A stone-lined creek and two ponds shape the layout at Cool Lake Golf Club, where golfers meander through a 6,008-yard circuit of 18 tricky greens. The creek cuts across four holes on the front nine before fanning out in a wishbone pattern on the back three, where it imperils the lives of golf balls and paper boats fashioned from scorecards. The longest hole on the course—the 590-yard, par-five fifth—is also the most difficult, featuring a dog-leg left and a second shot that must clear the creek to set up an approach. Before beginning their round, golfers can loosen up by hitting balls at the range or turning the ball-washer crank for several hours.

We are the one and only polo club here in the state of Indiana. We are located just north of Zionsville, Indiana and have a 20 horse farm with about thirteen members. We hold multiple charity events throughout the year and really like bringing the Sport of Kings to Indiana.
Course architect Timothy Liddy designed The Trophy Club's 247-acre course, which Golf Digest recently ranked as Indiana’s Best Public Course in 2008. Prairie Creek stream meanders throughout the links-style course, which is characterized by open fairways framed by native grasses, mounded terrain, and deep bunkers. The course kicks off with a par 4 and before reaching the most difficult stretch at hole 6, whose treacherous bunker lures dimpled orbs away from their destination with ample sunlight and free tanning lotion. Blue and fescue grasses create slick putting surfaces on each green, sparing players the need to unroll their own green carpets for putting through their final strokes. After a day of chipping and driving, golfers can refuel in the clubhouse with sandwiches, hot dogs, and frosty brews at the Hogan Bar and Grill.

Though Perfekt Fit is an intimate studio, it houses an impressive and diverse selection of fitness classes. Sunlight pours through its lofty windows as trainers motivate students to pedal furiously atop stationary cycles. During other classes, students twist into yoga poses, dance to energetic Latin-inspired Zumba routines, or work their abs in pilates atop the glossy hardwood floor. Groups line up along ballet barres during innovative barre classes, practicing traditional ballet exercises to strengthen muscles and improve coordination. The studio's expert trainers also offer private training sessions, where they work with students individually to accommodate unique fitness goals and overcome restrictive issues, from recovering from injuries to coaxing a stubborn tarantula out of their gym sneakers.
Mark Weghorst knows a thing or two about developing a sound golf game—the Carmel native played golf at Brebeuf Jesuit and went on to win the Mid-American Conference tournament as an individual while playing at Ohio's Miami University. After competing on several professional mini tours, Mark has returned to the Indianapolis area to help other golfers fine-tune their games. During lessons, golfers correct any flaws in their swings from Mark’s feedback, aided with V1 Pro video swing analysis and the trackman launch monitor . His lessons put to use all of the amenities at Zionsville Golf Practice Center, which has a driving range with heated stalls, a wedge range for short-game practice, and a plane board—a training device that helps golfers break the habit of slicing a shot into another dimension.

What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
I am best known for my children's art classes. I have been teaching art for eight years and have been a professional artist for more than 20 years. I teach the art of creativity, which means that I teach art history and techniques from different artists throughout history. All of my classes are drop-off, including my classes for toddlers ages 2.5?3.
Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?
I offer a very flexible service to my clients. Since I am a parent as well, I know how difficult it can be to fit everything into a week, and I don't want art to get lost in the shuffle. I make all of my classes "as your schedule allows," which means parents can purchase a set of eight classes and use them as they wish. I keep track of when the child attends so they don't have to, and if they can't make it one week, it is not necessary to make it up.
What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars?
Make sure your child is dressed for making a mess. I do have smocks the kids can wear, but it never fails that red paint or oil pastel finds their way onto a new dress. Also, parking in the village of Zionsville can be tricky sometimes. I find it easier to park one block north of Cedar Street on the residential streets if all of the spaces in front of the studio are filled. I am also happy to come out and bring a child in from their car if the parent has other kids in the car or can't find a space. They can call my cell phone and I will run out to get them.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Because I am a small business?and I mean small?every child gets my full attention and expertise. I am the only teacher, and there is only one class going at a time, so it is calm, cozy, and comfortable for the students. Class sizes are small, and I tailor each class to the age group, so everyone's needs are met. I also have a long-standing reputation in the area as a talented and caring teacher. Since I live in town and have been teaching for eight years, I know almost every elementary-aged child in the area, and am always thrilled to be recognized and hugged at the grocery store. I take my reputation as "Miss Jenny" very seriously, and the parents feel good about leaving their kids with me, because they know they will be loved as well as taught.
