The Five Seasons Family Sports Club houses tennis courts, a dining area, fitness facilities, swimming pools, and a full-service spa under one roof. Within air-conditioned indoor courts or on outdoor clay courts, racquet slingers compete in friendly bouts to sharpen swings, refine backhands, and showcase grunting abilities. Members can also break a sweat in exercise areas speckled with modern cardio equipment and weights or cool off in an Olympic-sized pool with diving wells and wading areas. Before meeting others for a postgame beverage at the lively café, clients can wander to the spa for a relaxing massage or partake in a sports workshop to gain a firm grasp on game mechanics.

As the PGA Director of Instruction at Smock Driving Range-MZ III Golf Academy, Michael Zedrick III molds the swings of adult and junior golfers into sound strokes worthy of repetition. Michael’s arrival on the range marks the latest stop in a glittering career that includes two years spent as an assistant at TPC Scottsdale and a stint studying under Hank Haney at ESPN Golf Schools. He also boasts certification as a Titleist Performance Institute instructor. Michael puts all of this know-how to use during his intensive lessons, which he caps off with Titleist V-1 Pro video swing analysis that can be accessed via the Internet for post-lesson study or as entertainment at a gathering of extended family.

A bitter cold wind whips across fairways, and a thick layer of snow blankets once-fertile greens. These aren't ideal golfing conditions. Rather than letting avid golfers languish indoors or risk neighborhood resentment by hitting drives through open windows, the Golf Dome furnishes an indoor golf setting sealed off from the vagaries of Mother Nature. Golfers empty driving range buckets and take lessons from pro instructors under the shelter of a massive bubble, preventing rust from accumulating over months of inactivity. Though a golf-specific facility in name, the facility also hosts other sports inside its cozy environs, such as soccer, baseball, and softball.

The narrow fairways of Thatcher Golf Course wind through dense forest that looms threateningly and forces players to exhibit control. Its nine holes are spread over a short and relatively flat layout. Water and sand hazards lie ready to swallow wayward golf balls on four holes, and mature oak trees guard three others, thwarting approaches with outstretched boughs. Should golfers want to threaten the course par of 35, they must rely on their accuracy, as opposed to distance or guardian golfmothers.
