Prince George Golf Club’s 18-hole course unfurls across 6,640 yards of kempt, relatively flat fairways hemmed by fragrant pine trees. The picturesque par 72 poses a moderate challenge to golfers, and the bulk of its difficulty comes in the form of small greens, 13 of which are fortified by at least two sand bunkers and one Frenchman sunbathing in the nude. The back nine presents a slightly harder layout that includes two par 3s where tee shots must clear intervening water hazards on the way to their flagged destinations. A driving range and putting green foster preround practice sessions, and PGA pros roam the club’s verdant grounds imparting swing-honing advice in lessons and searching tirelessly for their father’s long-lost mashie niblick.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Length of 6,640 yards from the farthest tees
  • Course rating of 71.1 from the farthest tees
  • Slope rating of 118 from the farthest tees
  • Three tee options

The Great Bull Run brings the thrill of Pamplona's historic event to cities across the United States. Modeled after the Running of the Bulls, this one-day event enables participants to race live bulls, keeping one step ahead of the charging animals to finally prove that toes are better for running than hooves. While the historic Pamplona event has had few serious injuries in its 102 years of existence, The Great Bull Run staff takes even more precautions to ensure runners stay smiling from beginning to end. Additionally, the bulls are given the full respect they deserve, and are not antagonized or harmed before, during, or after the run.

Following the race, runners and newcomers can gather together for a good old-fashioned food fight. Tomato Royale arms entrants with juicy fruit that they can fling at each other. Additional post-run activities include an after-party, live entertainment, and games as well as food and beverages.

Riding a flyboard might make adrenaline seekers feel as though they’re inside a prototypical, water-powered Iron Man suit. They take to local waters with their feet strapped into a main board that shoots powerful jets, and their arms control the board’s direction with two stabilizing sprayers. Atop the columns of pressurized water, riders can reach speeds of 18.5 miles per hour and heights of nearly 30 feet, enough to chase down gulls escaping with stolen hot dogs. With skillful manipulations of the stabilizers, boarders can perform spins, flips, and even cuts through the water.

Extreme Laser Tag sets the stage for space-age combat with its labyrinth of smoky corridors, ramps, and neon-lit walls. Equipped with Nexus Generation laser-tag technology, the arena can host up to 60 vested combatants as they split into teams and vie for points by scoring chest shots on their opponents.

Large plasma monitors outside the arena display the hectic battles in real time, with beam-by-beam battle stats showing who is the scoring leader and who has been melted into plasmic goo. The facility frequently accommodates birthday parties, large corporate gatherings, and fundraiser groups; everyday customers and private partiers often join in battlefield alliances, exacting laser-powered revenge on bosses and double-crossing imaginary friends.
