An emerald jewel set into the 1,000-acre framework of a residential community, the championship course at Creekmoor meanders along ridges and conceals daunting holes in tree-shaded valleys. The course's lush zoysia fairways and 65 sand bunkers challenge both greenthumb golfers and green-jacket holders as they hunt eagles and birdies across its 18 holes. Their path to glory takes hazardous turns at the crystalline lake that borders hole seven, while prevailing winds push balls off course near the ninth hole—a 660-yard behemoth known as The Monster at Creekmoor. Before launching their dimpled projectiles at that unholy beast, golfers can practice knightly strokes and parries on the course's driving range.

Locke's Karate Academy's skillful staff will train Groupon-holding block-breakers in one of two martial arts disciplines. The Korean discipline of Tang Soo Do, the close cousin and occasional doubles-tennis partner of Tae Kwon Do, focuses on aerobic kicks and cardiovascular fitness. Practitioners of the Okinawan Goju-Ryu style—which is traced back to the Fukien province of China but founded on the Japanese island of Okinawa—build muscle strength and practice powerful punches for close-in fights or recurring nightmares about battling fighting-nun puppets. Under the tutelage of Sensei Aaron Locke, who moonlights as an attorney, students will absorb a working knowledge of the etiquette, philosophy, and statute of limitations laws of the country their chosen style originated in, transforming their fitness regimen into a holistic educational experience.
The chiropractors at Raintree Chiropractic do more than manually adjust their clients’ spines. They temper inflammatory conditions such as arthritis and sprains using cold-laser therapy and electrical muscle stimulation. They also massage bodies with Swedish and deep-tissue techniques and guide patients through a variety of therapeutic exercises, including hip rolls, stability-ball pushups, and phantom-limb stretches.
Snap Fitness, a 24-hour gym, flourishes with a fleet of high-quality cardio equipment, strength-training gear, and exercise classes. Although this Groupon can only be redeemed at specified locations, members can attend any of Snap Fitness's 1,400 locations to burn calories while running on a treadmill or chasing imaginary bananas on a stationary bike. Alternately, boot-camp classes add structure to schedules and help participants to stick to goals alongside other exercisers. Dynamic instructors guide students of all levels through courses steeped in plyometrics and core-strength workouts, helping pupils to shed unwanted pounds, tone body shapes, and rehearse for uphill cartwheel marathons.
The chiropractic practitioners at Adjust 4 Life are dedicated to helping their patients maintain optimum health through holistic alternatives to prescription meds and full-body Cyberman upgrades. You'll receive a consultation to determine your particular health needs and a digital nerve analysis (a $125 value), during which the spine is scanned with a tool that measures nerve strength between the brain and internal organs and determines just how automatically your autonomic nervous system is performing. Post-exam, you'll receive an adjustment (a $40 value) to your most afflicted area, be it the back, neck, or phantom arm. This is followed by a 30-minute therapeutic massage (a $45 value), ideal for freeing trapped stress from the dark well of your muscles.
The acoustic whoosh of swooping golf clubs welcomes players to Peculiar Golf & Learning Center, where a stable of 16 driving range stalls fosters flusher drives and straighter approaches for players of all abilities. The range features both natural grass and artificial turf hitting surfaces, and clubbers can take aim at distant targets or windswept parade floats from covered or open-air hitting bays, all of which are illuminated by towering lights for late-night practice. A staff of resident aces presides over lessons conducted at the Center, where they help correct swing imbalances and illiterate clubs at the Center's practice green or sand bunker. A fully-stocked pro shop rounds out the Center's deep reservoir of golf resources with an array of clubs, bags, apparel, and other golf gear from brands such as Ping, Callaway, Nike, and TaylorMade.
