An effective golf swing features several moving parts working in one smooth motion: a controlled backswing, a still head, a well-timed release of the wrists and turning of the hips. At Tomball Golf, golfers can hone their swings with the help of golf instructors and swing-analysis technology from the climate-controlled comfort of an indoor training facility. The studio's golf simulator lets clubbers partake in a round of golf or driving-range session—aided by dazzling graphics and advanced ball-flight-tracking sensors—without making themselves susceptible to rainstorms or the airplane surveillance of rival golfers. Tomball Golf's staff of instructors also offer lessons for golfers of all ages and abilities, making use of the facility's indoor swing-tracking devices and putting green as well as an outdoor short-game area.
With a full line of clubs from major brands including Taylor Made, Mizuno, Ping, and Titleist, Tomball Golf furnishes upgrades for players with aging wedges or drivers that requested to be melted down and used to build space shuttles. The facility's club-fitting technology ensures that golfers are getting the most out of their equipment by matching their swing and body type with their ideal club set.
Though Willow Creek Ranch of Tomball is a tranquil pet resort and boarding facility, the calm atmosphere is occasionally shaken up by the sounds of enthusiastic instruction. Rail fences run throughout the private ranch, designating areas for both horses and dogs. Near the central onsite pond, hounds can often be seen leaping off the dock, paddling, and playfully yapping at the mailmen of their daydreams.
Just a bone’s throw from the pond, trainers assist guests with such equine and canine skill sets as grooming, tacking, and riding. Resident behaviorist Amber—who holds a certification from the National K9 School for Dog Trainers—helps students navigate all manner of caring endeavors. For instance, she can help owners as they prepare for the arrival of a new baby or elegantly explain to dogs how to retrieve news stories online.

The inspiration behind the doggy-sitting business For The Love of Dogs lies, simply, in its name. Its owners always owned and cared for dogs, discussing the shortcomings or successes of other pet-care services. Finally, they decided to do dog-sitting right, so they got their own facility and haven’t stopped having friends over to play since.
The owners outfit their play space with rubber floors—easy on joints young and old—and provide nontoxic toys for the pups to chew on. They watch over canines in owners’ stead from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, even sitting from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays. They reward well-mannered visitors with treats from The Barkery, a line of dog treats made from organic ingredients. Each visit includes grooming—a service that the staff offers separately—along with training services and professional waste removal for yards and doghouses due to be rented out to misbehaving spouses.
