Measuring 5,825 yards from the farthest tees, Hawk's Landing Country Club's 18-hole, par 70 golf course doesn't require extreme length off the tee—but it does demand accuracy. Dense groves of trees squeeze nearly every fairway and green, and water hazards lure errant golf balls and thirsty golf carts on seven holes. On the 5th and 6th holes—two midlength par 4s—and the par 5 hole 17, golfers must exercise caution on both their drives and approach shots to avoid peripheral waterways that run along the length of the fairways. After carefully working around ponds and streams throughout the course, the 18th hole brings the round to a fitting end: a 190-yard par 3 where tee shots must somersault directly over a water hazard stationed right in front of the green. Before rounds, golfers can warm up their swings at the club's grass-tee driving range or sign misbehaving short irons up for a lesson at Hawk's Landing's golf academy.

The sounds of jovial chit-chat, sharply struck drives, and golf balls rattling into holes fill the air at Canton Indoor Golf Center, where guests can hone their swings in a festive environment with its own sports bar. Stationed around the center’s perimeter, eight high-definition Year Roundz golf simulators transport clubbers to digital models of courses such as Pebble Beach and Bay Hill. Throughout rounds, swing-tracking technology ensures that each flush tee shot finds the fairway and each errant swing prompts digital avatars to berate their 9-iron. The colorful, pirate-themed corridors of Glow Cove’s black-light mini golf offer a competitive challenge to slope-reading skills. The multifaceted practice facility provides a climate-controlled venue for lessons conducted by PGA-certified instructors, who use the simulators’ swing analysis features to sharpen their observational prowess and gather intelligence for mankind’s reckoning with intelligent machines.
Sudsy libations from Year Roundz Sports Bar & Grill keep guests in high spirits as they engage in golf fun or simply lounge in the glow of sports-tuned TVs.
