Usually eating a burger doesn't do much for your golf game. But it just might when you're eating it at Rolling Oaks Golf Club Bar & Grill. That's because the restaurant features its very own driving range, where diners can whack buckets of golf balls on a 40+ spot range, or on extra large chipping and putting greens before and after their meals. A practice sand trap keeps their skills sharp, and they can even measure their progress with signs marking 110?272 yards.

When they're done practicing, it's time to head back in and grab an order of fried pickles, some chicken wings, and an ice-cold beer. There's also an outdoor patio where diners can enjoy happy hour drinks daily and live music on the weekends while they watch the sun travel to China.

As the former world-record holder for driving distance, Brad Peterson turned his passion for power into an all-encompassing purview of golf strategy. For more than 14 years, Brad has been helping golfers lower scores through private and group lessons at Peterson Golf. He determines the issues his student might be experiencing and identifies key areas for improvement. Armed with this information, he devises custom lesson plans, including swing-specific exercises and video-swing analysis to reveal imbalanced backswings and triple-axel follow-throughs.

Although Brad has taught more than 8,000 students in his career, one pupil stands out, not only as a physically imposing human but also as a success story: NBA Hall of Famer Rick Barry. After meeting and discussing golf, Brad turned Rick into a three-time RE/MAX World Long Drive Champion with his techniques for maximizing power and avoiding low-post rejections by other former NBA big men.

Olympian Fencing Club's coaching team, helmed by U.S. Olympian and award-winning blade buff Velizar Iliev, shepherds students of all skill levels through sword-swinging sessions that bolster balance, agility, and strategy formulation. Neuvieme novices can orient themselves in the world of rapier weapons and wit in beginner-level classes—which teach proper épée employment, basic attack and defense tactics, and point scoring—and more seasoned swordsfolk can hone their skills in intermediate and advanced classes. Or, opt for the more fitness-focused open-fencing sessions, which eschew competitive matches for friendly bouts devoid of pressure and duel-invoking glove slaps.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
