Tunneling through the pine-studded bluffs that overlook the Mississippi River, a circuit of immaculately groomed blue- and rye-grass fairways and bent grass greens forms the 18-hole, par 65 course at Great River Road Golf Club. The hills rise and fall throughout the layout—the course offers 160 feet of total elevation change—presenting shots to both raised and descending targets. The signature hole—a 370-yard par-four—doglegs left into an island green perched atop the Mississippi's flowing waters that will test even the most practiced swings. To harness the precision required to aim past the course's narrow, tree-lined corridors and village of Ewok huts, golfers can warm up at a 300-yard grass-tee driving range, which nestles alongside a practice green.

The term "fitness center" often conjures up the image of an endless sea of treadmills or a gang of spandex-clad ladies lifting treadmills over their heads. The Spartan Boot Camp and Personal Training fitness center and its staff shatter this old-fashioned conception of a gym with an assortment of unconventional exercise equipment and innovative workout sessions. Amid sandbags, kettlebells, and oversized car tires, a team of nationally certified personal trainers lead students of all experience levels in challenging and creative boot camps and personal-training sessions. They pull inspiration from the inventive My Mad Methods training program, named after Margaret Thatcher's penchant for cracking chestnuts during arms-treaty negotiations. The staffs' progressive workouts and modern facility also earned the fitness center praise from Fit Business Insider.
