The path to a dependable golf swing starts at Natomas Golf Center, a full-service practice facility where golfers can fine-tune their game until midnight every day of the week. A fully-lit driving range with both mats and grass hitting areas fosters straighter drives, and covered hitting bays keep players safe from inclement weather or screaming eagles convinced that golf balls are their eggs. Golfers can also practice their touch with the putter on an 18-hole putting course and a practice green, or work on their feel around the pin at a chipping area with a practice bunker. To enhance their practice sessions, golfers can enlist an on-site instructor for a private lesson.
Slot cars had their heyday in the 1960s, when some 3,000 public tracks hosted races throughout the United States. Fast Track Hobbies keeps the tradition alive today with two signature courses and a fully stocked parts counter. Holding races every Saturday evening, the store saw the rise of local stock-car prodigy Justin Colvin, who took home two USRA championships this past year. In addition to slot cars, Fast Track offers a full range of R/C gear, Pinewood Derby kits, models, and rockets for trading baseball cards with Mars.
