The rye-grass fairways at Eagle Lake Golf Course twine around three ponds and a smattering of bunkers. As nine-hole rounds commence, golfers face a long, wide fairway that encourages long drives, and the fifth hole’s dogleg left calls for expertly dispatched curve balls. The course’s driving range boasts 20 covered stalls, lighted from April through October; 8 of them are heated for hatching golf balls into chicks during the winter. A putting green, chipping green, and 60-yard pitching green round out the practice area, and guests can also take advantage of professional guidance in lessons.
Eagle Lake Golf Course also offers mining-themed miniature golf for the entertainment of smaller-scale gamers. The course's 18 holes of putt-putt wend past diminutive waterfalls and around three mountains, including a 12-foot peak with mine shafts and mining carts.

Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial art based on self-defense that teaches wrestling-like grappling and ground-fighting skills to manipulate opponents into submission. Taught by black-belt native Brazilian fighters, Link's jiu-jitsu classes impart expert submission techniques with an emphasis on traditional Brazilian instruction and student safety when smothering unruly mailboxes in a triangle leg choke. In addition to absorbing rituals in the art of self-defense as jiu-jitsu Jedis, students also boost self-confidence and develop neglected muscles during intense full-body workouts. Link specializes in jiu-jitsu instruction, but classes in mixed martial arts and muay thai fighting provide disciplined cross-training challenges. Classes for beginners, experts, and all levels of students run Monday through Friday with enough flexibility to accommodate busy professionals, school-age children, and undercover heroes traveling on speeding passenger trains.

Throughout the winter, Canyon Sports equips mountain visitors with rental skis and snowboards. It also distributes lift tickets for local resorts including Alta, Snowbird, and Deer Valley, freeing skiers from alternative methods for getting to peaks, such as stowing away in a yeti's pouch.

Named after the cowboy term for the corral of working horses required for long cattle drives, Remuda Golf Course pays homage to the region's roots with an 18-hole course framed by the rugged peaks of the Rocky Mountains. Each hole bears the name of a particular breed of horse, letting golfers brush up on their equestrian trivia without having to pack a Lone Ranger boxset in their golf bag. In addition to its Western flair, the 6,352-yard, par 72 course is distinct in that its most difficult hole is a par-three, the 217-yard sixth hole. Guarded by sandtraps on the left and a soft front that will keep short tee shots from bounding onto the putting surface, the hole will require many players to reach for a 3-wood to reach the green in regulation. Before tackling the course's challenging terrain, golfers can warm up at the practice green and a driving range with covered hitting bays.

Ben Lomond Golf Course's 18-hole layout challenges golfers to send shots soaring against a dramatic backdrop dominated by Ben Lomond Peak and the Wasatch Mountains. Relatively open fairways invite golfers to unveil towering drives before a gauntlet of obstacles demands deft iron play, delicate putting, and experienced sea legs in order to tame the undulating greens. A water fountain on Hole 6 highlights the front nine as it shoots water high into the air against the peaks in the distance, distracting golfers with a postcard-worthy scene as they cruise around in GPS-equipped carts. On the back nine, the par 3 10th hole intimidates players with the precipice of a 210-yard tee shot alongside Highway 89, where street-legal golf carts and speeding ice-cream trucks can easily break a player's focus.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,176 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 67 from the back tees * Course slope of 112 from the back tees * Three sets of tees
