Mulligans Golf and Games entices golfers to grab their clubs and pole-vault into the universe of gentlemanly sportsmanship across two nine-hole golf courses. Golfers can steadily slice their way through The Meadow's nine par-3 holes, or line up their swings to conquer on The Ridge's tricky combination of par-3, par-4, and par-5 holes. Both courses present unique challenges for players of all skill levels, tucking water hazards into verdant greens and commissioning tennis players to play defense. Those who prefer putters can traverse the bubbling lagoons of two immaculately landscaped mini golf courses.
Mulligan Golf and Games' driving range, open day and night, unfurls 33 covered hitting areas so golfers can practice their strokes and acquire the accuracy to peg their neighbors' rooftop satellite dishes. During golf lessons, Jeff Wathen and other PGA golf professionals analyze swings and approaches using years of experience as well as the latest in video and computer teaching aids. Baseball and softball players can also club white orbs into the sky from eight slow- and fast-pitch batting cages.
The experts at Utah Snowkite Center lead courses and clinics on how to harness wind power across open, snow-dusted areas around Salt Lake City and Park City. In sessions ranging from beginner to pro level, students strap into harnesses, kites, and bars provided by the instructors and begin gliding along the snow, eventually learning how to perform tricks like spins and grabs or pulling a rabbit out of your ski boot. Students must provide their own skis or snowboards and helmets for each lesson. In addition to local excursions, Utah Snowkite Center also organizes snowkiting trips throughout the US and to international destinations such as New Zealand and Yukon.
Entering one of The Framing Establishment's locations is like walking into an art gallery. Large traditional landscapes and contemporary abstracts hang on the walls, and shadow boxes housing portraits and collectibles line the shelves. Amid this modern decor, professional framers scuttle about, sizing objects and answering customers' questions. They help their patrons pick out ready-made frames and art or consult with them to determine flattering custom mouldings and mats for their photos or most impressive parking tickets. They also help customers transform their TVs into works of art by providing frames and fabrics that complement home furnishings.
Even if you switch between running forwards and backwards, treadmill workouts can get monotonous. Luckily, that isn't the case with CrossFit West Jordan?s workouts, which, in keeping with the CrossFit tradition, change daily. During one session, someone might swing a sledgehammer through the air; during another, they might flip a tire end over end, then take a rewarding nap inside of it. The end goal remains the same, though?to build rippling muscle and amp up cardio strength.
The safety-certified coaches at Olympus Gymnastics have taught talented tumblers that have gone on to participate every year in the Junior National Olympics and Utah State Championships. Students ages 3 to 15 years can pick from a schedule of floor-tumbling classes, dropping into the facility once a week to increase their physical dexterity, hone their mental determination, and develop their vocabulary for pommel-horse whispering. Coaches teach tots the basics during classes, and leaping adolescents limber up their bodies in tiered levels and earn their way toward airborne flight, vaulted exploration, and bar-gripping acrobatics. The experienced staff evoke a positive and encouraging atmosphere, in which every child receives individual attention, support, and an opportunity to take an honest bow that wasn't earned by being the first to throw pudding across the school cafeteria.
River Oaks Golf Course was carved from the pond-spotted wetlands that surround the Jordan River to form 18 holes of scenic golf. Golfers prime their swings at the course’s 40-stall driving range to prepare for the round, which begins with three consecutive holes featuring prominent water hazards that still hold a grudge against the sun for ending their glacial childhood. Snow-capped mountains peek above tree lines, enhancing the landscape as golfers play the course. Those in need of an equipment upgrade can browse a vast selection of new clubs, clothes, and accessories at the pro shop, where large observation windows let guests soak in views of the course, stare into the glassy waters of the river, or keep tabs on factions of rebellious golf carts.
