Nine holes fill the par 35 course at Peachtree Hills Country Club, their undulating fairways and bunkers surrounded by natural pine. From the back tees, the holes total 2,718 yards in length, challenging golfers to master the timeless art of racing a cart to the end in under two minutes.
Swaders Sports Park fuels friendly competition between friends and family members with an endless series of sports and gaming opportunities. Guests jump into one of four different go-karts and zip around two tracks or guide golf balls past challenging obstacles and serene water features—such as waterfalls, streams, and nymphs holding water guns—on two 18-hole mini-golf courses. Golfers can also head to the driving range or smack a different kind of ball in the batting cages.
Inside the facility, a whirring collection of lights and sirens ricochet off the walls from more than 70 arcade games. A multilevel laser-tag arena conceals players behind towering glow-in-the-dark obstacles, and the Route 66 bowling alley allows guests to bowl on highway-themed lanes without the risk of potholes that comes from playing on regular highways.
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.

At Dance Masters Studios, Rock Foster and his skilled staff have an almost encyclopedic knowledge of more than 25 dance styles. Since 1987, they have specialized in the familiar, such as the tango and waltz, as well as more obscure styles such as shag swing dancing and bolero dancing. They work at each student’s individual pace, combining private lessons with group lessons and social dance parties to ensure each person finds their footwork.
Subject to the whims of the Tar River, The River Golf and Country Club's 18-hole course guides players down a winding path with few straightaway holes within its 6,391-yard length. Ten of the holes feature a dogleg turn of some degree, from the slight bend to the left in the fairway of the 1st hole to the violent rightward turn at the 15th hole. These, coupled with the four par 3s, challenge players to swing powerfully without overshooting their targets or accidentally landing their balls in a stork's nest. Additionally, the river itself comes prominently into play on several holes, calling for fairway hops on the 1st and 10th holes and a dramatic tee shot over water on the par 3 11th.
