In 1962, designer Ed Carmen masterfully crafted each hole to weave into the natural lay of the land, yielding a 6,600-yard golf course that melds bucolic surroundings with his own architectural style. A member of the USGA and PGA, Centerton Golf Club strings together 18 holes that meander through acres of dense forest replete with mature arbors, strategically placed bunkers, and Kick Me signs on the backs of fellow players.

Since 1999, the tall oak trees and massive bunkers of White Oaks Country Club's golf course have hindered many a golfer as they've tackled the 6,240 yards of verdant fairways. The layout features obstacles both great and small, presenting an equal challenge in both the 600-yard-long 7th and the difficult par 3 on the 17th. Between rounds of arranging clubs into teepees, players can head into the 10,000-square-foot clubhouse, where drinks from a full-service bar complement a menu of wings, bacon cheeseburgers, and quesadillas at the Oak Room restaurant.
Scurrying through a field littered with barrels as paintballs whiz through the air. Trudging toward safety through a thick marsh. Rescuing fellow teammates stuck in a military transport vehicle. Players encounter these scenarios and more on Gear-Up Paintball's six outdoor fields, where games of capture the flag and team elimination unfold rain or shine. Participants can adjust their guns and practice their marksmanship at the target range before ducking into the woodsball field's bunkers or sneakily overtaking the castle by coating themselves in paint and posing as the court jester. Afterward, guests can prowl the pro shop for new gear from brand-name manufacturers such as Tippmann and Guerilla Air.
To transform their students into one of Champions Kickboxing's titular champions, the studio's instructors teach more than just technique; they incorporate discipline, fitness, and fun into classes for students aged 3 and up. They start working with tykes at preschool age, helping them develop their listening and social-interaction skills, along with confidence to prepare them for school. The pre-martial-arts education welcomes students up to age 6, after which point, kids can enroll in the belt program and begin working toward a black belt in kenpo karate. Adults also train toward black belts in karate classes or study the advanced combat art of muay thai, which incorporates striking with the hands, feet, elbows, and knees and is also known as the "science of eight limbs."
To promote a higher level of fitness among their students, the teachers also conduct strength-and-conditioning classes, including Zumba and kickboxing. The addition of streamers, balloons, and confetti transforms the studio into a birthday haven for kids, complete with races, games of dodge ball, and a personalized birthday cake that the special boy or girl can karate-chop into pieces to serve to their friends.
A traditional layout of kempt bent-grass fairways and greens, Wedgwood Country Club's gently rolling 18-hole course wends through a dense thicket of trees, bunkers, and ponds. Measuring 7,100 yards from the farthest tees, the par-72 course eases clubbers into the round with a relatively open front nine before testing their accuracy and squirrel diplomacy on a tight, tree-lined back nine. With four sets of tees, the course presents a par-hunting test to all players, from beginners to those who can wallop a drive more than 300 yards.
