Fairways wind through groves of trees and cattail-lined marshland to form Oakwood Golf Course's 18-hole, 6,045-yard layout. During the round, golfers are faced with water hazards that come into play on nine holes and demand accurate shots and amphibious golf carts. Atop the elevated tee box on the par-three 15th—the course's signature hole—golfers' tee shots must arch over a pond and stick on a contoured green 135 yards in the distance. Oakwood Golf Course's driving range and two separate practice greens prime swings for upcoming rounds with areas for putting, chipping, or discreetly kicking out of a bad lie. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par-72 course * Length of 6,045 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 69.1 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 125 from the farthest tees * Three tee options * Scorecard
Open seven days a week all year, Adventure At Altitude's instructors teach groundlings to soar with the aid of hang-gliders, ultralights, and flying boats. During adrenaline-pumping experiences, guests can share a tandem vessel or pilot their own hang-glider while soaring up to 5,300 feet in the air. Ultralight SkyRides place passengers at the helm of a hang-glider wing powered by a motorized undercarriage. Passengers are welcome to try out aerobatic tricks such as dives, spins, and wingovers, or teach their partners the proper arm signals for left-hand turns in the air.
If there were a city built just for kids, it would likely include towers to climb on, bouncy platforms to make them fly, and a seemingly endless number of games to play. That may have been what the team had in mind when putting together Kid City, where all of these activities converge in one place for parties, daycare groups, and families looking for a break from their routine. The indoor play centre also offers all-day summer camps for kids aged 5–10.

He is sought after for both his knowledge of fitness and exercise trends and his proven success at his own gym.
Leading a team of professional trainers, he and co-founder Lindsay Jurkowski personalize workouts. They travel to clients’ homes or offices for personal sessions or lead small, tight-knit groups of encouraging peers through rigorous boot camps in the studio (which is moving from 1B-2020 Portage Ave. to 1871 Portage Ave.). Exercisers who prefer to go it alone can cycle through Advantage Conditioning’s ample stock of free weights, resistance bands, and strength and cardio machines. The facility also addresses injuries sustained from playing sports or MMA-fighting a rival mascot with athletic-therapy treatments that involve massage and electric muscle stimulation.
