  • The Academy at SilverHorn
    Most courses have one signature hole. SilverHorn Golf Club of Texas has two—one for both nines—and both provide a window into the landscape-savvy brains of Randy Heckenkemper and PGA Tour pros Willie Wood and Scott Verplank, the trio responsible for this 6,922-yard, par 72 course design. At the par-five sixth hole, a 20-acre lake hugs the left side of a 556-yard dog-leg left, making any attempt to shorten the hole by cutting the corner a daring proposition. The inventive use of water hazards—a recurring feature throughout the course—returns on the par-four 15th hole, where two stone-lined creeks cross in front of the green, demanding a strategic approach shot or an amphibious golf cart. Tree-lined fairways and contoured greens characterize the rest of the 18-hole layout, which offers four tees to appeal to golfers of all abilities. The Club also offers a driving range that serves as the grassy classroom for The Academy at SilverHorn Golf Club, where Director of Instruction Rob Myers and a staff of PGA pros and apprentices offer lessons. Lessons cover everything from putting form to swing mechanics to learning specialty shots, such as drawing the ball off the tee or chipping it discreetly into your rival’s beverage. Course at a Glance: 18-hole, par 72 course Length of 6,922 yards from the farthest tees Course rating of 73.4 from the farthest tees Slope rating of 138 from the farthest tees Four tee options

  • Dallas Holocaust Museum
    On a single day in the middle of World War II, actions in three isolated incidents represent an ethical lesson taught to this day at the Dallas Holocaust Museum. On that day—April 19, 1943—three Belgian men attacked a train destined for Auschwitz, freeing its passengers; the occupants of the Warsaw Ghetto united in revolt; and at the Bermuda Conference, officials from the British and American governments declined to take action against ongoing atrocities in Europe. The Dallas Holocaust Museum’s main exhibit locates a crucial distinction in presenting these three events: the difference between "bystanders" and what the museum calls "Upstanders." The exhibit was created in the hopes that every visitor would become an "Upstander," moved not only to remember a horrific past but also to take action when faced with modern threats to human rights. A self-guided audio tour relates the heroism of those who stood up on that date in 1943 as museum guests explore artifacts, photographs, and a full-size boxcar. Special exhibits that often focus on photography supplement the permanent installation, and testimonies from volunteer survivors and liberators provide a firsthand perspective on the historical tragedy and its lessons. Along with exposing more than 30,000 students and 22,000 walk-in visitors to its messages annually, the museum advocates engagement with the world through educational programs designed for everyone from educators to law-enforcement officials.

  • Bat City Crossfit
    Equipment: Barbells, dumbbells, medicine balls, pull up rigs, atlas stones, kettlebells Students should bring: Comfortable workout clothes; we have a cold water fountain Registration required: Yes Good for beginners: Yes Average class length: 60 minutes Number of Staff: 1–5 people Class location: Mix of indoor and outdoor classes Established: 2013 Guests allowed: Yes Parking: Parking lot Pro Tip: Concentrate on technique, work hard, be consistent, and challenge yourself. Q&A with Tommy, Coach Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated? We give people free Bat City branded swag and permanent discounts just for having good attendance at no extra cost. For example, six workouts earns one koozie; 15 workouts earns one water bottle; and 21 workouts earns a free t-shirt. If you hit large milestones like 100 workouts, we give you a permanent discount of 10% off and your picture on the wall of fame. We put every single athlete's personal record on the board so they can see themselves constantly getting stronger and faster. It also helps coaches to know exactly what each athlete's stats are. Workouts are constantly varied—but not random—and focused on getting stronger and faster in a safe environment. We also give people free membership to Beyond the Whiteboard so they can track their workouts. Do you run your gym according to a particular exercise philosophy? CrossFit is constantly varied, functional movements performed at high intensity. Safety is our number one rule. You start by learning technique, then you gain consistency, and then you can apply intensity. It's not always easy to go to a large, faceless gym by yourself with no coach to build a program that's right for you. While one or two coaches runs each class, participants support and root for each other. The last person to finish a workout is just as important as the first person to finish a workout. You can compete against each other, or you can just compete against yourself. Everything is scalable, and we have athletes of all ages and fitness levels. Also, everything is measurable, so you'll see yourself getting better every day.

  • Cowtown Wakepark
    Just off a straight stretch of the Trinity River, the sounds of laughter and victorious whooping grow louder. A curious look toward the hubbub yields a vision rarely seen in the city—helmet-clad athletes of all ages splash along the water's surface, launching their bodies in what looks like the offspring of water-skiing and snowboarding onto ramps, jumps, and railings that protrude from the water's surface like geometric islands. It's all part of a regular afternoon at Cowtown Wakepark, the watery brainchild of 20-year wakeboarding enthusiast Tommy Fambrough. During the course of three years, Tommy slowly formed the labyrinth of water-bound obstacles that visitors enjoy today, earning acclaim from the Trinity River Vision Authority's revitalization project for his riverside paradise's part in keeping the area an accessible and productive part of the community. Each wakeboarding run begins when visitors strapped into their Liquid Force boards grab a cable and are pulled from the shore-side wooden platform across the water, cutting through the river's calm surface and pausing only to heckle passing fish. Spectators stick to the shore under covered tents and at picnic tables, or recline on the water's surface inside tented rafts. Onsite instructors can show first-timers the ropes, and also lead summer day camps to instill children aged 7–16 with wakeboarding, kneedboarding, and wakeskating basics.

  • Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
    The grappling fighting style known as jujitsu first came to Brazil in 1914 stored in the hands and mind of Mitsuyo Maeda, a Japanese immigrant and master of the art. He only stayed a year, but it was enough time to plant the seeds for a new jujitsu academy in Brazil. One of the first students at that academy was Hélio Gracie. Hélio absorbed the fighting style quickly, adapting many of the techniques to suit his small frame. He discovered methods of leverage that allowed him to execute joint locks, choke holds, and takedowns on much larger opponents, forming the core of his new Gracie jujitsu method. Ultimately, Hélio's son Royce brought the fighting style to America, famously winning UFC 1, 2, and 4 by defeating opponents many times his own size. Suddenly, Americans lined up to learn this newly unveiled Brazilian fighting style, demonstrating their eagerness by folding themselves inside a box and shipping themselves south. Relson Gracie, Hélio's second oldest son, chose to be an ambassador of his family's fighting style. He was already teaching abroad when his little brother Royce skyrocketed Brazilian jujitsu to popularity. He founded his first school under the name Relson Gracie Jiu-Jitsu in Hawaii, and as the art became popular, he opened new branches of his academy all across the United States. Today, he visits more than 40 academies and associations, sharing his knowledge with thousands of students. In his absence, he leaves instructors whom he personally trained to oversee the education of aspiring fighters.
