Named Best Golf Course by CrossRoadsNews readers in the 2010 Best of East Metro Readers' Choice Awards, Sugar Creek Golf Course challenges seasoned and novice shooters to navigate more than 6,200 yards of manicured countryside. Hop into Sugar Creek's included golf cart with your best friend, dad, or best friend's dad to explore the publicly owned par 71 course, which dares dimple dabblers to dodge its low-slung bunkers and master the movement of well-kept greens. Guests can swat the included buckets of pocked spheres skyward one by one at the lighted driving range, tap them precisely at putting greens, or polish skills at the practice bunker. Once iron swingers have sufficiently conquered Sugar Creek's fairways and snorkeled its water hazards, they may end links journeys at the full-service clubhouse or in the retail realm of the Sugar Creek pro shop.
Honey Creek Golf Club's par 72 course features more than 6,000 yards of greenery and smooth TifEagle Bermuda greens, designed to challenge first-time clubbers and full-time swingers alike. The scrupulously maintained course's scenic fairways and challenging slopes require patience and an arsenal of shots to conquer. To help carry around a golf bag filled with iron, wood, and Ziploc bags full of lead dental fillings, Honey Creek Golf Club lends golfers a motorized cart from its stable of purebred golf carts. Aspiring Arnold Palmers can sate their thirst with a drink of their choice at the 17,000-square-foot clubhouse.
One-hour swing-analysis lessons are one-on-one sessions led by Edwin Watts' knowledgeable instructors, who have years of teaching and competing experience hidden beneath their pleats. Students first showcase their swings in front of a video camera, then a human-and-laser-hybrid team analyzes grip, setup, backswing, and downswing to reveal exactly where and when pendulums started hanging out with the wrong crew of slices, hooks, and hamsters. Next, trainers attempt to correct students' swinging problems with personal instruction and a pinch of pixie dust.
