AllGolf Center provides large practice facilities where you can hone both your long and short game, rain or shine. Sharpen your drive on a two-tiered driving range with targets and landing areas, or focus on putting in the 36-hole mini-golf courses and practice-putting areas. Each AllGolf Center even has onsite 18-hole golf courses littered with hazards, where players can test their new techniques and audition new caddies. If you need a break, you can check out new clubs at the fully stocked pro shop or take horizontal swings in the onsite batting cages.
Xtreme Indoor Karting's 90,000-square-foot facility buzzes with the energy of Bowman Arrow karts as they whiz between the checkered flags that line the railing of the indoor go-kart track. All sporting Honda engines, three kart models take to the half-mile asphalt stage where child and adult racers show off their skills, reaching speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. The racing theme pervades the facility, including the 18 holes of the indoor miniature golf course, which are peppered with half tires and watered with tears of joy from past Indy 500 winners. More than 100 different interactive games—including racing simulators—flicker inside the arcade, and rows of billiards tables line the black-and-white checkered floors of the Finish Line Sports Bar. Charged with fueling all of these activities, the kitchen staff at the Fast Track Café whip together burgers, wraps, and pizzas. For kid's-only entertainment, the staff supervise a day camp throughout the summer months, when all of the country's teachers traditionally lose their keys to the school.
The 36 holes of Orangebrook Golf & Country Club nestle amid verdant fairways and palm trees, patiently waiting for the clink of a golf ball. Before they hit the green, duffers can stock up on balls and other golf-related necessities at the pro shop and fuel up afterward at Nikki’s On The Green with omelets, pastas, sandwiches, and salads. The lighted driving range, open until 10 p.m., lets putters enjoy a moonlight round without the hassle of constantly relighting the candles affixed to their wedges. Throughout the daytime hours, Orangebrook director of golf and PGA--certified instructor Bob Mallek doles out expert tips on form and swing. Orangebrook also hosts the Women's International 4-Ball golf tournament, the longest-running women's amateur event in the United States.
The one-hour golf lesson, which includes all course or practice-facility fees, requires golfers to bring their own clubs to have their golf needs assessed and addressed by a PGA-certified instructor. The private schooling may include tips on proper alignment, grip, posture, ball position, swing mechanics, and more. Cloud 9 has partnered with golfing professionals and tee-off locales all over the country, including six participating teachers and courses in the Miami area: Daniel Larkin at the Atlantis Country Club in Atlantis; Doug Feldman at The Club at Pelican Bay in Daytona Beach; Marty Maisa at Inverrary Country Club in Lauderhill; Lucas Cohen at Grand Palms Resort & Country Club in Pembroke Pines, multiple instructors at Palm-Aire Golf Academy in Pompano Beach, and Mark Arnold at Longboat Key Club & Resort in Longboat Key.
The verdant brainchild of course architect William Mitchell, Deerfield Country Club's 18-hole course plots a 4,120-yard track through lush groves of palm trees and impeccably maintained turf. An executive layout composed of nine par 3s and nine par 4s, the course offers diverse play in a time-efficient package. New greens and recently refurbished bunkers compete for golf balls' affection, their success determined by dowries offered by paternal flagsticks and sand-trap rakes. Golfers streamline straight-hitting swings and soft, greenside shots at the practice facilities, which include a driving range with practice bunkers and an immense putting green. Leather chairs await weary legs in the clubhouse, where golfers can slake their thirst or clean off sand wedges with a sudsy drink from the bar.
