Make the most of the summer's end and the school year's impending beginning at Maple Hill Sports Center, where gamers of all ages engage in friendly contests. The mini-golf course features a challenging layout of aquatic holes, complemented by amphibious floating golf balls to aid retrieval. Players can take a risk, putt for the win, and net back any failed attempts without dampening their doublet and breeches. At the Aeroball cages, trampolining foes go jump-for-jump, competing for ballistic superiority of the hybrid basketball-volleyball-moon-exploring sport. Back on Earth, ballplayers of all ages can swing away in one of the five baseball and softball batting cages, all of which come standard with options to raise, lower, or bowdlerize the pitching machine.
A NASCAR racing experience lets racers and passengers feel the rush of flying around the 1.33-mile Nashville Superspeedway. During the ride-along, passengers can sit back and sip Slurpees while a professional racing instructor takes the wheel of a NASCAR race car, reaching top speeds of up to 170 mph. Scream in harmony with the screaming engine during three adrenaline-filled laps around the Superspeedway, after which you'll be presented with a 6"x8" picture of the adventure.
Sporting two distinct nine-hole layouts built more than 20 years apart, Ravenwood Country Club's 18-hole golf course boasts 6,264 yards of splendid fairways running alongside the stately grounds' cerulean ponds and misting fountains. The lengthier of the two, the front nine eases rusty swings and slow-to-wake irons into the round with a relatively open, gently undulating layout before clubbers must contend with the dramatic elevation changes, larger greens, and omnipresent water hazards that await in the course's second act. Before duffers return through the majestic double doors of the clubhouse, they must traverse the climactic 18th hole, a 385-yard par 4 with a stream stationed squarely in the landing zone of aggressive drives and local spacecraft.
Along with its picturesque par 72, Ravenwood Country Club encompasses a recently refurbished outdoor swimming pool and eight tennis courts flanked by covered spectator areas. Guests weary from days looping the course, lapping the pool, or combing the tennis courts for edible neon fuzz can retire to the club's dining facilities, which host everything from quiet dinner dates to lavish events and celebrations.
