Tiger Lanes Bowling Center unites loved ones and liked ones in the traditional American pastime of heaving heavy balls at wooden targets. With an hour at their disposal, pin-clobbering enthusiasts have ample time to hash lace their rental shoes and warm up their fingers before taking the bowler's mound, greasing up their three-holed spheres, and toppling pins like a corrupt government. Each lane accommodates up to eight players, allowing a single alley to be shared by a large family, small community group, or baseball team trying to ditch its obnoxious left fielder.

Head Coach Sonny Dykes leads the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs through a series of strategic plays during a pigskin-passing match against the New Mexico State Aggies. Starting quarterback Nick Isham, chosen as the 2010 Old Spice National High School Player of the Year, applies his confidence in passing footballs and traffic on two-lane highways to the playing field, allowing the Bulldogs to maneuver around their helmet-headed opponents. Looking to improve upon last year's achieved 5–7 mark, the home team will attempt to pin their rivals to the ground using nothing more than ferocious tackles and an endless supply of velcro.

Amid the Louisiana summer heat, Beauregard Country Club stands out like a desert oasis. The bright greens of its 18-hole golf course provide par-hunting recreation for players of all stripes. And guests hone their footwork, agility, and baseline game at the outdoor tennis courts—which provide a valid reason to take a dip in the club's outdoor swimming pool.

Designed with the input of former US Ryder Cup team captain and 1983 PGA Championship winner Hal Sutton, Olde Oaks Golf Club’s 27-hole golf course weaves through 34 acres of wooded terrain teeming with ponds and streams. All three 18-hole combinations span more than 7,000 yards from the farthest tees, though the course’s open fairways offer plenty of space for golfers to unsheathe their driver or airdrop golf balls from remote-control helicopters. Though all three nine-hole layouts showcase plenty of natural hazards that add challenge to rounds, the Cypress and Meadow courses prominently feature ponds and streams, including difficult forced carries on both Meadow’s seventh and eight holes and Cypress’s fourth.

Before rounds, golfers can warm up at Olde Oaks Golf Club’s recently revamped driving range and head to The Grille at Olde Oaks after the round’s final putt and strut to enjoy the social trappings of a full-service bar, burgers, and two televisions.

Course at a Glance:

  • 27-hole course designed with collaboration of former US Ryder Cup captain Hal Sutton
  • Nine-hole Oak measures 3,622 yards from the farthest tees
  • Nine-hole Cypress measures 3,638 yards from the farthest tees
  • Nine-hole Meadow measures 3,681 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating range of 75 to 75.2 from the farthest tees (Cypress and Oak 18 features lowest rating)
  • Slope range of 136 to 143 from the farthest tees
  • Five tee options available

A nominee for Gulf States Teacher of the Year four years in a row, Class A PGA member Pete Lockwood brings more than 12 years of teaching experience to each and every lesson. Pete came to the United States to play college golf at age 19, leaving behind his native Australian landscape and its score-crushing inverted gravity. After spending years in the States, he's learned to eschew trendy swing theories in favor of providing lessons tailored to the golfer's physique and real-world habits. Potential lesson-takers can schedule their instruction time at Querbes Park Golf Course driving range on Monday–Saturday.

The Funny Bone has farmed laughs thanks to comedy heavyweights such as Cedric the Entertainer and Jamie Kennedy, as well as up-and-coming talents with fresh faces, fresh routines, and that fresh pine scent. Upcoming comics include Sam Demaris (Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28), the winner of the 2002 "Houston's Funniest Person" award. Couples looking to laugh off a first-date marriage proposal can cash in on the gut-wrenchingly honest observations of Comedy Central–featured Rodney Laney, whose Jersey-brewed stylings are finely tuned to tickle the giggleplex and pluck the shock-cartilage (Wednesday, July 13 and Thursday, July 14).
