J.D. Legends nourishes entertainment-hungry families with a massive facility stocked with bowling, a restaurant offering Southern-style fare, a bar, and an arcade. The 24-lane bowling alley features a new-and-improved scoring system to better capture lane-skipping curveballs and light-speed strikes. During open-play hours, shoes gently cradle the feet of their temporary masters as lanes brace themselves for the hurtling of bowling balls down their slender midsections. The lanes frequently host themed parties and events, including cosmic bowling every Friday and Saturday night.
The facility?s art-deco carpeting and citrus-colored decorations invigorate bowlers with game-enhancing visions of early 20th-century French heydays and afternoons spent lazing about under yellowed skies.
Jackie Tamminga, co-owner of Tammcor Fitness with Keith Tamminga, draws on more than two decades of experience in the fitness industry each day. She slips through the club, overseeing trainers during complimentary sessions introducing guests to safe and effective techniques. Cardio machines purr, punctuated by the percussive, metallic sounds of resistance machines, free weights, and Olympic gold medals just being tossed on the medal pile. Music drifts from group fitness classes covering workout methods including salsa, yoga, Zumba, Pilates, and spinning. Patrons of all fitness levels mingle in the gym, and special programs cater to groups including the elderly.
Tucked away in a private neighborhood, Lone Oak?s 18-hole golf course stretches across 6,473 yards of rolling countryside speckled with mature trees. A stone-lined pond occupies the center of the course, attracting geese and other waterfowl and striking fear into the heart of any golf ball that never dreamed of becoming a barnacle. An onsite driving range prepares swings for forays onto the fairways, and a practice green helps players to get a feel for the speed of the club?s putting surfaces. Lone Oak?s private club also encompasses a 25-meter pool with six swimming lanes, a diving board, and a deep end for competitive snorkeling.
Champions Sports dedicates 40,000 square feet of space to helping athletes of all stripes improve their skills. The facility specializes in baseball and softball, featuring five Iron Mike batting-cage machines that spit out fast-pitch softballs and baseballs at speeds of up to 75 miles per hour. Sixteen drop-down batting cages match with the ProBatter PX2 simulator to test players' swings, while coaches, including former professional players, teach hitting, fielding, and pitching skills. The all-season complex is also home to winter baseball and soccer leagues that let players practice their skills without having to face a team of snow wraiths.
