Designed by PGA champion Mark Brooks with the classic layout of Scottish and early American links in mind, Southern Oaks Golf Club organically incorporates the natural landscape into a challenging 72 par course. Ideal for average to advanced players, the course keeps haphazard whackers in check with bunkers lurking on nearly every hole and talkative teens waiting to distract on each green. Rented carts come in handy as the peaceful grounds encompass 300 acres and yardage per hole ranges between 5,350 and 6,650 yards from front and middle tees and 7,100 from the back.
At Lone Star Gymnastics, each summer day camp boasts a different energetic theme and activity plan. With camp titles such as Splish Splash, Mad Scientist, and Crazy Cooking, the gym aims to expand the campers' interests while maintaining a balance of physical and cranial activities. Enrollment is generally capped around 30 campers, but if more enroll, Lone Star will add instructors to maintain a perfect kid-to-adult weight ratio.
The instructors at TITLE Boxing Club Arlington have found a way to motivate their students through workouts: by fostering a supportive sense of community amongst them. They encourage each other—and themselves—through body-strengthening boxing workouts and kickboxing, which torches calories while toning the arms, abs, and springs that pop out from the heels. They can enlist in one-on-one personal-training sessions for an even more intense workout and nutritional tips.
At Calirumba Dance Company, experienced dance instructors and choreographers teach students of all levels the fundamentals of Latin dance. Named for the founders’ home in Cali, Colombia, the studio is the brainchild of dancers from the company Yurumangui, who, after showing off their dance skills around the globe, decided to share their talents with those eager to learn. The staff hosts hour-long classes in salsa, salsa Colombia style, and the tango multiple times per week, and even invites children to try their hand at dancing or eating salsa.
