The host of qualifier tournaments such as the 2010 Powerbilt Kentucky Open, Eagle’s Nest Country Club stymies and stimulates golf-ball punishers of all ages and abilities. Whirling spheres plunk softly down upon the course’s lush Bermuda fairways and bent-grass greens peppered with six water-crossed holes, numerous greenside bunkers, and the occasional quicksand pit, all set against a backdrop of wooded hills and scenic vistas. After warming up on the 300-yard driving range, players can traverse the course’s 6,344 total yards by way of mechanical carriage.

At True Flight Indoor Archery’s 14 indoor lanes, archers nock their arrows and let them fly to the targets 20 yards away, unimpeded by the errant breezes and impatient arrowhead collectors that so often spoil perfectly aimed shots outdoors. Shorter 10- and 15-meter lanes level the field for newbies to hone their technique, and the staff—affiliated with the National Archery in the Schools Program—imparts basic skills during private lessons. The shop also sells equipment from brands such as Martin Archery, Lancaster Archery Supply, and Maple Leaf Press, outfitting avid shooters with bows designed for marksmanship, hunting, or launching spare sets of castle keys down from the bastion.
Sure, there's mud. Like many other 5ks across the country, the Lion's Chase will get you dirty. But its creators take the most pride in the race's obstacles. From a 20-foot shear rock wall to a 75-foot cable walk over a pond, the trek through 250 acres of trails, creeks, and waterfalls is packed with challenges. Although the course offers a sort of sylvan paradise, it's only 90 minutes from Lexington and 75 minutes from Knoxville, making it easy for city-dwellers to attend.
27 Drive-In carries on the classic American tradition of watching the silver screen from the reclined seats of an automobile. On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at around 8:30 p.m., two towering screens show recent cinematic releases to audience members cozily nestled in laughing Hondas, transfixed Volvos, and sobbing Saturns. Movie-goers motor through a two-lane ticket booth before parking and dialing the radio to an FM station broadcasting the movie’s sound. Anticipated flicks such as Contagion enthrall viewers this September, and the Twilight sequel, Breaking Dawn: Part I will cause theater grass to do sit-ups to withstand getting flattened by the horde of oncoming vehicles.
