LakeShore Links Indoor Golf’s sleek, 8,000-square-foot facility helps golf swings avoid offseason rust with nine golf simulators and a duo of instructors that hold lessons year-round. Within the simulators, wall-sized, high-definition screens capture every blade of grass at 23 legendary courses, including Bay Hill and Pinehurst, and built-in video-swing-analysis cameras allow players to scrutinize their techniques, introducing them to a digital doppelgänger soon to be their inferior. Virtual rounds even grant stick-flickers the freedom to take a mulligan with the mere touch of a button, which instantly lets them replay their previous shot. LakeShore’s resident aces help groom games with everything from private lessons to junior development programs, and golf-simulator league play helps participants sharpen their competitive edge all year round. As golfers play through a circuit of fairway facsimiles, the club curbs appetites with a menu of very real light fare.

The eZone entices players of all ages with more than 30,000 square feet of space for energetic group games. The majestic sport of WhirlyBall combines the tenets of bumper cars, hockey, and lacrosse in a brilliant amalgamation that was carelessly overlooked by Mother Nature. WhirlyBallers in the heat of combat must steer their WhirlyBug cars with one hand while simultaneously using a plastic scoop to fling a wiffle ball at an elevated goal. Groups of up to 10 people can zoom around the court for 30 minutes or can use two Groupons for a full hour of fast frenzy. First-time players might be surprised by the intensity and speed of the game, which thuds and whizzes its strapped-in participants on an electronic court. Each car sports a special steering mechanism that enables the driver to steer in any direction, maximizes control, and makes it easier to parallel park in absolute darkness.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Our highly experienced teachers have worked with celebrities, athletes, beginners, politicians, and many more people. We craft each class to meet the needs of each person with lots of modifications to make the classes accessible to every participant. We create a warm, fun, challenging, and relaxing environment.
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
We thrive on fun and soothing music to get people moving and inspired. From U2 to Eminem to classical music. We use all types of music based on the style of class we are offering.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
Every student is welcomed and introduced to the space and class. We discuss their injuries and goals. They are given warm towels and slippers?mats are also available or they can bring their own. During the class, they are given options for modifications and are encouraged to work at their own level. We encourage people to laugh and have fun during class. At the end of each session, they can enjoy the art and hang out and enjoy complimentary tea. Our goal is to create a luxury fitness experience for everyone.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
For the past two years, the company has been exclusive to only five-star hotels, large companies, celebrities, vineyards, and athletes. For the first time ever, our services will be available to the public. We hope to bring our first class experience to the masses.

League members appreciate the pro-level facilities and onsite gear shop. No matter who's landing on Planet Bowl, the facility's clean, modern architecture, friendly atmosphere, and magical glass bowling shoes make the day special.
Equally comfortable and conducive to a good time is Planet Bowl's bar and restaurant.
