  • Bent Brook Golf Club
    A trio of nine-hole golf courses come together to form Bent Brook Golf Club, which also incorporates a distinctive farmhouse-style clubhouse. While the Brook, Graveyard, and Windmill courses are each unique in their own rights, a few common themes emerge. The first is water, and a lot of it: on the Graveyard course, for example, five large lakes crowd holes number 4 through 7 and demand challenging, hazard-carrying tee shots and approaches. Other features include the meticulously kept bent grass greens, Tiff 419 Bermuda fairways, and tee boxes with four sets of tees, all of which combine to render enjoyable rounds for every level of golfer. After a round, groups can gather around a table at the the Bent Brook Restaurant to rehash their day on the course over selections from the deli-style menu.

  • Bob Sykes Barbeque Inc
    For the last several years, more than 2,000 people have congregated in DeBardeleben Park for one of the most anticipated events of the summer: the Bob Sykes BBQ & Blues Festival. There, guests can enjoy the summer sun while listening to local and national blues acts, grabbing a plate of Bob Sykes?s famous ribs, or watching kids play on the inflatable slides. Food booths, crafts, and activities draw crowds of festival-goers throughout the day, as do the face-painting booth and cool picnicking spots under the trees. Meanwhile, blues music filters through the open air like frisbees who can?t find their owners. A portion of the festival's proceeds benefit local charities.

  • Harper's Practice Tee
    From their home base at Frank House Municipal Golf Course, the PGA pros at the Harper Miller School of Golf help golfers fix broken swings and patch up holes in strategic thinking. Lessons zero in on the fundamentals of grip, posture, and alignment—key components of a winning swing and textbook ice-cream-cone devouring. Short-game clinics help to develop confidence around the green with practice on the putting stroke, chipping accuracy, and bunker play. The pros also follow students out onto the course for playing lessons, which focus on such course-management tactics as how to choose the right club, when to lay up, and when to lie down and take a moment to enjoy the beauty of nature around you.
