Subject to the whims of the Tar River, The River Golf and Country Club's 18-hole course guides players down a winding path with few straightaway holes within its 6,391-yard length. Ten of the holes feature a dogleg turn of some degree, from the slight bend to the left in the fairway of the 1st hole to the violent rightward turn at the 15th hole. These, coupled with the four par 3s, challenge players to swing powerfully without overshooting their targets or accidentally landing their balls in a stork's nest. Additionally, the river itself comes prominently into play on several holes, calling for fairway hops on the 1st and 10th holes and a dramatic tee shot over water on the par 3 11th.

Course at a Glance:

  • 18-hole, par 72 course
  • Total length of 6,391 yards from the back tees
  • Course rating of 71.1 from the back tees
  • Course slope of 131 from the back tees
  • Four sets of tees per hole

Kidventurez is a blank canvas where children's ideas spring to life. As the mind behind the creative space, owner Stephanie Walker used her own experience as a mother to concoct the facility. "I really love the whole concept of kids using their minds to play," she told Midtown Raleigh News.

Inside, pintsized visitors hop across various stations that spur ingenuity, such as the performing stage, where they can put on plays for friends, and Kenzie's Kitchen, where they can practice burning fake popcorn in a fake microwave. Smaller children enjoy the freedom of Toddler Town's scaled-down attractions, and parents, similarly, enjoy the freedom of either sitting back and watching playtime unfold or leaving for a short respite.

As the super-otter aircraft climbs through the clouds, the energy in the plane is palpable. First-time skydivers and veterans of the sport, all giddy for the oncoming rush of wind and velocity, ready themselves for their leap into the vast blue yonder waiting just outside the plane’s door. For the skilled staff of Triangle Skydiving Center, that feeling is the reason they come to work every morning. Whether they're plunging themselves and a harnessed patron through midair at 13,500 feet or selling high-quality parachute equipment in the gear store, they're dedicated to helping customers find that thrill that previously was only attained by shrinking the kids and living vicariously through them as they spelunk from picnic tables.

Cheryl Frazier, PDQ Farm's owner and instructor, specializes in beginner instruction for all ages. She customizes each equestrian adventure, teaching from the ground up so that her spurring students can safely experience all aspects of horse activity, from grooming and tacking, to riding and high diving through hoops of fire. Each rising rider can choose to learn either the English or Western riding style in a spacious galloping area. Horsemen and horsewomen will learn atop a trusty steed from PDQ Farm's dependable fleet of lesson horses, and those with a horse in the family are welcome to bring it along for the lesson.

Entering its inaugural season, the 10 unique scenes of Haunted Forest at Panic Point challenge adventurous scare devils to brave 2,000 feet of moonlit terror, where they'll meet the meat-eating proprietor of a circus staffed by cannibals and a pack of grannies seeking revenge. Like a convention for claustrophobes, the entire attraction takes place outdoors, so the assorted axe murderers and maniacs can attack from any angle. After escaping the forest's treacherous tendrils, guests can gather any remaining sanity in the Circle, Panic Point's sphere of safety, where they can dance the devilish night away to tunes spun by a live DJ or watch classic horror movies projected on a 31-foot screen.

Nestled in 200 acres of lush farmland, Bull Creek Golf and Country Club's 18-hole public course welcomes golfers with a circuit of greens thoughtfully woven into the area's existing topography. The course's open layout and generous tifton-grass fairways provide ample landing room for gargantuan drives and displaced spacecraft, provided they steer clear of the sparse streams that burble throughout the course. Bent-grass greens supply the bulk of the round’s challenge, combining slick surfaces with subtle slopes to create breaks harder to read than a dissertation written in macaroni noodles. Aside from its kempt grassy monolith, the club boasts a driving range, putting green, and pro shop for further golfletic pursuits, and its snack bar and 100-person capacity banquet facilities provide cozy venues for postround repose and replenishment.
