Designed by course architect Les Furber, The Links at Penn Hills’ 18-hole course weaves through waterways, wooded tracts, and rolling terrain for 7,236 yards of challenging golf. Breezes drift onto the course from the nearby Shubenacadie River, creating a tranquil environment for players to split fairways with soaring drives and carb-free clubs. At the end of each hole, bent-grass greens present a slick surface for each testy, breaking putt. Water hazards come into play on six holes, including the par 5 seventh, where shots must clear water and land on a bunker-fortified island green patrolled by a bearded, marooned Tom Hanks. The course promotes game improvement with a training complex that includes a 300-yard driving range, a nine-hole practice green, and a practice bunker. Course at a Glance:

Paintballers descend upon Storm Warning for year-round play on its indoor and outdoor fields. Combatants can settle arguments about neoclassical art with bouts of civilized splatter fighting, supplied by Tippmann 98 Custom semiautomatic paintball guns with 200-round hoppers, HPA air tanks with unlimited refills, masks with thermal fog-resistant goggles, barrel sleeves, and 300 paintballs each. Outside, paint slingers shellac one another on the X Ball Sup Air field or the forested field, where they avoid getting candy-coated by dodging behind trees, pallets, old tractors, and an abandoned squirrel school bus. The indoor course sports support beams, barrels, and a dimensional door (an additional field fee of $5 for indoor use). As a team sport focused on game planning and group strategy, paintball equalizes individual skill level and creates a welcoming environment for all players. Storm Warning only allows field paint, and extra rounds are available starting at $6 for 100 rounds.

Bowlarama welcomes rollers of all ages to challenge each other in matches of traditional 10-pin bowling. Once fitted into rental shoes, groups of up to five players suppress pin rebellions on one of 18–24 lanes. Players aim their sights down narrow, hardwood fairways at murals depicting neon bowling balls and the Norse god of strikes. Keep eyes active on overhanging flat screen TVs or hands focused in matches of pool, air hockey, and video games (amenities vary depending on location). In addition to food and bar services, each Bowlarama hosts cosmic bowling events.

Sackville Sports Stadium’s dual approach to fitness gives patrons the option to attend land and aquatic class styles. With high-energy dance moves, the popular Belly Fit class coalesces traditional African, Bollywood, and Bhangra styles with Pilates in a core-chiseling combination that brings together old and new more seamlessly than a stainless-steel petticoat. The club’s kickboxing, yoga, and step classes tickle traditional fitness tastes, and dance-inspired Zumba heats up workouts with Latin moves. Aqua Zumba submerges the same steps in the waters of the centre’s pool, testing muscles with the water’s gentle resistance and Marco Polo’s light ankle-pulling. The graduated Aqua curriculum includes light, moderate, and high-energy Blast sessions for exercisers of all stripes. Check the Stadium’s schedule for a list of early morning, lunchtime, and evening class times.
