors lead small groups through relaxing and tranquil yoga classes. Views of swaying, outdoor prairie grasses inspire students as they bend to elongate and strengthen muscles through various poses and deep-breathing exercises atop the room's smooth bamboo floors. Gentle yoga classes couple traditional postures with holistic ideas of aligning and grounding the body for those more interested in yoga's relaxing and restorative properties. Intermediate and advanced classes explore more rigorous routines designed to challenge students and their notions of what a cobra would look like with arms.

Passionate about creating a sense of community, Westside Yoga also offers yoga camps for kids from preschool to high school, welcoming them to stretch and grow in playful, age-appropriate sessions. Instructors also lead family yoga classes for all ages and seniors yoga specifically for guests over age 55.
