Long-driving neophytes with dreams of golf-ball domination can rework swings and locate sweet spots under the tutelage of certified golf pros during hour-long lessons. Instilled with new fairway-conquering wisdom, guests can showcase golf and culinary skills alike as they line up their shots from a natural grass tee and pepper the greens with a small bucket of 45 balls.

Harlem Globetrotters Playing Three-on-Five Since forming in the 1920s, the Harlem Globetrotters have continued to entertain millions of parents, children, and general basketball admirers with a trademark blend of athletic precision and razzle-dazzle showmanship. For the team's 2014 tour, a rotating [roster](http://gr.pn/PHdb6w) of Globetrotter favorites?including three female players?takes to the hardwood each game. Spectators might spot veteran guard [TNT](http://gr.pn/rOe0P4) sharing a behind-the-back pass with dunker [Quake](http://gr.pn/QTIGVh), whose high jump once cleared 7 feet, cruelly dashing his dreams of working in a ceiling-fan store. The Globetrotters might also present a study in contrasts with 5-foot-2 [Too Tall](http://gr.pn/PHdmPh) and 7-foot-4 [Stretch](http://gr.pn/1dYrbUt), the team?s tallest member. During each Globetrotters game, youngsters laugh along and witness the jovial jocks performing classic routines of unconventional passing and sudden transmutations of water into confetti. To infuse their visits with an extra shot of unpredictability, the Globetrotters also let fans in each city vote on special rules for every game; past rules have included the use of a four-point shot and the installation of a penalty box. Over the years, similar antics have followed the Globetrotters around the world, including to 122 countries and territories and all six continents on which basketballs grow naturally. The Globetrotters? extensive travels haven?t gone unnoticed: they?re one of the few teams to earn a spot in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame as ambassadors of the sport.

The Enjoy LifeStyle Center wears many hats in order to enchant the teens and youngsters who pass through its doors. The nonprofit serves as a photography studio, music venue, and theater, though its focal point is an indoor skate park, Dream. Replete with halfpipes, mini ramps, and rails, the park holds public skates every weekend, including times just for kids aged 11 and younger. The focus on skateboarding continues in the center's retail shop, which stocks its own line of boards and employs only cashiers who’ve heard of skateboarding.
