Northern Dunes’ front nine holes follow the curves of natural sand dunes in the manner of an original Scottish links course. Casual and avid golfing duos tangle with a par 72, 18-hole course (up to a $55 value per player), exchanging ball banter with trees, fescue, water hazards, and bunkers filled with natural sand in short par 3s and wordy par 4s. Pairs drive between fairways in an included power cart (an $18.50 value per player), navigating the greens' lulls, rises, and ghosts of squirrels past with GolfLogix GPS. The clubhouse nestles its rustic walls between the front and back nine, welcoming hungered putters to the 70-seat Dunes Bar and Grill. The pub proffers breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as a list spanning wine, beer, and mixed drinks. Club-less golfers may rent a set for an additional $12.50 fee.

Golfers could spend a whole day at Brooklea Golf & Country Club without hitting the same shot twice. With 27 holes of tee-to-green terrain and a practice facility with a 300-yard driving range, a 6,000-square-foot chipping and putting green, and a short-game area with practice bunker, the complex gives golfers the chance to work on all facets of their game. As the course's grassy centerpiece, the 18-hole championship course unrolls 6,587 yards of tree-lined fairways and fast, bent-grass greens pinched by the occasional water hazard or bunker filled with silica sand. Measuring 1,750 yards, the 9-hole West course packs four par 4s and five par 3s into an abbreviated layout so players can conveniently squeeze a quick round into their schedule without drilling holes into their office floors. Head teaching professional Darryl Cram and CPGA pro Chris Near helm the Brooklea Golf & Country Club academy, where students of all ages and abilities hone their par-hunting skills.

Championship Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,587 yards from the farthest tees
  • Four tee options

Go-karts zoom around a tire-lined track at Blue Mountain Go Karts, but the family-fun centre—which has been a Collingwood staple since 1964—offers a lot more than high-octane rides. Its outdoor grounds encompass batting cages, a full mini-golf course, and a 100-foot slide that was once used to train penguins for the winter games. Junior carts are available for children ages 5-10 on a designated junior track. And picnic tables make the perfect place for lunch.

Glowing monkeys scamper toward a neon waterfall, and a knight bearing a radiant yellow lance rides past a bright orange octopus emerging from the ocean. What appears to be a time-traveling session gone awry is really the evolving environment within Putting Edge’s indoor black-lit mini-golf course, which whisks players to deep seas, Aztec jungles, and medieval times. Since opening its original location in Canada, Putting Edge has now expanded to 16 North American locations, all of which invite guests onto its challenging 18-hole courses to seek victory over opponents and the forces that keep their teeth from not glowing as brightly as they could. Elsewhere, the facility houses private party rooms, concessions, and an arcade filled with gamer favorites such as air hockey.

Bulldog Interactive Fitness began as a facility exclusively for kids, combining fitness with summer camps, birthday parties, and other fun activities. From there, the trainers expanded to include the whole family. Kids play dodge ball, practice hip-hop cheer, or compete in bouts of indoor floor hockey, while adults kickbox or stretch into yoga poses. Should parents' workouts last longer than their offsprings', the kids can head to the supervised games area for electronic or tabletop amusements.
