Fox Lake Country Club incorporates the village of Fox Lake's rolling terrain into a vibrant 18-hole, par 72 golf course. The family-owned facility was originally built in 1925 and redesigned in 1973, when golf officials finally invented holes so players had something to aim at. Today, three sets of tees stretch the course from 5,200 yards at its shortest to 6,400 yards at its longest. The 18th hole is especially memorable, since it's the only one on the course to eclipse 500 yards. After sinking that final par five, golfers can get more work in at an on-site practice facility on their own or with feedback during lessons from the club's PGA pro.
With 70 years of teaching experience between them, Jane and Heidi Wilson form a mother-daughter team that has helped riders learn the grace and technique necessary to win awards throughout the Illinois show circuit. The pair leads horseback-riding lessons at Driftwood Stable that teach students of all ages and skill levels the fundamental skills of hunter/jumper or western styles. Students guide one of the 10 gentle school horses around the facility's 100' x 200' outdoor arena, heated 180' x 200' indoor arena, or acres of verdant pastures ruled by clans of warring bunnies.

Wading through indoor heated pools, the instructors at British Swim School teach independent swimming skills to learners aged 3 months and older, adhering to a curriculum devised by British national swimmer Rita Goldberg. The 30-minute one-on-one sessions and small-group lessons, containing six or fewer swimmers, elucidate essential techniques for water safety and the importance of speaking fluent manatee. Swimboree (ages 3 months–3 years with parents) and Young Minnows sessions (ages 1–3 years without parents) teach wee swimmers basic water-survival skills, such as the back float. Turtle One and Turtle Two classes focus on freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke maneuvers, honing more structured swimming skills in older kiddos. British Swim School's Shark courses enhance stamina and speed and teach even more demanding strokes, such as the butterfly and little-known mountain-goat flail. Certain British Swim School classes require parents to participate in the water or to supervise from the pool deck, and adults-only lessons allow grown-ups to refine their own abilities without the supervision of a toddler.
