The 18-hole course at Water Oak Country Club sprawls across 300 acres, intersecting with the land's water hazards and rolling terrain. Twelve of the greens were recently renovated with Miniverde grass, a strain of Bermuda that makes the putting surfaces easier to care for while producing a reliably consistent roll. Players making the turn, finishing a round, or scratching that thing on their back with their 9-iron can head into the Sandwedge Restaurant. Awaiting inside is a wide assortment of sandwiches, burgers right off the grill, and even breakfast items to slake appetites built up on the course.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 5,944 yards from the back tees * Three sets of tees per hole * Scorecard

Vllage Flyers’s fleet of aviators soars across cloud banks in an X-Air Light Sport plane at 90 mph, whipping past lakes and forests thousands of feet below. A nonprofit flying club, Village Flyers aims to make the thrill of flight more accessible to the Orlando community, both by granting its members access to the 3-year-old X-Air and by welcoming beginner flyers into their ranks. Boasting at least 35 years’ teaching experience each, the club’s FAA--certified instructors also prepare pilots for their sport-pilot license, a program that includes air time and ground school. Each instructor takes a casual approach to defying gravity, inviting students to learn at their own pace by deciding how often they fly and whether they want to learn to skywrite in calligraphy or shorthand.
Dedicated to responsible public education and the conservation of endangered and rare animals, the staffers of the Florida International Teaching Zoo tend to a diverse collection of living beings while teaching students to do the same. Amid the rustling feathers of Lady Amherst pheasants and the uncontrollable laughter of spotted hyenas reading the works of Oscar Wilde aloud, the school’s pupils spend days practicing their cage-side manner and stockpiling wildlife know-how through classes and conservation projects around the globe. To round out their tuition, students helm zoo tours for visitors four days a week, practicing their newly minted public-management skills and granting guests a chance to take in the wonders of the natural world in an intimate setting.
