Olympia Hills Golf Course takes duffers through 6,923 yards of exceedingly well-maintained fairways sculpted into picturesque, naturally undulating terrain. Begin an afternoon of friendly competition or rapidly escalating one-upmanship with a stint at the complex's full-length driving range (range balls only included with weekday option), where sculpted target greens soak up a steady rain of well-struck orbs.
Masterful command of each club will be needed to bisect the Bermuda-grass fairways of Olympia Hills Course, which hosts a relatively challenging gauntlet of manmade mounds, scrupulously placed bunkers, and towering oak trees. Although the course is demanding, its inclusion of four tee layouts makes the round traversable for players of all abilities. Naturalists will enjoy the course's ubiquitous outgrowths of South Texas vegetation and wildlife, with seven holes featuring breathtaking elevation changes of 50 feet or more to challenge golfers' ability to properly select clubs based on both distance and altitude, adjust their stance for awkward slopes, and coax cowardly carts down steep precipices.
Stacks of pancakes. Plates of sizzling fajitas. Half-pound sirloin burgers. The restaurant's casual confines and the military vets that run the place have been serving our country for more than 28 years. But whether customers go for mexican, soul food, or something that combines the two?like the refried beans and southern-fried pork chop on the Mexi-Soul breakfast plate?the food all falls within the definition of comfort food.
Laser Legend's black-lit arena surrounds players in a scene that seems straight out of a science-fiction movie. Glowing planets and stars backdrop the 5,000-square-foot space, where fog creeps out from behind neon-blue walls and 14 robots guard bases. Up to eight teams fire lasers across two levels, competing during match types such as capture the flag or tickle the flag until it says uncle. The phosphorescent ambience also extends to the Glo Golf course, where alien forests and caves surround golfers as they line up putts. The course employs a multi-hole system that allows Laser Legend’s intergalactic greenskeepers to change the cup locations each week. Elsewhere, more than 40 games, such as Sno Cross, Dirty Driving, Doodle Jump, and Juke-n-Box, create a symphony of electronic beeps in the arcade.
The aromas of fresh-baked breadsticks lure visitors into the onsite restaurant, Noble Roman's Pizza, where chefs fry chicken wings, assemble italian-beef subs, and slide pepperoni pizzas into the oven. This casual Italian cuisine also fuels stomachs within Laser Legend's party rooms, where guests can watch satellite TV and birthday kids eat a breadstick for every year they've had teeth.
As the wakeboards, waterskies, and skateboards of The Texas Ski Ranch zoom about outside, the Spring Loaded Indoor Trampoline Park facility holds airborne activities of its own. Trampolines stretch across the more than 15,000-square-foot facility, pulsating beneath the socks of leaping, tumbling, and flipping adults and youngsters alike. The venue also houses inflatable bounce houses for tinier guests, and come Tuesday nights, colorful balls sail through the air during weekly dodge-ball games. The staff hosts birthdays throughout the year, along with Mommy and Me sessions and fitness classes.
