A signature Gene Bates–designed course, Saddle Creek Golf Club's 18-hole layout alternates between dense woodlands and open fields, all brought together by a winding, stone-lined creek that babbles across multiple holes. Encroaching trees, lakes, and angry linebackers loom throughout the front nine, where accurate tee shots must bisect unforgiving fairways. The course's second act takes golfers out of dense tree lines and into an open, links-style layout, where players must conquer deep bunkers, intervening waterways, and unfavorable lies wrought by mounded, Scottish-style terrain. Rounds end with dramatic flair at the 18th hole, where a two-tiered green tests how well players have adjusted to the slick, bentgrass putting surfaces and triangular holes that dot the entire course.

The club's Nineteenth Hole overlooks the emerald expanse, allowing golfers to relive glorious moments over frothy beverages, savory meals from the grill, or mouthwatering sports broadcasts by Brent Musburger on the diner's dual big-screen TVs and LCD projector.

Course at a Glance:


* Designed by Gene Bates * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 6,708 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 72.3 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 129 from the farthest tees * Four tee options

In the deep, dark heart of Chapel Hill Haunted Woods, a specter searches for the head he lost many years ago. This unnamed and hatless figure commands a phalanx of frightful creatures, all of whom await to spook daring visitors every Saturday in October. A chorus of screams emitted from the treetops assures guests they've arrived at the right spot. Once on the path, they'll have to navigate the terrifying trails if they hope to make it out alive, calling upon every ounce of bravery as they snake past a pit of snakes and cross a slender wooden bridge that conceals unspeakable horrors. All proceeds from the frightful enterprise benefit the Young Farmers and Ranchers program, which funds scholarships and targets childhood hunger in the area.

Six ponds and 52 sandtraps aim to thwart golfers as they traverse WillowBrook Golf Club's par 72 layout. Measuring 6,709 yards from the farthest tees, the course's Bermuda grass fairways and bent grass greens offer airborne balls open landing zones, eschewing the need to hire squirrels as air-traffic controllers along the rough.

WillowBrook Golf Club also fosters golf game improvement at its driving range, two putting greens, and short game practice facility. After a day spent fine-tuning their swing and filling their scorecard with only prime numbers, golfers can unwind at Boskey's Grille, which serves a menu of sandwiches, ribs, seafood, and pasta in a casual atmosphere with complimentary WiFi.

Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par-72 course * Length of 6,709 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 71.8 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 123 from the farthest tees * Four tee options

An indoor rock-climbing gym, The Ascent resides inside a cavernous, warehouse-like building where the angled walls are studded with handgrips and gravity challenges participants on every ascent. The facility's top-rope walls stretch as high as 32 feet, and angled walls bevel off into challenging overhangs where chalky-handed patrons cling tightly during ropeless bouldering runs. When opening the gym, owner Jeff Hess—familiar with the passion of bouldering enthusiasts—made sure to leave room for a 2,500-square-foot bouldering area, now located in the center of the large open space.

Jeff's efforts to foster community through climbing have lead to some unique fusions at The Ascent. The new auto-belay system enables climbers to climb without need for a partner. Additionally, a partnership with neighboring Crossfit Murfreesboro now affords The Ascent's members a bonus benefit, access to Crossfit’s cardio and weight-training facilities.

GO USA Fun Park enthralls visiting families with abundant racing, gaming, and putting attractions strewn throughout its indoor and outdoor facility. A fleet of 20 go-karts stands ready to hug the turns and gun down the straightaways of a nearly quarter-mile-long track. A fully lit 18-hole mini golf course challenges werewolves building immunity to silver putters, and 30 golf tees equipped with coverings for rainy days or cold weather allow for skill-building practice shots. Batting cages enhance swinging skills with hard- or softballs approaching helmeted craniums at slow, medium, or lightning-fast speeds. The indoor arcade brims with an array of video and redemption games, with nifty prizes awaiting homes behind an overflowing counter.

At a Glance

In 2010, Mitchel Loveless II became the youngest person ever inducted into the Tennessee State Trapshooting Association's Hall of Fame. A crowning achievement to be sure, but Mr. Loveless was already accustomed to awards. He started shooting trap at the age of 10, and he placed in or won dozens of shooting competitions for years after that. Even his gun is experienced. Mr. Loveless has used his Kolar combo shotgun to fire more than 250 rounds to date.
