Nestled against the cerulean waves of the Intracoastal Waterway for more than a mile, Lake Worth Golf Course?s 18-hole layout stretches across 6,100 yards of classic wetland terrain. With sparse tree lines and generous fairways throughout the course, Lake Worth?s relatively open, par 70 layout beckons to long-ball hitters, though particularly errant balls could wind up among the bottom-feeding trawl and heist-planning porpoises lurking in the waterway, which hugs the entire east side of the course. A nimble golf cart zips twosomes across the grassy monolith, expertly slaloming through palm trees and spinning its wheels with glee after each breathtaking birdie or stunning attempt at snapping a club shaft.

Paintballs and airsoft ammo whiz through the air across East Coast Extreme Inc.'s 8 acres of simulated battlegrounds. On wooded fields, forest canopies cast shadows over paintball players as they weave through tree trunks, duck into ditches, and launch more acrylic salvos than a frustrated cartoonist. Elsewhere, splatterless ammo fires across 2 acres of airsoft fields. East Coast Extreme Inc.'s pro shop helps players stock up for these friendly battles. Its rich blue walls enclose a sea of airsoft and paintball gear, including guns with flashlights and laser scopes as well as safety gear.
It can take a lifetime to fully master the intricacies of golf. Fortunately, Golf Professional Services is home to more than a dozen instructors who've dedicated their careers to that lofty goal. These coaches help adults and juniors to become complete players who can hit the ball straight and sink putts without replacing one hand with a putter head. Adult students advance through a five-level training regimen, beginning with an introduction to the game and progressing through on-course practice and video analysis.
In addition to helping grown-ups lower their handicaps, the training center is also home to the Junior Golf Foundation of America, a 501c(3) nonprofit founded in 1995. Using a trio of municipal facilities furnished by the Palm Beach County Parks and Recreation Department, the foundation gives all children the chance to learn the game and inherit its positive life values. Since inception, more than 65,000 youngsters have enrolled in the year-round program, enriching young lives while expanding the game to new generations.

On most days at Palm Beach Strike Zone, one can see an onslaught of bowling balls traveling down the lanes. On others, it's a helmet-wielding maniac sliding headfirst into the pins. Whatever the method employed, the alley's quality lanes ensure fair play and minimal friction. At the sports bar, visitors practice their bowling biceps by repeatedly lifting mugs of beer and slices of pizza, craning their necks to watch flat-screen televisions. Party rooms give birthday kids the chance to address their friends in private, before retiring to the lanes to take in a light and sound show as they bowl. And poker and cornhole games round out Palm Beach Strike Zone's opportunities for fun.
Monkey Joes bursts with wall-to-wall inflatable slides, jumps, and obstacle courses that offer plenty of supervised, active entertainment for children 12 and younger. Sock-clad kids run, jump, and cavort across colorful inflatable structures—whose surfaces are all regularly sanitized—as they interact with one another and struggle against the chains of gravity and physics. Although Monkey Joes provides close monitoring of activity, the staff encourages parents to play an active role in the supervision of their children. They also can spend time in an adult area equipped with free WiFi, flat-screen televisions, and computer stations. A separate play area makes a safe haven for kids 3 and younger, and concessions refresh depleted guests.
